Trace the football template onto the back of the vinyl. Cut each one out individually. I used a total of 7.

Use the E6000 glue to adhere the strips of white leather to the ends of each football. I curved them in just slightly. I found the white leather strips at Hobby Lobby.

Finally, use your glue gun to attach each football to the jute twine. TIP: make sure you attach them on the top 1/3 of the football or they will not hang correctly!

  4. These tips are just the kind of thing I’ve been looking for. I’m having a massive football party this weekend for my friends and coworkers from DISH. I love the decorations; too, my wife will have a blast with these! I also have my Hopper hooked up, and moved all four of my TVs into our giant living room so we can have three games going live. There’s such a broad range of fans coming over, I want to make sure everyone gets a chance to see their team in action! Thanks again!
