As summer turns to fall, football season begins in the United States. Attend any game and chances are you’ll see someone on the sidelines or in the stands holding a football banner. These banners may include the team name or logo or show support for an individual player. You may want to make your own banner to bring to the big game. They can be easy to make. There are certain ideas to keep in mind when attempting to do this type of project.

Base Materials

The first step is deciding what type of material to use. Common household materials that can work include paper grocery bags, cardboard or pieces of paper. In order to make a banner, you’d have to tape these together. If you’d prefer a seamless look, try the back of wrapping paper, white rolled paper, rolled fabric or an old sheet.


Once the material is chosen, decide on how you’ll apply the logo and lettering. Use different coloured spray paint for an easy, fast application. If you have time, cutting out letters from felt or other fabric is a fairly simple task. Other options include acrylic paint, crayons or markers, or printing each letter from your computer. Painting or colouring the team logo can be simplified by sketching it out with pencil before adding the colour.


Banners are traditionally thought of as long pieces of material. This is not the only shape a banner can have. Using a different shape can help your banner stand out in the crowd. You could cut out triangles, decorate them and hang them from a string. Or make your banner in the shape of a football, helmet, jersey or other sports-related shape.
