Football is a big deal in my family. From my Grandparents, to my parents, to my sister and I we all have our own teams that we root for passionately. Since football season is in full swing my family has set out team gear in the living room. When a football game is on TV that takes precedence in my family’s house.
My family and I have good call/bad call signs that we love to use when watching a a football game. My goal is to inspire you to create a DIY football sign for game day.
It may come as no shock to you that my family tends to get involved when watching a game. When you watch a football game in person it can be easy to be involved. If you hear the crowd yelling something your natural instinct might be to join in with them. Even when we are watching a game from the comfort of our home we tend to yell at the referees. When something unpredictable happens we go crazy. I think that cheering for a team is one of the most appealing aspects of watching football.
I don’t know about you but I don’t do my best cheering on an empty stomach. A lot of people have foods that they consider game day essentials. I normally don’t have a go to snack that I have to have while I watch a game. However, I love themed snacks! I was thrilled when I found out that SNICKERS® came out with football themed bars. No the SNICKERS® aren’t shaped like footballs. The packaging has various football related terms like “offsides” and “fumbly.” I love that this tasty snack can serve as both a treat and decoration at the same time.
I found the football themed SNICKERS® bars at my local CVS. For me CVS is a one stop shop when it comes to getting prepared for celebrating game day. If you don’t see them in the candy aisle be sure to take a look below the cash register. That is where I found them at the store I visited. In addition to picking up the football themed bars I also grabbed a few SNICKERS® Crisper Bars to try out. If you haven’t tried the Crisper Bars I highly recommend them. My Dad and I liked them a lot.

When I was in high school my family attended a football game where we were given signs. One side said “Good Call” and the other side said “Bad Call”. We had so much fun holding up the signs to express how we felt about what we were seeing. After that we brought out the signs on every game day. They even traveled with us to other peoples houses. It turned out our friends loved using the signs too.
As of now I don’t know what happened to our old signs. Then I realized it’s okay if I can’t find the old ones. I have fallen in love with DIY projects and decided to make my own “good call” “bad call” signs. One of the main things I love about this project is that you can personalize the sign to fit your tastes. Maybe you want your favorite team name and logo on your sign.
What you need to make a DIY football sign for Game Day:
2 Sheets of Paper – Any color or design
Sheer Paper – This is an optional item. For my sign the sheer paper helped make the words more visible.
Stickers or a Marker to Write on the Signs
Paint Stick – To be used as a handle
Glue and/or Tape
Spray Paint – This is optional
*I added a few football die cuts to my signs which I really liked.
I took cardboard left over from something I bought at the grocery store to serve as the foundation for my sign. Then I spray painted a paint stick which I used as a handle. Once I attached the stick to the cardboard using tape, I was ready to add the grass paper.
Using glue I attached the paper to the card board. I folded the excess paper over the sides. Then I cut a second sheet of grass paper to fit perfectly on the other side. I then used clear double sided tape to attach a sheer paper that I laid over the grass paper. I cut the sheer paper so that it wouldn’t cover the whole sign. Then I added gold stickers to spell out “Good Call” on one side and “Bad Call” on the other. I wanted to add a little something extra so I added one football themed die cut to each side of the sign.
The signs are a lot of fun to use when you are watching any game. They are even more fun when your team plays a family or friends team. My Dad and my Grandpa love rival teams. So my Dad might hold up “Good Call” while my Grandpa is holding up “Bad Call”. A lot of laughs and good times can be had with these signs.
