I know exactly what you are thinking right now. You want your own set of trophies. Right? I didn’t realize how much I needed these babies in my life until I saw them all standing next to each other. The other day I went to the Dollar Store and my eyes saw these beauties. Well, they were not this “beautiful” on the shelf (they were actually kinda ugly) but my brain knew exactly what they WERE going to look like. There are so many days I wish my brain would chill out for about 19 minutes and then there are days when I am saying, “thank you brain, thank you“. I wonder if my brain knows that I am proud of it?

I like to use wax plants for a project like this because they are very easy to manage. I get my wax plants from Wal-Mart but I am sure any nursery will have them. Another option is getting an air plant. Seriously. ANYONE can grow this. I mean, if you kill it then maybe you should inbox me.. hahah
You can also get all of the ingredients I used below, just click on the link and you can order everything from one spot: Air Plants Potting Mix Krylon Spray Paint (use whatever color you want) I used BLUE OCEAN BREEZE GLOSS Plastic Trophies (these are a little different but they will work the same way)
Go outside where you have room to breathe and spray away. Make sure you don’t spray next to people, vehicles, or your house. The overspray can really mess up some stuff. (yes, I truly experienced this many times)
I flipped over an old plastic pot that I had and sprayed these suckers. It’s easy using something like a pot because I was able to turn it around and spray other parts of the trophies.
This is what they will look like once you spray them and they are FULLY coated. make sure when you flip them back to the right side that you spray from the top. You want the inside to look coated as much as possible. Yay, we are almost done!
Halliluuuyerrrr we made it to the finish line. Boy, I’m pooped (hehe)
At least I won first place in the finger pushing contest! I think these are so precious and you can use them for so many things like: Weddings Birthdays Dinner parties A gift Graduation decor
You get it right? They are just amazing. Did you ever get a trophy? What was it for?
