Pallet Project

I have been looking for some inspiration out there, 
and decided I was going to make a medal plaque for myself.
(you could also make this to just hang pictures and necklaces)
Something that fits my style and my budget.
The prices I found online were anywhere between $30 to $50.
The price for my medal and bib holder was $0.
I know, surprising.
I used 

a piece of wood from a pallet.
Some L hooks that I already have 
(you can buy them for a dollar or two for the pack),
and two clips that I also already had.
So I used all my L hooks that I found in my toolbox and screwed them in.
I attached the clips with hot glue.
Yes, hot glue is awesome and yes, it does work.
On the back I attached two picture hooks.
And here it is on the wall.
I don't participate in a lot of races, but the one I have participated in,
were all races to found children's Hospitals and research.
I am still on the fence about writing something above the L hooks.
Something inspirational.

I am happy with my $0 project.

Stay Frugal, 
Daniela

Dearest Daniela,
Very lovely turn out for your once again genial up-cycling idea.
Did the funding for the Children's hospital go well through your long-trained for marathon? I sure hope so!

Hugs,
Mariette

That's a great idea! That's a great way to display things that you've worked hard for.

We did something similar with our ski bibs.
It is a great way to say "I did this" and remind one on a bad day. :-)
I like this idea!!

Daniella,
This is so neat!
and better because you spent 0
I think for me I would want more
hooks for all my jewelry.

I love the look and I love $0 projects the best. The signs I have been painting lately were all made with old wood, paint I had on hand.

Free and using up supplies is wonderful.
