Believe me when I say I am 100% the LEAST crafty person on this earth. I’m not creative and ideas do not transfer well from my brain to my hands. If something can be arranged haphazardly into a collage then I’m all about it. If it requires measuring or preciseness in any way… Well, I’m out. Luckily, this run bib shadow box craft is literally the easiest craft I’ve ever attempted and therefore resulted in success. Honestly, it’s not very original either, but then again, neither am I. #basicbitch
I’m an extremely sentimental person. Like… EXTREMELY. I tend to suffer from a bit of FOMO, so when I do anything remotely cool I want to remember it forever. I went through a major purge before we moved this summer and I found my very first “Key to the World” from my first Disney trip… IN 2001! I’m THAT kind of sentimental.
Anyway, if you are like me, you’ve probably saved the bib from every run you’ve participated in. Maybe they are tucked away in a drawer somewhere and you keep telling yourself you’ll pull them out and display them somehow. That’s exactly what I did — enter the shadow box!
You Will Need:
-A large shadow box (mine is 17×21)
-A box of straight pins
-Various bibs, medals, and other race memorabilia
What You Do:
1-Cover back of shadow box in HeatSheet and secure with pins
2-Arrange bibs and medals in a collage fashion and secure with pins
3-Close the shadow box and admire your awesomeness
The great thing about a craft like this is that it can be updated and changed as your heart desires. Run more races? Add more bibs. Super awesome hardware you want to display? Pin that baby down. So easy, so fast, and (for me) so motivational! Now, let’s see how long it will sit in the floor of the workout room before I can convince my husband to hang it for me. 🙂 (We’re going on one week and five days, by the way.)
