Fearless Friday, Tide Pride Snack Bowl

 

You know the South is crazy for football

In my household it’s Alabama all the way

 

 

 

 

Today we’re going to customize a snack bowl for game day

 

 

 

 

I found this snack helmet at Target on clearance last winter and snatched it up

you can get one on Amazon here

or Ebay here

 

 

 

 

It came with NFL decals but I wanted to paint it for Bama

 

 

 

 

Flat square brushes make quick work of painting block letters and checks

 

 

 

 

 

I painted my signature Alabama elephant on each side of the helmet

 

 

 

 

You can see the step by step painting tutorial here and below

 

 

 

 

Next I painted large gray dots that will become elephant footprints later

 

 

 

 

A football is painted on the top center of the  lid and ALA down either side

 

 

 

 

 

 

Final details of dots, eyes, tusks

 

 

 

 

Now this helmet is ready for game day snacking!

 

 

 

 

 

HH, his sister and HHjr graduated from Alabama and

the whole family is full of Tide Pride!

 

 

 

 

We started an annual tradition, Labor Day family weekend at the beach with all our children and grands…  18 of us will be gathering tomorrow afternoon to watch the first game of the season

 

 

 

 

 

This snack helmet will see lots of action!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Be Fearless and customize something for your favorite team!

 

Juicy Details

I got my helmet at Target last winter when it went on clearance, but you can get one on Amazon here or Ebay here

I used glossy craft acrylic paint

After paint dries and cures {sets for several days} it will be durable, however it can be scratched and be careful to clean with a damp cloth and never submerge in water

If you paint on glass or ceramics, use paint made for glass painting and it can be cured in the oven to make it waterproof
