DIY + cycling + trophy + jar

Do you ever wander thrift stores and see all those vintage trophies sitting around? We came across a few not too long ago. There were some pretty interesting ones! So much so, we decided to take them home and make something fun out of them!

My husband is a cyclist and we happened to come across a trophy with a bike. So, why not. Here is what you will need:

An old trophy 

Canning Jar with lid

Spray paint

Remove the topper (keep the hardware) from the trophy using a wrench. Drill a hole in the top of the canning jar lid (this is where the topper will be placed). Spray paint the lid any color you would like. White is always a safe color, but if you are feeling brave, a burst of color would be fun too! Once the paint has dried completely, put your topper through the drilled hole and secure it with the bolt on the inside of the lid. That’s it. So simple and now you have a fun little piece for your home!

My husband loves this jar. He keeps it on his bedside table with some vintage marbles inside. I don’t know what it is about it, but I am so happy we decided to keep these fun little trophies and make them into something useful once more!

What do you think about this simple DIY? I’ve also decided to include more pictures of the step by step process in the future. I realize this might be a little more helpful than just my instructions. What do you think? 

XOXO, Lidy
