In a short time and with few materials, you can build a stylish World Cup table from four footballs, a wooden board and green paint. The balls serve as table feet. In our photo tutorial, which we received with the friendly support of tesa®, the current official tournament ball is used. Cheaper and, above all, even more personal it will be with your own footballs from the kicker time. Who lives in a shared flat or has children who like to play football, certainly gets the necessary footballs in a few minutes together.

Saw out places for football table legs

On this table you use pencil and plate to draw four circles for the later table legs. In order for the footballs to fit in, the diameter should be approx. 16 cm. Then drill a hole for the first cut and then saw off the circles with a jigsaw. Ideally, the circles should be sawn out at a 45 degree angle, so that the footballs later "snaps" optimally into the holes.
