Get ready for Football season with these easy football windsocks. This easy party decoration is perfect to make in your favorite team colors for a football party, tailgating afternoon, or just to support your favorite team!
These were pretty simple to make and are just like they look...but I started by using a large nail and hammer to poke holes into the top of my cans.
Then I removed the old wrappers (I was too lazy to do it before I washed them and actually found the water made it much easier to remove them now) and spray painted them brown with the paint I had leftover from my Easy Football Party Treats.
Once the can was dry, I threaded the small ribbon through the top of the can so the ends where inside. Because I cut mine long enough I could make a secure knot that was hidden in the can.
Then I glued the larger ribbon to the bottom of the can so it was fringe and would blow in the wind.
To finish off the can, I used the white electrical tape from my Football Treats to make the laces on the football can. I cut the tape 3 inches long and then in half length wise. I used one of these pieces to make the long lace and then cut the other half in thirds to make the cross laces. It helps to hang the can while your doing this so you can make sure the laces are facing forward when you finally hang it up.
To use these, I plan to hang them along our front walkway and back porch. I think they will make a fun addition to the party décor.
