there are so many bad party supplies out there. so i decided i would start an occasional series where i show you how to fix them up and make them worthy of your bash. a, party supply hack if you will. so let's start with these shiny faux gold trophies! i love trophies. especially the ceramic ones like this used as home decor. but how perfect could they be for favors or prizes this summer? and it's so simple to spruce them up.
cheap trophies, spray paint, done.
i gave mine 2 quick coats to get a nice opaque white finish. and if you are planning a 4th of july party (or any party for that matter), i highly suggest using these to award prizes if you will have games. i think the only game we'll be playing around here on the 4th is beer pong... but that deserves a trophy right?
i stuffed each one with an airplant, but you can fill yours with whatever your heart desires. tie on a first, second, or third place tag in patriotic colors to finish them off.
you'll be ready in no time to host an awards ceremony :)
