    Default How Do you Display Your Trial/Test Ribbons and Trophies

    I think there has been a thread before on RTF, but I can't find it using search. Right now I have my retriever ribbons/awards earned stashed in plastic containers in storage due to the ongoing home remodel. I priced some display cases over the internet and could not believe the cost. I don't want to display every single item (hundreds of them), but would like to find an display ideas for a large wall in my office that I could possibly rotate items "in and out".

    If you have suggestions or ideas for an fairly inexpensive yet attractive method to display ribbons, etc. please share.. thank you!

    I have a handful on a glass shelf, but those are from titles. Many more are in boxes somewhere

    There was a really great thread and I vaguely remember some great ideas and beautiful, inexpensive displays...

    I just tried searching and wasn't successful.

    My wife took a corkboard and made a real nice display out of about 50 ribbons and allows me to keep on the wall in our bedroom. She got tired of them just sitting on my dresser. It was cheap and looks good. I started a smaller version after the big one filled up.

    I hope this will not be spam. I am not selling these....Yet.... I made my daughter a walnut plaque large enough to hang eight ribbons and a picture of her and her dog in the center. I have considered taking it to hunt tests and seeing if anyone would be interested in buying one, so I could justify buying enough wood( I'm not doing solid walnut again,$$$) to make some. Hopefully I won't get in trouble for asking here, anyone interested?

    My house came with a recessed book shelf with glass doors. Since you are remodeling why don't you put one in. THe color looks nice among the trophies.

    Lainee's shrine is awesome! I have seen it with my own eyes. Darla's shrine is just ribbons hung up around a goose and her 2 small trophies. LOL
