My niece is an Irish Dance (if you couldn’t yet tell!); and being an Irish Dancer who competes a lot, she has accumulated a hefty collection of medals and trophies. If you have a child (or maybe yourself) who has a similar collection, you very well know that while exciting to earn, these items pose a bit of a decorating “challenge,” often looking cluttered and messy!
Need proof? Here is my niece’s wall, pre-makeover!
And here is mine and my sister’s solution to the medal
Much better, don’t you think? It was super easy too…let me show you what we did!
While she didn’t want to get rid of any of them, my niece wasn’t adamant about having her medals on display (fortunate for us!). When I saw this big glass jar at HomeGoods, I knew we had our solution!
This baby is big (and was only $15) – all the medals fit perfectly, and there is room to grow! And because my sister and I can’t leave anything alone, we added a vinyl border and Irish Dancer to coordinate it with the room!
The jar is now on display on my niece’s bedside table, and she can take them out an reminisce any time she wants!
What a quick and easy solution! Now, if only we could come up with a solution for those darn trophies (that she wouldn’t give up!). Any ideas out there???
Have a great day!
