I don’t know about you, but in this house, we are so excited for the Big Game. We love everything Football from college to the pros, we watch it all. Every year we host a big party at our house for the game and I love decorating for it. This year I decided to pull out my Cricut Maker and have some fun with felt. I am still so impressed by just how well the Cricut Maker cuts felt. I had this entire banner done in 10 minutes that is how easy it makes it!
Felt Football Banner
You will need:
- White Felt
- Brown Felt
- A Cricut Maker
- Hot Glue
If you want to make things really easy on yourself, you can find my cut files here.
Open Design Space and hit the New Project Button. Hit Images on the left hand side of Design Space and search for a Football. I used Image #M3AD9D from Life’s a Party. Resize your footballs to be the size you want them by clicking on the image and dragging the arrows in the bottom right corner of the image. My Footballs are 5.5 inches tall.

The machine will cut your football two different times. First is will cut your white felt, which is the background for your football and then it will cut the more complex brown felt. I cut two pieces of white felt to every football so that I could sandwich the twine in between the two, but you can simply and just do one if you want to.
After you have all of your pieces cut out and peeled off the mat (peel the footballs slowly, the thin areas can rip) hot glue the top of your football to the background color. After this is done, hot glue the twine to the back of the football. Here is where you can add an extra piece of felt over top of the twine and hot glue if you want to. As soon as you are done gluing, your banner is done and ready to hang!

The best part of this banner is that it folds down so small so you can save it and pull it out again next year! Check out some more amazing Cricut projects using felt below.
