The FIFA World Cup – Russia 2018 starts today! If you’re looking for Free World Cup Printables you have come to the right place!
The host nation Russia will see 32 teams from around the world battle it out to win the World Cup 2018 Trophy on 15th July. Each country has to play three games in their group stage before making it the last 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and final. That means there are 64 games in total, including the third place-play off.
That is a lot of excuses to have friends and family over for fun, food, and football and to cheer your home nation on – or, if they didn’t qualify – your favourite team!
Free World Cup Printables
I live in a household that loves football, so naturally this event is going to be on our television screens a LOT until 15th July. It also gives us at least 3 chances to have a get together with family/friends to watch England play – and maybe more if they can get through the Group Stages!!

How to use: Fill in the details of the match – the two teams playing as well as the date and time (kick-off) of your party. Plus of course the party address and RSVP details.
World Cup Straw/Cocktail Stick Flags Download
How to use: These small flags can be used on cocktail sticks or straws. Just print and fold over, then use glue to attach both sides together, with the cocktail stick, or straw in-between.
How to use the food labels: Seems silly of me to give instructions for this printable, but simple print off as many as you need, fold in half along the line, and write in the name of the dish. I’ve typed in the above to demonstrate – the labels are blank. When entertaining, especially a buffet, I like to label up the food so guests know what is what, and I don’t have to keep explaining!
How to assemble popcorn/chip cones
Print as many as you require onto thin card or thick paper. Cut, then fold around into a cone. Secure with tape or glue. If using glue, hold together with a paper clip until the glue dries. These can be used to hold popcorn, potato chips, crisps, tortilla chips, even candy floss/cotton candy! I’ve updated the design a bit since I last used them, making them easier to stick together. You can see some made up cones here.
How to use the cupcake wrappers: Print off the required number of cupcake wrappers onto thin card or thick paper. Cut out and wrap around to form the case – secure with tape or glue. Place cupcake inside! See some of my other cupcake wrappers in action.
How to use the cupcake toppers:Print off the required number of cupcake toppers onto card or thick paper. Cut with scissors or with a 2″ circle punch. Attach a cocktail stick to the back of each topper and secure with tape. Place into cupcakes! If you need cupcake recipes, you can check out my archives. There are 35 different toppers in this set! 32 for each country taking part, one with a football, and two with the trophy.
How to use wrappers: If you are serving food that requires cutlery, I think it’s nice to make a napkin bundles with knives/forks/spoons wrapped in a napkin, and secured with one of my napkin wrappers. You can see an example on my blog here. Similarly, you could use them to wrap around bottles.
How to assemble popcorn boxes: Print off as many as you need, onto thin card and cut out. Flip over to the blank side, and you can judge where to score some lines to make folding easier: along the bottom flap tabs, the side flap, and along each edge, from point to point. Fold around, and use glue or tape to secure the sides first, then upend, to do the bottom flaps – I find tape easiest to secure these. If you using glue, you may want to add a paper clip to hold everything in place until the glue dries. Fill with popcorn or other dry snacks (chips/crisps; tortilla chips etc). You can see an example of my popcorn boxes here.
How to use the favour bag labels: These labels fold over to attach to a 10cm/4″ wide cellophane/plastic food bag. Print off as many as you need onto thin card, or thick paper. As well as the printable, you will need some other supplies – clear plastic food bags, and treats to put inside the bags. Fill the bags up, then fold the printed and cut labels. Staple on each side to secure in place.You can see examples of my other favour bags here.
The photo below shows the favors I made for my London 2012 Olympics Party. For the World Cup you could fill them with foil-covered chocolate footballs.
How to set up flags/pennants: To make strands of flags, you will need string or ribbon, a hole punch, and of course the printable. Print as many flags as you like and cut out. Punch holes in the top right and left corners and thread through onto ribbon or string.
How to make paper chains: Print as many pages of the paper chains as you need onto good quality paper – you don’t want the paper chains to be too flimsy – then carefully cut out. Take one of the strips and add a dab of glue on one end, and fold around to form a circle. This is the first loop in your chain. Now, slid another strip of paper into that loop, add a dab of glue on the end, and fold around to form a circle that is attached to the first loop. Continue going until you get the length of chain you desire.
I made these for the 2014 World Cup, so you can see in the photo below what they look like when printed and assembled.
