Been There, Ran That

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Today definitely feels like Monday morning here, but hopefully it will pick up a little. I was busy yesterday, between Super Bowl commercials, making today's project.

We've had our race medals hanging off of doorknobs, and each time we walked by, they clanged together, quite annoyingly. So I set out to find a hanger for all of them. They start around 45 dollars for simple, non-personalized ones. Well, that just wasn't going to work for us!

This is what we came up with to show them off. (It's not quite done. I still need to find something just right to put in the middle, but that will come soon enough.)
 We took a 15x30 canvas (on sale!) and painted it. The "Been There, Ran That" is cut at 3.5" from the Birthday Cake Cartridge. The medals are on cup hooks set an inch apart, screwed into the canvas's frame, and the bib numbers are hanging off of cup hooks as well. (Pushed through the canvas and hot glued on the back to keep them in place.)
This is what it looks like hanging up on the wall. I'm pretty excited about it, especially since there is still room to add more in the future. And the best part is that the whole thing was under $15!
 Thanks for stopping by!
