Super Bowl Crafts and Snacks

So apparently the Super Bowl is happening soon.  I know this because I received a Super Bowl party invitation.  Every year my friend and her husband invite dozens of people over for a huge Super Bowl party.  They eat, drink and watch the game.  Every year I send my regrets – “Sorry, I’m unable to attend.  Have fun!”

The Super Bowl Stinks

My friends are huge Super Bowl fans.  Not me.  I don’t like football…at all.  It’s long and it’s boring.  I don’t even know who’s playing, and to be honest, I really don’t care.  But, I know not everyone feels the same as I do.  That’s clearly obvious by the ratings it gets.  And of course the ridiculous amounts of money corporations are willing to spend to advertise during Super Bowl commercials – precisely because of such high ratings.

The Super Bowl’s Great

Trying to look on the bright side of things, there is one thing I can appreciate about the Super Bowl – the creative, innovative and let’s face it, sometimes down right delicious football-themed crafts and treats it inspires people to make.  I did a little research this week, and here are my top 5 football-inspired crafts and snacks.
