2. If your home is accented with brown throw pillows, you're one step closer to football pillows. White duct tape will stick to the pillows and look just like the iconic laces.

3. When it comes to your big-game menu, even the hot dogs can be transformed into footballs. Simply arrange strips of white cheese over a chili-topped dog to bring the pig skin to life in edible fashion.
