Astro Turf Tailgating Coozies

YEP! You read that correctly! Today I am going to show you how to create these incredibly cute Astro Turf  Tailgating Coozies to get your next tailgating party off to a great start!

Astro Turf Tailgating Coozies


Trish and I absolutely LOVE college football…crisp air, bands, cheering, fall colors, great food, and friends! We both attended the same college and both of our husbands did as well! It is a true family tradition! This is the first in a series of posts I will have for you, to help you throw a fabulous tailgating party. Let’s get started!

Supplies Needed for Astro Turf  Tailgating Coozies…

Astro Turf {fake grass} 
Tape Measure 
Marking Pencil
Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

Step 1:
Mark off the length and width of each rectangle for the coozies on the back of the Astro Turf. I determined that 3 1/2 inches wide by 9 inches long was a good size for the coozies! { I got the Astro Turf at Lowes }

Step 2:
Cut out each rectangle from the Astro Turf. If desired you can heat seal the four sides to prevent the Astro Turf from shedding.

Step 3:
Apply a thin line of hot glue to the edge of one of the 3 1/2 inch sides. Then fold the Astro Turf around to meet the other 3 1/2 inch side and press together with the hot glue. I overlapped mine about 1/4 of an inch.

That is it! Simple and quick! I went ahead and made six…

Do you see an “orange” theme going on here? We are huge Clemson fans! I put orange sodas in the Astro Turf coozies and placed them in these DIY Vintage Crates that I made. I finished off the display with a simple, burlap bunting embellished with painted tiger paws! Perfect!

  12. Oh it’s funny because we just installed turf in our yard so this post caught my attention! Of course, the turf we used was slightly different because it’s make to look identical to regular grass, but this is an awesome idea that I think I might redo for our “New Yard” celebration! Our yard and our beverages will always be green! Haha!

  27. Go Tigers! We are family of Clemson fans and my husband went there, as did my daughter’s BF. In fact, they are going to the first game in Atlanta today. :) This looks like a fun project and since they tailgate all the home games, one that would be a great addition to their celebrating.

  28. Lets go Tigers!!!! I’m a Clemson alum myself! :) Great project!
