GIMME A C-O-O-Z-I-E

so...with the big game coming up...thought i'd get on the football and make a little sports themed craftie...for some reason...astroturf immediately came to mind...hee hee...astrotuf...i love that word...because it's like you're cussing...but not really...oops...need to focus...

anywho...made a trip to lowes and got the 'turf...now...i could only find a ginormous rug...i'm talking like 16' by 19'...and that's feet not inches...so...it goes without saying...that you'll be seeing other artificial grass projects...since i now have a buttload of the stuff!...

 
so...you want the play by play on how to do one up?...well...let's get started!...

you'll need...some 'turf...a beer or pop (yes...i say pop) can...or...if you'll be serving up bottles...then one of those...glue gun...and a piece of paper to make a pattern...

 
measure around the can...

 
cut your paper to the size you're wanting...it seems that 3" inches by 8 1/2" inches fit most cans...

 
take your pattern and trace on the turf...then cut 'er out!...

 
run a thin line of hot glue down one edge...

 
bring the other side around...and press firmly to get a good bond...

 
see...all nice and neat...

 
now...just slip on the can!...

 
you can slap a football on there if you want...i used my cricut and the wrap it up cartridge to cut this little guy out...also...used my cuttlebug and mesh texture embossing folder to get all the little footballish bumpies...

 
when i say can...you say cooozie...can!...coozie!...can!...coozie!....

****check out my linky party directory on the sidebar to see where i'm linking to this week!...

Great idea! If you've ever had the "pleasure" of falling on an AstroTurf football field, you'd definitely want to cuss. It doesn't give at all like real grass.
