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.

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!

    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!

    I saw your link and had to click over to see what you were doing with astro turf! These are really clever. I was going to ask where you bought astro turf, but I see in the comments that you got it from Lowe’s. Leo just put up a post about his football mantel. Come over to see it!

    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.
