Team Mama Idea: Personalized Football Pins

Homecoming 2019 is in the books! Spirit days, the parade, the big game (and big win!), and the ever so famous dance, of course!


A bunch of us mamas got together a few days before game day and crafted our little hearts away. We made new fatheads (click HERE for step-by-step instructions) and these super cute, football pins!




We personalized the pins with our players' names and numbers. Seriously, how cute are they?! Want to make one (or a bunch!) yourself? Then just keep on reading!




What you'll need:


  • Foam footballs (can be found at your local craft store or on Amazon)
  • Ribbon in your team colors. (We used 4 different prints; solid orange, blue and white polka dots, football patterned, and blue glitter)
  • Pin backs
  • Letter/number stickers or vinyl if you prefer using a Silhouette or Cricut
  • Hot glue
  • Scissors




What you do:


  • Attach the name and number to the football.






  • Cut the ribbons to the same length (we burned the ends with a lighter to help them from fraying). Arrange them in a similar fashion as pictured below.




  • Hot glue the ribbons and pin back to the back of the football.






  • When you flip it over it should look something like this. Let them dry overnight before wearing.




That's it! Super easy and super cute!





We made them for Homecoming, but they'd be just as perfect for Senior Night! You could even tailor it to your sport by simply switching out the football. The possibilities are endless!
