- Prepare the walnut shell. The walnut shell can be used natural or painted.
- If a painted walnut shell is desired, use acyrlic paint to cover the walnut shell and let dry.

Football Theme Party
Flexibility is the name of the game with this craft. Simply use magic markers or Sharpies to custom color your nametags with your or your guests favorite team colors.
The walnut shell can be used as an half of shell or can be used whole. A paint pen works well to decorate the walnut shell.
How To Add Football Flags
For this version of the Walnut Shell Football Name Tag I added football toothpick flags on the back of the walnut. After gluing the walnut shell to the popsicle stick or craft stick I used a tiny piece of scrap styrofoam and glued the styrfoam under the back on the walnut.
I then speared the styrofoam with the football toothpick – easy! Gives another look to your name tag for game day.
Have fun! Anything goes and enjoy the game!
