DIY Running Medal Display

Hey guys! Happy Friiiidaayyy! This week of work has gone way too slow and I’m so ready for a weekend!

Tomorrow I have a 15 mile long run for my marathon training. I will have to write a post about my training soon to keep you in the loop! I’m excited because I get to run with my cousin and aunt! I’ve been doing long runs on my own and it can get really boring.

Anyway, today’s post will include a project that I’ve been working on (for way too long!) that I finished this week.  It’s a DIY running medal display. It hangs my running medals and I think it looks pretty sweet!

DIY Running Medal Display

Note: This takes a little waiting for the paint to dry, but other than that it is easy peasy!

Supplies:

  • 1 pre-cut wood board (I found mine at Michaels)
  • Acrylic paint (I chose black and white)
  • Sand paper (if you mess up with painting like I did at first)
  • Sawtooth Hangers
  • Screw Hooks
  • Paint sponge and brushes
  • Hammer
  • Letter Stencils (optional)

Directions: Paint wood to desired color.  Let dry.  Use letter stencils to paint desired phrase (I chose “❤ Running”).  Let dry.  Place sawtooth hangers on the back and hammer gently until secure. Twist the screw hooks on the front (I just placed them straight across the front, but you can place them however you prefer). Hang on the wall and place your running medals on the hooks. Boom…DONE!

The cool thing about this project is that it’s way cheaper than buying a display online AND you can customize it on your own.

That’s all for now folks and have a spectacular weekend! 🙂

How do you display your running paraphernalia?  Have you made anything on your own to display running medals?
