Over the last few weeks, my house has turned into game central. If it has to do with football, we’re involved. Usually our house is game central. Friends and family come over to hang out and watch the games. The kids hang out and play in between watching the game and in between watching them and whipping up some snacks, I’m chatting away with the wives who are usually in the kitchen with me. We have a view of the tv from the kitchen so we can chat and watch at the same time.
Since we do a lot of entertaining during football season, I try and switch up my menu weekly. One week it’s pizza and wings. The next it might be my slow cooker buffalo chicken dip. When it comes to snacks, I try to keep things simple. A big bowl of popcorn and a few sweet snacks like SNICKERS® and the guys (and gals) are usually good until dinner is ready or the pizza is delivered.
I have cute football themed serving bowls I use for the popcorn and chips but I wanted something cute to use for the SNICKERS® bars. After searching for the perfect dish and always turning up empty handed, I created my own.
It was so easy to make and I love how it turned out. If you have a football fan at home or need a hostess gift for someone who loves football, then you’ll definitly want to make one of these.
FOOTBALL FIELD SERVING DISH
Here’s what you’ll need some green and white paint, square dish, 3 wooden dowels, yellow ribbon and a hot glue gun.
Step 1: Paint your dish green to resemble the football field. You’ll have to paint a few layers to make sure it’s covered well.
Step 2: Once the paint is dried you’ll want to paint on the field lines.
Step 3: Cut the Use wooden dowel into 4 pieces about 3-4 inches long (depending on the size of your dish) to make the goal post. Use the hot glue gun to attached the pieces together. Then paint yellow or wrap with yellow ribbon like I did. Then secure it to the tray with more glue.
Once it’s dry, fill it with these football themed SNICKERS® and some SNICKERS® Crisper Bars I found at CVS. They’re my one stop shop for my game day needs. Especially those last minute parties.
With a CVS only minutes from my house, it’s easy to run in grab some chips, drinks and SNICKERS® for a game day party anytime. Before you head to CVS to pick up some SNICKERS®, print out this coupon to save on your next purchase.
