I swear. I have this obsession with old trophies that I can’t quite figure out. Whenever I see them in the thrift stores I keep thinking what a waste. They just sit there, A record of someone’s glory day…. long gone. I personally have a few for speech team in high school and one for getting the worst score in a fireman’s golf tournament.As you can tell,I am quite the athlete.They must have a second life!And I swear I am going to keep making things with them until I find out what it is!!!Today’s it’s place card holders. Wouldn’t it be fun to use them for a sports-based party ? Have fun with these Upcycling Old Trophies to Make Place Card Table Settings.
The nice thing about trophies is they are really easy to take apart.They have a threaded screw set into the figurine most of the time.It’s as easy as unscrewing a nut at the base.
I had some small ,wood birch rounds and just drilled a hole the same size as the screw base into the top of the round.
I added a drop of glue and screwed it in. It was that simple. Just like when I made this fun ugly sweater award.
I kept them their original gold color. I went with a black and gold theme and added a hand-lettered tag on a bit of ribbon.
Two of the ones I found were for soccer.
Sue was volleyball but looks like something is coming at her and she’s scared.
These are so much fun and are also a cue keep sake for someone to take home.
