As the leaves start to change colors and the crisp autumn breeze fills the air, we know football season is upon us once again. It’s a time for friends and family to come together, whether it’s cheering for your favorite team at tailgating events, hosting in-home watch parties, or attending your little one’s sports games. There’s no better way to celebrate the football season than by channeling our creativity into a winning project. And what better teammate in creativity than Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint? In this blog, we’ll explore some fantastic football-themed projects using the wide array of Dixie Belle Paint Products, perfect for any of your teammates who want to infuse their passion for the game into their DIY endeavors. 


Football-Inspired Mason Jar Candle Holders

Transform and upcycle plain old mason jars into charming candle holders with a football twist. Paint the jars in your hometown team’s colors using Dixie Belle’s Silk All-In-One Silk Mineral Paint. Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint in Pine Cone makes the perfect brown hue of a leathered football. Once dry, add Dixie Belle’s Flat Clear Coat to keep your design intact and smooth. To really score big, add football laces or helmet decals using stencils or freehand painting. Place tea lights or votive candles inside for some cozy Friday Night Lights.

Football-Themed Throw Pillows

Add a touch of football fandom to your living room or game day hangout space with football-themed throw pillows. For your starting lineup, you’ll need to purchase plain pillow covers or better yet, use fabric you have on hand. Next, use Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint in your go-to team’s colors and some stencil or hand-paint footballs, goalposts, or your team’s logo onto the fabric. Once the paint is dry, you’ll want to pass it off to the Top Coat to secure your design. Finally, stuff the pillows, grab a drink, and enjoy the game in a comfortable style.

Tailgate Cooler Makeover

Give your tailgate cooler a personalized makeover with Dixie Belle Silk All-In-One Mineral Paint. Paint the exterior in your team’s colors and seal with Dixie Belle’s Terra Seal Matte for a waterproof top coat that will protect your artwork season after season.  Next, add some flair! Grab your fine-line Artist Brushes and your team color Dixie Belle Paint to spell out a game-day phrase like “Go Tigers” or “Touchdown Time. Use Mylar Stencils to add more details, or freehand paint some football motifs like footballs, helmets, or your team’s name. The top of the cooler is a great spot for a chalkboard finish to keep track of the game score or jot down fun messages for fellow tailgaters. You can even paint the cooler’s interior with a fun pop of color.
