Every year I host a Super Bowl party. And it is always the biggest party of the year, with close to 100 people showing up to support their team (or just watch the commercials).
Since football parties are often about the food, I don’t spend a lot of time decorating. But still want to create some easy DIY football decorations that add to the party atmosphere.
One of the easiest ways to decorate for football parties to create a banner.
These DIY printable football banners use a retro font with a football field graphic background that fits right in with the football party ambiance…whether that’s a cookout in your backyard or tailgating at the game.

How to Make A DIY Football Flag Banner
Print out the DIY Football Banner printables on a color printer using letter size paper (get the template above).
If you don’t have a color printer, send the files to a print shop, like Staples, Office Max or FedEx to have them make color prints for you.
Cut out the printed flags with scissors.
Use a hole punch* to make a hole in the top left and right corners of each of the flags.
Finally, pass a string through the holes in each of the letter flags. Make sure that the string goes in order and passes along the backside of the flags.
Then pin your string up along your wall or table to showcase your finished football banner.
This is about the easiest, cheapest football party decoration you can make and it totally adds to the football party atmosphere.
