Transform Your Tailgate With These DIY Hacks
Team Jell-O Shots
Hosting a tailgate party is primarily about preparing the tastiest, classic pre-game foods: Burgers, Buffalo wings, ribs, chili, pulled pork, and potato salad are all tailgate essentials. Once you’ve planned out and prepared all the food, drinks and decorations come next. There’s no better way to get everybody in the party spirit than by fueling your feast with chilled drinks, dressing up in your team colors, and by adding a football twist to your whole tailgate. This year, it’s time to transform your tailgate into an even more spectacular party, without too much effort at all, with these simple DIY hacks.
Edible Flag Decorations
Frozen Water Balloons
Show your team pride by filling your cooler with frozen water balloons in your team colors, and use them instead of ice to keep your drinks cool throughout the day.
Muffin Tin Tray
Avoid dropping or spilling any drinks by simply using a muffin tin as a perfect bottle-sized tray to transport drinks and make sure they stay upright.
Paper Towel Hanger
Toolboxes, with all their different, spacious sections, are a key piece of tailgating equipment. Use all the different slots for different items, so that everything from flatware, to trash bags, to seasonings, to grilling tools are all easily accessible, can be found without a problem, and can remain organized.
Obviously, you’ll need a cooler for your drinks and uncooked food, but you’ll probably also want a warmer to keep the cooked food warm throughout the day. You don’t need to invest in some fancy new equipment to achieve this, as your cooler can easily be turned into a warmer. Simply wrap a few garden bricks in aluminum foil, and place them in the oven for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees F. Line the bottom and lower sides of your cooler with damp tea towels. Remove the bricks from the oven, and place them on the tea towels. They’ll stay warm in a sealed cooler for at least 6 hours.
