DIY Game Day Beverage Tub
Win big with this decorated beverage tub that provides entertainment as well as cold drinks. And when the game’s over? Just take the decorations off and save them for next year!
2 feet of artificial turf
White duct tape
White painter’s tape
Yellow spray paint
Goal post (see parts, below)
Step 1: Attach all PVC pipes to create your goal post.
Step 2: Spray-paint goal post in a well-ventilated area and allow to dry for at least an hour.
Step 3: Wrap artificial turf around beverage tub and cut off excess.
Step 4: Create a border along the top of your artificial turf using white duct tape. Fold half the duct tape over onto the front, and fold the other half onto the back.
Step 5: Secure artificial turf to beverage tub using painter’s tape, overlapping the duct tape.
Step 6: Once your turf is on straight, add your “50-yard line” with white duct tape. To create the numbers, print out a “5” and a “0,” tape over the paper with white duct tape, and cut out the numbers following the outline of the printed number on the back of the paper. Then attach numbers to artificial turf using painter’s tape. You can also add yard lines with pieces of white painter’s tape.
Step 7: Attach your “goal post” to the back of the drinks tub using painter’s tape. Then fill your tub with ice and drinks and enjoy!
