8 Clever Ways to Upcycle Trophies ...


From repurposing tuna cans, we move to fun ways to upcycle trophies.

I am referring to trophies that you win at soccer games or bowling matches, not the animal type ones that you hang on your wall.

We have here 8 ways to repurpose trophies and all of the ideas are easy to do.

They're perfect for parties or giving your home a quirky new DIY decor.

Hope you enjoy these craft ideas!

1. Bottle Toppers

Wine is already a very cheerful creation but with an added trophy topper, you will make the beverage even more amazing.

To upcycle trophies this way, you will need the top parts of the trophy and corks.

You will also need a drill to make a hole on your cork tops so that you will be able to attach the trophy parts.

2. Coat Rack

Here is one clever way to upcycle trophies.

For this particular DIY project, you will also be needing trophies with "human" tops.2

You will also require a long piece of wood, drill, clamp, nuts and washers, sandpaper, rags, and shellac.

The basic idea is to make use of the trophy tops as the hooks of your rack.

3. Vintage Centerpieces

Vintage Centerpieces

One cute way to upcycle trophies is to use them for storing or displaying other things.

Here, they serve as flower vases or wedding centerpieces.

You will need the cup types of trophies for this particular DIY idea.

The more vintage or tarnished the trophies, the better.

4. Paper Maché Vase

Paper Maché Vase

This idea is basically similar to the previous DIY I mentioned here but instead of displaying the tarnished trophy cup in all its vintage glory, you will be covering it with pretty paper.

You can do this if the trophy cup is not tarnished or vintage-y enough.

This is also useful if you can only find plastic trophies.
