DIY Tailgate Ideas
DIY Tailgate Banner – Hang a banner or two on the back of your car. It looks so cool in just a few minutes!
Decorating your vehicle is easy with a little creativity. You can make an easy banner in your team’s colors. Trace a triangular shape onto construction paper and cut them out. Then, use a hole cutter and string to bring it all together.
Make a Sign – Make a fun but simple sign for your tailgate using poster board or construction paper. To put an extra fun twist, use a clipboard or dry erase board. I love writing or printing out a menu of everything I’m offering at my parties. It adds a nice element and let’s your party attendees know what’s cooking.
Easy Tailgate Food – Chicken wings, hot dogs and burgers are must-haves for tailgating festivities. Find them all in the freezer section at your Family Dollar. These pre-seasoned wings were a hit and all you need to do is bake them. For easy food transport, check out the selection of foil pans that come with a convenient cover. They also have 30 packs of foam trays for a great low price. Another score!
For a clever and tasty bite, grab some canned chili and shredded cheese and fill bread bowls. Not only are they tasty, but they’re easy to grab and go.
Snack time: Munchies are a must. Pick up game day favorites like popcorn and pretzels and set up easy-to-grab baggies. Head over to the party section at Family Dollar to score packs of these bags in your favorite colors for a really low price.
Desserts – Send your team off with a smile. It’s easy to customize sweet treats for your party guests. Make cupcakes or cookies and customize frosting with food coloring to match your team’s colors. I purchased pre-made sugar cookies and added the frosting on top. This only takes about 10 minutes to do and you have a super cute addition to your party.
Don’t forget to plan for some extra fun. My favorite pick this season is Silly String. Grab your team colors and get to it!
