Lesson 98-Sad, But True

Earlier this when I was planning for our Superbowl party I came across this
Ok, technically this isn't what I found.  I can't find what I found anymore.  But it's close enough!
I really liked it.  Cause it's true.  It sums up my marriage.  I wanted one for my house.  So I made one.
I started with a plain tray from Hobby Lobby, green, yellow stickers, white paper, yellow paper, and Mod Podge.

I painted two coats of green paint on the tray.  

Once in was dry I used Mod Podge to glue white cardstock strips resembling a football field (5 vertical and 2 horizontal).  

While it dried I stenciled letters on to  yellow cardstock to spell our "We interrupt this marriage to bring you football season".  This is the part where all you cool kids with a Cricut (or the like) will end up with cooler versions than mine.  The little letters ended up doing my head in, so I used yellow letter stickers instead.
Once my 'football field' and letters were in place, I covered the whole thing in a layer of Mod Podge.  On the outside of the tray I put some football stickers, cause I had 'em and they fit.  
 It now resides on our coffee table.  
 I like it.  But I'll be glad when I'm the coolest thing about Sunday afternoons again!  And if you're one of the cool kids that uses a Cricut, I'd love to see how it turns out!!!


  1. This is so true! I think I need to make one for football, and one for nascar, and one for soccer world cup, and one for oh I should stop there lol! Visiting from The girl creative's new friend friday.

  2. That is so funny and cute! Looks great, I don't think it would look any better even if you did have the Cricut.
