My favorite football games in the NFL season are the playoffs. This DIY mini football helmet will add a fun decoration for your football party and can also be used to put on your drink so you will always know which one is yours. You can easily make a mini helmet out of household items and inexpensive things from the craft store. Make each one with a unique player number that you can put the helmet over your drink. They also can be used as fun bobblehead decorations for your favorite team.
