Small towns. Friday night lights. Tailgating. Does this bring back any memories yet? Football season is upon us, and whether you’re tailgating at a local football game, a college football game, a professional football game, or homegating, nothing says “Touchdown!” like a fun DIY shirt.

Shh….don’t tell anyone, but I do not necessarily root for any specific football team, so instead of sporting a certain team logo, I’d rather go for a generic shirt. For just a few bucks and with a couple craft supplies, I made this one in under 10 minutes!

Use the cutting machine and software to design and cut the football and TOUCHDOWN. If you need help curving the text, see this post on How to Curve Text. If you would like to use my design, just CLICK HERE!

Cut the design out on the heat transfer vinyl, making sure to mirror the image before cutting. Remove all the excess vinyl that should not be ironed onto the shirt.

Place the shirt on an ironing board. Adhere the vinyl, with the plastic still attached, to the shirt in the proper place.

Place a thin piece of fabric over the plastic and iron, pressing and holding firmly in each spot for several minutes.

Remove the plastic, checking to make sure that each bit of the vinyl is firmly attached to the shirt. If not, place the thin material back over the vinyl and press the iron for a few seconds.

That’s it!

 

Grab your favorite treat, and it’s time for tailgating! For years, SNICKERS® has always been my favorite candy. I have serious nostalgia every time I taste one. Check out the football terms on the bars!

Living in a small town, our places to stop and grab items are few. We have a local CVS that is a great one stop shop for game day. Grab a SNICKERS®  coupon here!

I have always preferred traditional SNICKERS®, but the SNICKERS® Crisper bars are tasty, too.

    Such a cute idea and smart too! I was at DFW this week and there was a Dallas Cowboys store across from my terminal. I was like, Oh I’ll get something for my husband… and then I saw the prices. This DIY shirt is a WAY smarter way to go :)
