Updated July 20, 2017

Trophies are given at award ceremonies, sporting events and home celebrations. A trophy can be expensive when you place a special order and add personalisation such as engraving. Creating your own trophy is cost-effective because you can personalise it just the way you want. Children can make these trophies, with the help of an adult, to give as gifts to someone special.

Spray-paint the base with two coats of the gold paint. Allow to dry.

Draw the shape for the upper half of the trophy on the thermocol sheet. Cut the shape out using a precision craft knife.

Spray-paint two coats of the gold paint on the upper half of the trophy. Allow to dry.
