Whether it's a chilly set of bleachers at an early morning water polo game or the wooden benches by the baseball field, parental cheering can be tough on the tushy. You'll be a lot more comfortable sitting atop this cushy little DIY stadium seat. This easy, inexpensive project can be whipped up in an afternoon and customized to tout your loyalties with college-print fabrics. It makes a nice addition to your stash of tailgating party supplies too, especially if you use the same fabric for your tailgate napkins.
Here's what you'll need:
- Two square or rectangular foam pads; this example uses foam that is 1 by 15 by 17 inches.
- Two pieces of college-print fabric and two of a contrasting print, 2 1/2 inches wider and 2 1/2 inches longer than the foam pads.
- Grommets and a grommet setting tool
- 1 yard of 1/2-inch webbing or grosgrain ribbon in a coordinating color
