I took small paint cans +lids and covered them in fabric that fit their football prefrences.

Now I'm working on bad call bricks (sponge made to look like a brick), costers, and snacks to go inside. I just need to find a store that sell clear bags to put them in.

Those are way cute, I would love to know how you made those and how you are making the coasters and bad call bricks. Where did  you buy the paint cans are they empty can's. Money is so tight and I'm trying to come up with ideas so if you don't mind sharing I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks a million and hope you have a great week-end

These are fantastic. What did you use to adhere the fabric? Please share more about the bricks as well. Thanks

Hey the small plastic bags you were talking about to put the treats in. you might try looking at this site  http://www.orientaltrading.com/ search for item number HT-3/796. I hae ordered lots of stuff from them and it takes less than a week to get the stuff and I have not been disappointed yet. They also have other bags that you can look at if you want more that a clear bag. Hope that helps.

Lets see if I can remember all the questions long enough to answer them!

I bought the empty paint cans at home depot, it was the cheapest and best variety of sizes. And they came with the lids, but no handle. I attached the fabric with a thin layer of tacky glue. For the small cans that I used it was about 1/2 a fat quarter of fabric. This is the site I got the fabric from if anyone needs a source; http://www.4my3boyz.com/c=8V7ZjafrNrJjrVq7CzkCb3LGB/  Really inexpensive and fast shipping.

The coasters I made using two pieces of the same team fabric sewn together with a piece of towel inside for absorbancy.

 

The bad call brick is a sponge dyed brown and then you throw it in the dryer to soften the corners. I used 1/2 a sponge for each (yet again mine are small) and dyed them with black fabric dye (to lazy to drive to lots of stores to find brown). And then I'm attaching the following poem that I found on line:

Sorry the pic came out small it says:

Bad call Brick, When the referees call was made to quick, it's time to bring out the bad call brick!  Throw it at the set with aim so steady, Now don't you feel much better already?

Thanks for the tip about Oriental trading, unfortunately their shipping to here is often more then the price of the item itself.
