Paid-Post-Icon-55pxGo the extra yard at your Home Bowl bash by making this DIY football field table cover, brought to you by Evite in partnership with Coca-Cola® and NABISCO.


Time: 1 hour

Level of Difficulty: Medium


  • Dining or buffet table
  • Artificial turf (available at home improvement stores)
  • Sharp heavy-duty scissors
  • Utility knife
  • White duct tape (available at home improvement or hardware stores)
  • Measuring tape
  • Black marker
  • White felt adhesive numbers (available at craft stores or online)


Step 1: Lay your artificial turf over your table and trim the edges.

Step 2: Use a utility knife to score a roll of white duct tape down the middle to create thinner strips of tape. Make sure to be careful when using a utility knife.

Step 3: Measure your table to find the halfway point and apply a thin piece of duct tape to the artificial turf to create the 50-yard line. (On a standard 6-foot table, the middle of your table will be at the 36-inch mark.)

Step 4: Measure from the 50-yard line to one end of the table and divide into 5 equal parts, marking with a black marker as you go. Repeat on the other side. (If your table is six feet, your marks will be at approximately 7 1/4 inches, 14 1/2 inches, 21 3/4 inches, 29 inches, 36 inches, 43 1/4 inches, 50 1/2 inches, 57 3/4 inches and 65 inches; 72 inches is the end of the table.)

Step 5: Apply 4 pieces of thin duct tape on either side of your 50-yard line to mark your remaining yard lines.

Tip: Use the measuring tape as a guide to ensure the lines are straight.

Step 6: Apply adhesive numbers to mark your yard lines (the yard lines should read 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10).


Now that your table is ready, set out your spread. Offer your Home Bowl guests a variety of options, including Coca-Cola® beverages and NABISCO snacks. You can even get Coca-Cola® bottles customized with your guests’ names at
