DIY Football Bulletin Board and $300 Giveaway!

10575245_10204667302464323_608792122879901970_oLadies and gentlemen, football season is upon us, and you’ll find no more dedicated football fans than in my hometown of Denver, Colorado. Even though we’re still licking our wounds from our terrible Superbowl loss, the city is pumped up about watching Peyton Manning leading our team into another great season!

I love how excited everyone gets about our Broncos. My kids’ school always promotes team spirit and I see lots of little ones in orange and blue at the bus stop on Broncos spirit days! Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas actually lives in my neighborhood and has been known to greet kids on Halloween, which just adds to the hometown feeling of wanting to support your team! And our local Kroger affiliate, King Soopers has a fabulous promotion this season – on Broncos Game Days, customers can buy 2 liters of Pepsi for 88ยข each, and the day after a Broncos WIN, customers can go in and get a FREE Bronco Donut. Sweets for sweet victories!

We are decorating for fall, and in addition to the autumn wreaths and the pumpkin scented candles, I decided to make this cute little bulletin board for my kitchen. It came out so cute, I might not even keep it – I think I’ll gift it to my mama!


Here’s the step-by-step how I made it.


First, I cut out a football shape from paper and used that as a template to cut one out of cork. Then, I painted a cork square in a Broncos-inspired orange using Tulip soft matte fabric paint – obviously not just for fabric! I added stitching and other details to my cork football using Scribbles shiny fabric paint and glued it in place with Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue. I added a hanger made from bent wire and decorated with buttons and ribbon accents. So easy! I love how it turned out.

    Hopefully I’m commenting in the right spot –

    My favorite thing about football season is the chaos that surrounds the sport. You’ve for your fantasy leagues, the weekends filled with yelling at a TV screen (and those lucky few who actually get to see the games live), and just a bunch of good old rivalry that makes life fun. Oh…and helloooooo booty staring! I <3 a man in tight pants, chasing down a pigskin, and looking fine while doing it. *MEOW*,

  5. Daria says:

    The empty stores during the game! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Wowza, that is the cutest thing ever.
