Fast + Easy Football Banner DIY

Sure, you could put out some chips and dips and call it a Football Party, but we like to pretty things up a little.

Thing is, we are also on a budget. This fast and easy football banner DIY project is perfect for us.


In just a few minutes you can put together this football banner for your next party.


Football Banner Supply List:

  • Jute twine or kitchen twine
  • Scissors
  • Brown construction paper
  • Chalk or white paint pen
  • Ruler or straight edge (optional if you are a perfectionist)
  • Hole punch or wood skewer (for poking holes)


Football Banner DIY, just cut simple triangles from brown construction paper.


To make your football banner, first take inexpensive construction paper and decide what size you want your triangle shapes to be. We wanted something small so we could hang it on our kitchen island.

You can use brown for fun football shapes, but the possibilities for this banner are up to you.

  • Use green paper with yard marks and big numbers for a football field look
  • How about yellow paper for those annoying penalty flags
  • Red paper would be great to represent challenge flags
  • Mix them up in an alternating pattern to suit your party theme
  • This can also be done in team colors to match your team spirit


Kitchen twine, chalk and construction paper are all it takes to make this cute football banner for your party.




Once you have your shapes cut out, draw simple football stitch lines on them using chalk or a paint pen. If you are a perfectionist you can certainly do it with pencil first and go over it with the chalk. We like the rustic look, so we drew ours freehand.

Next punch or poke holes in the top two corners of each paper triangle.

Measure and cut the kitchen string or twine to the length you want. To assemble the football banner, simply thread each paper triangle onto the twine.

To get the slight curved effect, we simply rolled our paper before cutting.


Make your own cute and easy football party banner for virtually free.
