My slowly growing vintage trophy collection made me look at these inexpensive plastic diving trophy tops in a whole new light. With dwindling square inches in my space, flipping these divers into removable tie and scarf hooks keep things organized and out in the open.
Inspiration With a Side of Guacamole
In the lobby of a favorite Mexican restaurant called Rosa Mexicano near New York City’s Lincoln Center, you’ll be greeted by a fountain wall of ceramic divers. I stored that design idea in the back of my mind until now.
Trophy Hook DIY Hack
Spray paint the trophy heads a glossy white or in this case, a shiny turquoise. For some reason the color makes them look like sculpture. Cut a round piece of cardboard to finish off the open base of the trophy head. Glue the cardboard to the base and let dry.
Glue a flathole keyhole picture hanger onto the trophy base. A simple flathead screw in the wall clicks into the picture hanger.
Your new diver hooks hold scarves, ties, necklaces, and lightweight handbags with a sense of cool panache. My friend installed a collection of these on a bathroom wall, painted in white to hold guest hand towels. Love it!
