Be inspired by your favourite team colours and create themed Christmas crackers, gift wrap and decorations.
We decided to use the colours of Manchester United as our inspiration, a bold red and white theme, and created 6 craft ideas for Christmas, parties and celebrations.
You could be inspired by several teams or even a league, to create the perfect themed look for the football crazy people in your life.
