DIY Soccer Crafts for the Summer

DIY Soccer Crafts for the Summer

As fun as it can be to get outside during the summer months, sometimes the heat becomes too much to bear. Sometimes it’s not even the heat that drives us inside, but the rainy thunderstorms that have been taking over our summer weekends. If you’re a soccer lover who needs a quick break from the outdoors or you’ve found yourself stuck inside for some time, turn your love for the sport into a new activity.

Here are six easy DIY soccer-themed crafts that you can try out this summer:


World Cup Flag Garland

This summer doubles as a celebration for the Women’s FIFA World Cup. Celebrate your favorite nations that you’ll be cheering on with some homemade décor to spread around your house or even outside. With only a small amount of items needed to put this craft together, it’s inexpensive and looks great!

Soccer Ball Pinata

The perfect DIY craft to build inside then take outside. Make your pinata look like your own personal soccer ball, and stuff it with your favorite treats! Once you have completed it, instead of hitting it with a stick like a traditional pinata, you can kick it like a proper soccer ball! Made out of paper mâché, be ready to make a mess with this one.


DIY Tie Dye Soccer Jersey

One of the most fun DIY things to make in the summertime is a tie dye t-shirt. For our soccer fans out there, if you’ve got an old jersey or a t-shirt you can turn into one, tie dye it to make it your own! Once you’re done, you could use a fabric marker to put your number and team logo of choice on the front and back.


Homemade FIFA World Cup Trophy

If you’re up for the challenge, then this craft’s going to be the one for you. This DIY World Cup Trophy made from construction paper is easy to fold, and looks fantastic put on display. After each game, you can even have your friends sign it to make it more personal!

DIY Soccer Washer Necklaces

If you’ve got the time on your hands and you want something that you and your team can enjoy, these washer necklaces are for you.

They are super easy to make, and will last longer than most other crafts!
