Here's a simple way to spice up your Superbowl party - with Super Bowls!  Just cut open some footballs, and serve up your chips in style.  Lining your new footbowls with foil or cling wrap means super easy clean up and not having to worry about a weird rubber taste to your chips and guac.  So grab your ball, a knife, and some Sugru, hot glue, or whatever else you can find to help balance the bottoms, and you're ready to go.

Step 1: Materials

For this project, I used:
  • Plastic footballs
  • Matte knife
  • Sugru (hot glue would work just as well)
  • Plastic wrap (foil would work as well)
&quot;Once you've cut open your balls, it's a good idea to give them a thorough wash.&quot;<br>Agreed !<br>
If you wanted something more &quot;permanent&quot; than saran wrap, consider using a finish for providing a food safe surface on wood or gourds. I've used this permanent finish for creating salad or fruit bowls on pyro-engraved gourds. Then you wouldn't have to worry about plastic flavor or toxins leaching into food! (And safe for handwashing!)
awwww man I had the exact same idea :P
Great idea. Mini-footballs would be cute, too, scattered around the room, filled with m &amp; m's in team colors--or lined and filled with guacamole which is everybody's favorite color!
Great idea! I'm heading out to a thrift store to buy a few today. Thanks!
Very cute scooch! A great way to use those footballs that won't keep air anymore. :)
