Pasta Shell Football Craft

Next week starts football pre-season. While I don’t actually care for football (see my post ‘A Football Widow’s Rant’), my husband does & so does my daughter. She watched her first game at only one week old. I am not actually sure if it is the game that she enjoys or the fact that she gets to cuddle up with her father & eat chips & dip.


With football season quickly approaching, I thought that a football craft was essential.

As you all know, I am a huge fan of making pasta crafts. I especially love working with jumbo shells. They were perfect for what I had in mind.

This is an easy & quick craft. All you will need is jumbo pasta shells & brown & white paint.


Paint the jumbo pasta shells in brown & let them dry.


Use a skinny paint brush to paint white lines on the shells & give the appearance of a football.




Let your little footballs dry.

I thought Mai did a great job on her football. She painted in her lines very carefully.

I painted a football field for our tiny pasta footballs to sit on. Mai wanted to make pasta football players too. Maybe another day little girl.

  1. Cute craft, but think you know that I am not a fan of football here either, but my husband is as well. Didn’t realize it was back next weekend though and truly can’t believe it is football season indeed already.

    1. Ugh! I can’t believe it either. Next week is only pre-season, but still… Oh well, that means more day trips for Mai and mommy. Lol
