DIY Race Medal Holder

When I first started running races, I was collecting a ton of medals and race bibs and had no where to put them. I didn't want to throw the bibs away. I wanted to put them somewhere that I could look at and remind myself to be proud, even on days when I was feeling everything but that. I looked up medal holders online, and found my way over to easy. At the time, I didn't want to spend the money on it, and no shops had quite what I was envisioning. So I turned to Michaels to create exactly what I wanted.

What You'll Need: 

Wooden Board (your choice size and shape)
Chalkboard Paint
Paintbrush
Chalk
Gold Wire
Gold Safety Pins
Gold Hooks

Directions:

1. Start by painting your board with the chalkboard paint. Do one side first - when it dries after first coating, paint a second coat over. Once dry, flip it over and repeat.

2. Let dry, once dry completely, push the hooks into the wood (use a hammer if necessary). You may need to measure the distance between the two according to your race bibs. Add more hooks to the bottom for your medals. String the gold wire from the hook on the left to the right side. 

3. Add a quote or saying to the top using your chalk.

4. Add bibs and medals, hang up, and be proud - but don't ever stop adding those bibs and medals.
