first, separate your numbers and letters to make sure you have enough of what you need. you’ll need to spell out ‘touchdown’ twice and you’ll need two 1s, two 2s, two 3s, two fours, one five, and nine zeros. the zeros are the tricky ones, I actually had to buy three packs of felt numbers just to get my last zero (so annoying) and of course, I had to go to three different craft stores to find all three packs. apparently white felt sticky letters and numbers are a hot commodity. I also picked up felt footballs to use in place of ‘O’s in ‘touchdown’.
I started by putting the ‘touchdown’ letters on first. I realized that the width of my turf wasn’t wide enough for all the letters and had to trim the width of these letters in order to get them all to fit, so if you need to do that – don’t fret, it was easy. from there, I measured the remaining turf space and divided by ten. using your measurements, mark the spots for yard lines and set your yard line numbers on the turf for placing.
cut each piece of tape for the yard lines individually and long enough so that you can hot glue the ends to the back of the astroturf later. the tape won’t stick on its own, so you’ll want to stick all the yard lines and numbers on the turf and then turn it over to hot glue the edges of the tape to the back.
