DIY Football Cups

Jan 29, 2016

These DIY football cups are so fun to make for game day events or sports-themed parties, and they are also really easy to make! I made my “footballs” using mason jars, but this project would work well on any clear glass or plastic cup. The trick is serving a dark-brown, colored beverage to pull off the football look (try soda, root beer, tea, or iced coffee).

DIY Football Cups 


Clear mason jars, glass cups or plastic cups
White craft tape or electrical tape


To make the “laces” on the glass, simply cut strips of white tape and adhere to the glass. The lengths will vary slightly depending on the size of your glass. I used a 3” strip for the vertical line and three, thinner 2” strips for the horizontal lines. Once you have your laces on, fill your glass and enjoy! The tape removes easily after your party is over, after removing just wash normally.

What are your favorite beverages to enjoy while watching the game?
