Watercolor Football Banner in your team's color or logo for game day!
It’s football season!! Growing up in Knoxville, TN you either loved or loathed college football. The University of Tennessee was THE place to be on game day, and if you couldn’t be there, you were glued to the television watching every play and yelling at the screen.

Now that I’m an adult and living outside of my hometown, I don’t catch every game, but I do watch when I remember it’s on. And I am still definitely a UT fan all the way! So I thought it would be fun to make a trendy watercolor banner because who says football can’t be trendy, too?

You will need Americana Multi-Surface Paints in the following colors:
Brown Sugar
Turf Green
Cotton Ball
Pumpkin Patch

You will also need an inexpensive watercolor tablet.

Repeat this 2-3 times to thin out the paint. Brush a few strokes onto the watercolor paper then dip brush in water and rub over the paint on the tablet. It will further thin it out and spread over the tablet. Do this for each the brown, green, and orange (or other team color!).

Once the green is dry, wet the white paint as you did the other colors previously. Draw straight lines across the paper.

On the back of the orange watercolor sheet, draw school logo or symbol then cut out.

Cut the green watercolor sheet into 6 rectangles to represent the football field.

Punch holes as needed to string up the banner.
