Football and boys really are an obsession. My oldest son is 13 years-old and not until this year has been totally obsessed with fantasy football. Sure he had a large opinion when he was younger but this year he will stay up late, despite our struggles to get him back to bed, just to see if he won the games that night. Saturdays and Sundays in our house you can usually hear a football game on in the TV room. No one might be watching the game, but several times over the weekend I am turning off the TV, just to get yelled at for turning off the game 15 mins later! This is new for me, as a kid my father and brother would watch a little football, but golf was usually the game of choice on the TV over the weekends.

So now that I have football enthusiasts, I have decided to beef up my game and create some fun Game Day Decor, like this Pumpkin Football Candy holder. Ever year I have added to my game day decor like this Football Field Runner or this fun Football Mason Jar Vase. I was inspired by the new SNICKERS® bars that have fun football themed sayings on the back. Even though Football season runs way past pumpkin season, I picked up a large and tall fake pumpkin that I found on sale to make this great DIY football decor craft.
What you will need for this Game Day Decor: Pumpkin Football Candy Holder
- Fake pumpkin
- Brown Spray paint
- Yellow Acrylic Paint
- White Acrylic Paint
- Sharp cutting tool
- Football themed SNICKERS® bars & SNICKERS® Crisper
First things first, transform your orange pumpkin into a football. Simply use the brown spray paint, I went with a gloss finish to get the lighter brown color.
Allow to dry completely. Add the football strings to the front of the pumpkin with white paint. Allow to dry.
Paint a goal post on the back of the pumpkin and use this as a guide to cut the opening.
Feel free to add a little ribbon too to dress things up!
Add Touchdown if you wish and fill with your favorite SNICKERS® bars.
