Homemade Football Party Invitations

If you are looking for invitation ideas that you can make yourself or that your kids can create, one of these DIY invitation projects could be a great choice for your upcoming event. After all, a homemade card is perfect for a get together that involves rooting the home team on. A homemade party invitation is a cost-effective and fun-to-make choice.

Easy Kids Invite

Kids who are having a sports-themed birthday party can help make their own invitations. Follow these simple steps to create an easy invitation.

  1. Fold a sheet of brown construction paper in half.
  2. Trace a football-shaped cookie cutter onto one side, with the top of the football lining up with the fold.
  3. Cut out the shape from both sides, creating a half-fold card.
  4. Glue small pieces of string on the front to make the football laces.
  5. Cut out a single sheet of white paper using the cookie cutter as a guide.
  6. Write the party information in green (or team colors) on the white football shape.
  7. Glue the white football on the inside of the card.

After the glue has dried, have kids put the invitations into envelopes purchased at a party supply store. Seal, stamp, and send them on their way to the guests.

Crafty Invites for Adults

Adults with a crafty thumb can make their own football party invitations, too. Use football scrapbook page ideas to get started. Consider making a pop up card where the player springs out or a rubber stamp card with some great football graphics. An awesome invite often means that an awesome party will follow, so get guests excited about the football party with a creative invite.

Football Party Invitation Wording

An invitation should have all the essential party information, like date, time, place, and reason for the party. Include other pertinent information, like "wear clothes for a flag football game following the pro game" or "bring a dish to share." Be sure to include some fun invitation wording that plays on the sport itself, such as:

  • "Hut one, hut two, hut three . . . time to party!"
  • "The quarterback shuffle just isn't the same without you, so put on your cleats for a party with the Mitchells."
  • "The Richardsons are hosting a Punt-Return Potluck!"
  • "V-I-C-T-O-R-Y, that's our party's battle cry."

A number of football cheers are suitable for invitation wording. Simply replace team colors or mascot with the team everyone is rooting for at the party. Using partial cheers is another way to start an invitation off with energy.
