I've always wondered what happens to trophies years after the excitement of their achievement has long gone. Do they get displayed on a dusty mantle in your parents home showing off your accomplishments? Or do they end up alone, discarded in thrift stores or just tossed in the trash? Well this DIY just might be the solution to giving them new life.

Even if you don't have your own collection of old trophies, there always seems to be plenty piling up at thrift stores. I never understood what purpose it would serve to buy someone else's trophies. What could you possible want them for? So you could imagine my jaw dropping when I came across this brilliant DIY based around upcycling them.

It's such a simple and inventive idea that I was really taken aback. Thanks to this Design Sponge DIY project there now is a reason to dust off those old memories and proudly display them in a new way. Go trophies! You have been redefined and get to be admired once again.
