Easy DIY Soccer Medal Hanger

If my kids were identified by one sport, it would be soccer. They’ve collected trophies and medals over years of playing and have had no good place to display their achievements. I had intended on making a display of some sort a long time ago so this little DIY is long overdue.

With a handful of craft supplies and some little (maybe not so little) helping hands, my kids and I made these cute little medal hangers for less than $10 each.

You’ll need the following supplies:

With my Silhouette machine, I created designs for each hanger and cut them on permanent vinyl. If you don’t have a Silhouette machine or Cricut to custom make your own lettering, you can easily order something pre-cut on Amazon. Just be sure to order the lettering in the correct size so that it fits on your wood plank.

Once I weeded the vinyl, I applied each design directly onto a piece of wood plank using transfer tape.

After removing the transfer tape, each kiddo used craft paint to paint over their design and covered their wood plank entirely with a paint color of their choice.

Once the paint completely dried, we peeled off the design.

Using 100 grit sand paper, we sanded each wood plank in random places to give their designs a “worn” look. Once we were happy with the sanding, we went over the entire wood plank a final scrub with 400 grit sandpaper to finish it off.

Finally, we installed the small hooks along the bottom, evenly spaced out, and voila! This project was super quick and easy! (Note: the wood screws were longer than the thickness of the wood so I had to get hubby to cut down the screws once the hooks were installed.)
