DIY Goal Posts

GAME TIME!

We are getting ready for a birthday/super bowl party. I thought what better decoration than Goal Posts on our food table! I wanted an inexpensive decoration, because I am all about being thrifty. So we are at Home Depot – my new favorite store. And I walk buy this then PVC piping. PERFECT!!!!

So I pick up 4 pieces – 2 feet long, and I think they were ¾ inch. So I went over to the joints….And thankfully someone came up to me and told me I was looking in the wrong spot. So he gave me a two 90 degree joints, and a T one. They fit perfect. Then I ran back over and got yellow spray paint. The total was about $8 – and that was with a lot more spray paint than I will ever need. The piping was only like $5 I think.





So – I took one of the tubes, cut it in half. And then assembled it. Then my husband asked – how are you going to make it stand….hmmm…good question! So I got a 2x4 I had laying around, cut it in about 6 inch sections (3 of them), and drilled a hole with the only hole bit I could find. It fit – but was a little big – so I improvised, took a baby wipe, and put it on the bottom and put it in the whole – PERFECT!!!



Next week I’ll have pictures up of what it looks like as part of the party theme. But I wanted to get it out for all of those who want a cheap, cute decoration for your super bowl parties. I am going to hang a banner that says “Game Time” between the posts.
