Are you wanting to make your next football party a party worth remembering?

Making your own party decor can be the best way to make your party memorable.

This trophy is simple to make and a fun prize for any Super Bowl, Football party or even a family get together.

My family is very competitive and we love playing games together.

Especially when there is a trophy involved. And this was one of the easiest projects ever that my kids loved.

You could even use it as a table decoration for a Super Bowl party or a Football Theme Birthday Party.

We used it for bragging rights.

Here’s how you make it.

  • Square Plastic Vase from a Dollar Store (I found mine at the Dollar Tree)
  • Foam Football Toy (also super cheap from a Dollar Store)
  • Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks (If you don’t have one, you can also find this at Dollar Tree)

  • Silver spray paint
  • Something to paint on (I used a plastic planter turned upside down in the middle of my backyard)

If you don’t have anything to spray pain your supplies onto, I’m sure there are some things at the dollar store you could pick up to use.

Step 1: Paint

First, paint the sides and bottom of the square vase and foam football that you can see with silver spray paint.

Step 2: Paint The Other Side

Next, once initially dry (about 30 minutes) turn the items around to cover all sides with the silver spray paint.

Step 3: Glue

After completely dry (approx. 30 more minutes) use your hot glue gun to build a big blob of glue on the bottom of the vase.

Stick the football into the glue and be sure to position it at an angle.

***CAUTION** Do not squeeze the football.

It will still be possible to squeeze, but that could “crack” the surface of the paint and then you’ll have to paint again with another coat.

Step 4: Prop & Dry

I used a fat highlighter to hold the football on an angle so that it did not fall while the glue was drying.

I was so amazed at how easy this was to make and my kids were excited for how nice it turned out!
