Directions

Cutting a Football Sleeve out of Brown Construction Paper

  1. To make the football sleeve for your mason jar, lay a sheet of brown construction paper flat on a table. Using a ruler and a pencil, trace a rectangle onto the construction paper. The rectangle should be wide enough to wrap all the way around your jar and tall enough to cover the jar from top to bottom. The mason jar we used is about 2 ¾ inches in diameter and 4 inches tall, so we cut a rectangle that measures 2 ¾ inches by 9 inches. Carefully cut out the rectangle.
    Cutting Football Laces out of White Construction Paper
  2. Now it’s time to make your football laces. Use your ruler and pencil again to trace six very small, thin rectangles onto the white construction paper. They should be small enough to fit onto the brown rectangle and create a football lace pattern. One of the white rectangles should be longer than the other five. Our longer lace measures ¼ inch by 2 ½ inches, and our five shorter laces measure ¼ inch by 1 ½ inches each.
    Laces Glued onto Football Sleeve
  3. Lay your brown rectangle horizontally on the table. Using glue, attach your long construction paper lace vertically in the center of the brown rectangle. Then, attach each of the five remaining short laces horizontally right on top of the long lace. Make sure to evenly space out your short laces.
    Football Sleeve Wrapped Around Mason Jar
  4. Your football sleeve is ready! All you have to do now is tightly wrap it around your mason jar and secure it with some tape along the back. If you want your football to look even cuter, tie a piece of twine around the mouth of the jar. Repeat steps 1 through 4 for each mason jar.
    Football Mason Jars Filled With Popcorn
  5. Fill the jars with your favorite football popcorn flavors and serve to your pigskin-loving friends! We used Cheese, Buffalo Ranch, Chocolate Drizzle and Almond Pecan.

What other kinds of football-shaped food will you be serving at your Super Bowl Party?
