How To Make A Field Goal Post
I have organized many football parties in the last seven years. From soccer party printables to soda can field goals and even a handmade soccer field, one thing they all have in common is my handmade soccer party decorations. And soccer party games, obviously.
Penalty Shoot Out (association Football)
Of all the soccer party decorations, this PVC goal I made for this game day party might be my favorite. It’s so easy to make and the perfect centerpiece—well, maybe the end piece—for any football party table.
They are so simple to make with just a few things you can pick up at your local hardware store. The instructions below make two field goal posts of the same size to place at either end of your table.
The beauty of this project is that you really only need PVC pieces and paint for this project. This is specifically what you’ll need to make field goals! Ask your local hardware store to cut the PVC pipe for you or get a set of PVC pipe cutters to cut at home!

I have included a picture with instructions below to show how to form a goal post shape with the parts from the supply list. You will only use two of the T-connectors in this step, not all four.
Start by spray painting the goal post pieces yellow. Once spray painted, stand up and let dry.

When all the paint is dry, add the black shirts to the bottom of the goal posts to make it easier to stop.
The goalposts should sit well on a flat surface with only the tees. If you are placing them on a not-so-flat surface, you can add a coaster or other flat surface to help level the poles to stop.
Here is a photo of the field goal posts in action. Aren’t they the perfect addition to this fun soccer party?

If using them on a non-flat surface, add a coaster or other flat item underneath for stabilization.

Below you will see how we build a fun LEGO goal post using basic bricks and then you will see the tutorial I found for making the paper football.
Start by making LEGO goal posts. I used basic LEGO bricks, floors and a plate. Check out the detailed images to make your own. The target should be just a couple of inches off the ground.
Put your fists on the table, point your index fingers towards each other so that the tips touch. Put your thumbs in the air. This gives you the approximate height of your LEGO goal.

I will have to say that neither my son nor I have great paper football skills, but we still have a lot of laughs. My husband is much better. My son and I enjoyed learning how to play paper football.
There are a few ways to hold the ball, as you will see below. The video above also goes over the different ways to hold it. My son found that the bottom path was the easiest for him. Make sure to tilt it back slightly! You can also turn it upside down.

The path below is my husband’s favorite way to play a paper soccer ball. It is a little more difficult for small children. We have a lot of fun with this screen-free activity. By the end, my son was also trying to carefully bounce the table balls through the goal posts. Listen, why not?

Yesterday I shared my game day party ideas and today I’m going to show you how I made the field goal post out of empty soda cans. These are simple and fun DIY football party decorations that can add a lot to the party.
First up, the DIY field goal post I made from empty soda cans. This was one of the easiest projects ever, and I love how it turned out at the party yesterday. This is how you do it.

Step 1: First, you will glue the soda cans together with hot glue. Be sure to press the cans into the hot glue so they stick well. And make sure the cans are free of any liquid so the glue sticks better. Glue the nine cans to the following stacks:
Step 2: Next, hot glue the stacks together to form a field goal post shape with the filled can at the bottom of the upright. The full can will act as your weight to keep the upright from falling. You can use the diagram below as a reference.
Step 3: Spray the entire mount with yellow spray paint. I recommend doing this outdoors or in a well-ventilated area, using a disposable sheet or tablecloth to stop and use clothes you don’t care about. When you’re done with the yellow spray paint, spray black paint on the bottom only.

Step 4: Allow the paint to dry completely and embellish as desired. I used pennants from a leftover soccer banner from yesterday’s soccer party. Just be careful not to handle the upright too much or it will break. And if it does, just hot glue the cans back together! That’s the beauty of using hot glue. And you are ready!
