It’s World Cup time!! And since you’re going to need a whole lot of snacks to get through four weeks of football, today we’re going to show you how to make this epic World Cup snack stadium!!!
It’s MUCH easier to put together than you’d think; the whole thing is stuck together with VELCRO® Brand Heavy Duty Coins and tape to make it structurally sound (we here at the VELCRO® Brand take our snacks seriously) and overall it took about an hour to make.
As you can see, our stadium holds a LOT of snacks (we used 22 boxes and containers altogether) so it’s perfect for anyone hosting a World Cup party. Fancy giving it a go? Read on to find out what to do.
What you’ll need to make a snack stadium
- One large cardboard box (flattened)
- 2 grass table runners (like this one)
- Around 20 boxes and containers (we used these ones)
- VELCRO® Brand Heavy Duty Stick On Coins
- VELCRO® Brand Heavy Duty Stick On Tape
- World Cup bunting
- LOTS of snacks!
What to do
You won’t believe how easy it is to make a football stadium for snacks! Start by flattening a large cardboard box and laying it out on the table.
Then stick two grass table runners down the middle with VELCRO® Brand Heavy Duty Stick On Coins.
Next, press the grass down onto the cardboard to secure it in place and don’t worry if you don’t get the positioning quite right the first time. It’s stuck on with VELCRO® Brand coins so it’s easily adjustable!
Next, take each cardboard file holder and cut it down to about three quarters of its size. You’ll need around 20 file holders so to speed up this process, it’s a good idea to get someone to help you with this step!
Each cardboard file holder should look like this when you open it up.
Once each file holder is cut to size, stick one side of a VELCRO® Brand Heavy Duty Stick On Coin on the bottom of each one and stick the other side to the cardboard base.
Now start sticking your file holders all the way around your cardboard base. To create the look of seating stands, we also stuck a stationery holder to each side with some VELCRO® Brand Heavy Duty Stick On Tape. It’s important to use heavy duty fasteners to make sure the whole thing doesn’t fall apart when you try to move it!
When all your boxes and contains are stuck together, the structure of your snack stadium should look something like this!
Now for the fun part! Fill your snack stadium with LOADS of snacks!!!
We’d recommend picking treats that are easy to pick at like crisps, tortilla chips, mini chocolate bars, popcorn, etc. Watching the World Cup is thirsty work so don’t forget to add some drinks too!
And if you’ve got some flag bunting lying around, drape it around the edges to decorate.
And that’s it! Your epic World Cup snack stadium is complete!
