Have you seen the football field cookies that are so popular? They're the inspiration for my project, a football fan for a football fan! Affiliate links below.
Paper Plate Football Fan
Apply a piece of painter's tape across the middle of the paper plate to establish the horizon. Add five pieces of 1/4" painter's tape radiating down from the center of the plate to form the yard lines.
Paint the smooth section below the horizon line with green paint. Remove the tape. Paint the bumpy perimeter of the paper plate with light blue paint.
When the paint is completely dry, rub a thin, even coat of tacky glue to the smooth section above the horizon line. Sprinkle on glitter in your team colors, covering the gluey area. Allow the glue to dry.
Use a white pen to mark the 50-yard line.
Add letters to spell out a message on your fan. You can put, "Go team!" like I did, or use the specific name of the school, city, or mascot.
Glue a 10" craft stick to the back. Now you have a football fan that will help any football fan stay cool while supporting their team!
