Variation On Custom Tall Sports Jersey Centerpiece For Your Bar Mitzvah Or Party

Tall T-Shirt Sports Theme Centerpiece

Tall T-Shirt Sports Theme Centerpiece

As you know our tall sports jersey centerpiece kits have been a favorite for a while. However, they can be pricey when you add an authentic sports jersey to the cost of the centerpiece. We came up with this variation using jersey or t-shirt patterns made from rigid polystyrene. We paint the polystyrene with water based paint. Then we hand detailed and customized with the team’s name on the front as well as the player’s name on the back.

We use our clear, flexible plastic tubes glued to styrofoam for rigidity, that elevate the patterns some 16″ to 24″.   This way the centerpiece does not obstruct the view of guests sitting around the tables. We filled the tubes with gold shred as a highlight.  The styrofoam base bottom is ribboned and sprayed.  Paper poofs act in a dual role, adding decorative colors as well as hiding the construction. This base of this custom sports theme centerpiece was accented with a mock player card as well as a team pennant.

For do it yourselfers using real t-shirts or sports jerseys, there is a ready made t-shirt card stock pattern available in hobby stores or through our site.  Or you can easily make a pattern and cut them yourself.

Each kit readily supports the weight of a t-shirt or a jersey when properly assembled using our simple step by step guidelines.  If the room’s ceiling is tall enough, you can also add decorative party balloons.

If you purchase a kit from us we can even ‘slit’ the top base for an easier fit when adding a card board pattern. Follow the link for more information on sports jersey centerpiece kits.

    Hi. I’d like to know if I could purchase just the t-shirt tops and then do a base myself that will go with my color scheme. I’d like to do several different college Lacrosse teams for each table. Is that possible and do you have a price for each shirt top.

    Thanks,
    Bonnie

    • Hello again, Bonnie, The tops (large T-shirt cut outs) are available in your team colors for $25.00 each. They are t-shirt size and again they can have the team name, but not the team logo because of trademark infringement. Thanks for asking.
