Spray Painted Father's Day Trophy DIY:


Step 1: Select a trophy. I found this porcelain one at a craft store. You can find them online (see supplies listed below), or shop for vintage plastic, porcelain, or metal ones at vintage shops. I don't recommend spray painting an antique trophy as it can diminish it's value, but for an old but not antique trophy go for it!

Step 2: Spray paint the trophy in the color you want. I felt like Dad needed a happy teal color. Make sure the spray paint you choose needs to work with the surface of the trophy you chose. You may need a couple of coats to perfectly cover the surface. Let dry in between each coat.

Step 3: Now for the award sentiment. Choose an award you want to give to Dad. Then spell it out with scrapbooking alphabet stickers (you could also cut a phrase from vinyl). Choose letters that work well with the surface area of your trophy. I used a 3/4" foam sticker set with my 8" trophy. It worked perfectly. Stickers with a little more pliability work better than stiff stickers. Make sure the letters are centered and aligned.

Now for the fun part! Fill the trophy with a treat Dad might enjoy. I used sour gummy worms. Dad likes them here at our house (and I don't so there's no chance of stealing them before the big day). You could also include small wrapped gifts, photos of the kids, or special messages from the kids. You can use whatever you choose.

Keep this craft in mind for any person that deserves an award. Personalizing and adding color to the trophies makes them more fun. Try a birthday, an anniversary, a retirement, a new baby, etc. So many ways you can spray paint and alter a trophy.
