DIY Contest Trophies

Your guests will appreciate receiving one of these fangtastic trophies as a contest prize at your party. Don't worry...making these trophies won't break the bank!

The possibilities are endless for these DIY Trophies.  We normally have a few games we play with our party guests every year.  True Blood Trivia, Who Said It, etc.  Search our site for more game ideas, we have quite a few that you will definitely want to try.  

Now, how do you make these fangtastic trophies that your guests will treasure more than an Oscar?  Head to your local Dollar Tree, Dollar General, or any place you like to shop to save a buck or two.  Grab some vases, candle holders, wine glasses etc.  You want to be able to glue 2 pieces together to give it an "award-winning" look.  Here are some that we found at our Dollar Tree, just $1 each!!!

Now, to create your trophies, glue one of your vases to a candlestick using super glue to ensure a good hold.  The candlestick will be the base (you can get as creative as you want and glue any 2 pieces together).  Once you have your 2 pieces glued and they have dried, get out some spray paint and completely cover your trophy with a coat or two to your liking.  We use black because it looks great with the embellisments and letters.  Let that dry completely. 

Next you want to finish it up with some paint and embellishments.  Use red glitter paint (or whatever color you like) to create the blood drip effect around the rim.

Head to the scrapbook section of your craft store and buy some peel and stick letters to add the text to your trophy.  These letters come in several colors and sizes and fonts.

Also at the scrapbook section, grab some rhinestone embellishments or whatever catches your eye.  These are usually peel and stick as well.
