March is here! Are you ready for spring AND some basketball? I know I’ll be cheering on my favorite team from Kansas! If you’re planning to watch some basketball games with your family or friends, I’m going to show you how to make this great DIY Tabletop Basketball Game for shooting some hoops while watching the games. Plus, I’ll show you how to create some fun basketball cookies to serve for snacking.
Supplies you’ll need:
- 7/8″ wood dowel (found in hobby wood dept at Home Depot)
- PVC conduit support strap / bracket (found in electrical section at Home Depot)
- 2″ C clamp
- Black spray paint
- White foamboard
- Red marker
- White plastic canvas / mesh sheet (from hobby store like Michaels)
- Hot glue gun
- Duct tape
- Cheez-It Crunch’d for “basketballs”
Supplies: wood dowel, pvc conduit strap / bracket, c clamp
Saw off a 10″ piece of wood dowel and lightly sand.
Spray paint dowel and bracket.
Affix the bottom of the dowel into the bracket and close (use some duct tape to keep the bracket clamped onto the wood dowel.
Cut a 3″ x 5″ piece of foamboard and draw red edging and shoot box.
Cut a 8″ x 2″ piece of white mesh for the net.
Hot glue together the mesh to create about a 2″ diameter basket (I overlapped 10 squares).
Center and hot glue the net to the foamboard at the bottom of the shooting square.
Affix the bracket and dowel to the table with the C clamp then tape the foamboard onto the wood dowel.
Gather your snacks and use the Cheez-It Crunch’d (with 100% real cheese!), as your basketballs for your tabletop basketball game.
Fun for the whole family shooting hoops with this DIY tabletop basketball game!
Add some great basketball cookies to your basketball party snack food table!
I made royal icing using this recipe which used egg whites, vanilla extract, and confectioner’s sugar. Then added some Wilton orange gel food color. Used an icing bag to flood the cookies and the premade black bag icing for the stripes.
What do you think? Will you try to make the DIY tabletop basketball game or perhaps some basketball cookies for your next party?
