Trophy crafts make fun projects for home or school. Children can give trophy crafts to parents, such as trophies that read "World's Greatest Mom." Craft trophies can also be given to friends and family you felt deserved an award in a sporting event or other competition but didn't receive one in hopes of making them smile. Try making a variety of craft trophies with different sayings, humorous and otherwise, to sell at craft fairs and flea markets.

    Thermacol Sheet Trophy

  1. 1

    Cut any shape you desire out of a thermacol sheet with a cutter tool. This will be the upper half of your trophy.

  2. 2

    Cut a block out of the thermacol sheet to create the trophy base.

  3. 3

    Cut a small piece of paper in the shape of the thermacol sheet block and write the "winner's" name on it and any other information you would like to include. Glue it to the front of the trophy base.

  4. 4

    Decorate the upper half of your trophy as desired or leave as is. Use push pins to attach the trophy base to the upper half.

    Paper Cup Trophy

  1. 1

    Paint a paper cup in desired colours and write desired message on the front, such as "World's Greatest Sister" in paint or markers. Allow to dry.

  2. 2

    Paint a toilet paper roll or half of a toilet paper roll in desired colours. Free-hand or trace a circular base and handles for the trophy on a cereal box or similar type of paper. Paint the base and the handles and allow all pieces to dry.

  3. 3

    Glue the trophy together. Glue the toilet paper roll upright to the circular base and glue the handles to the sides of the paper cup. Allow to dry before gluing the toilet paper roll base to the bottom of the cup. Add any additional embellishments, such as glitter or stickers once the trophy has dried completely.

Tips and warnings

  • Make award medals using cardboard (such as cereal boxes), tin foil and ribbon.
