Medal Display

Monday: Yoga stretching (1 hour)
Tuesday: 4 easy miles
Wednesday: 30 minutes elliptical and 30 minutes abs and core workout

Lately, I have been trying to figure out a tasteful way to display my race metals in our home. My husband is a huge sports fan and both of us have sport-affiliated memorabilia. I wanted to display our accomplishments and autographed items in our office. I have been looking around for different ideas of how or where to hang my medals. Last week I came across a website that sparked my creativity.

The website is called Frame Your Event (here). They specialize in running related gifts and medal displays. I like to think that I am a pretty crafty individual, so as I am browsing through the website I am thinking to myself, I could probably make this. It got me thinking, I'm going to make my own!  Here were a few ideas I really liked:

Aren't these great? I love the idea of a quoted plaque. I would love to make my own display using some of the quotes I love from my favorite athletes. In the Fall, I love more than anything to stay inside bundled up, sipping tea and crafting all day long. I am so looking forward to Fall, can you tell? I plan to create my own version of this display and will do a tutorial on it. 

How do you display your awards and accomplishments?
