Upcycling old toys and a corkboard to make a unique medal board
Upcycled Toys Frame: Instead of chucking away all those broken and orphaned toys, figures, and cars you find in your kid’s room, use them to make a unique toys frame medal board for their room.
As part of a recent bedroom makeover for my son Fergus, I made some cool stuff for his room such a giant papermache cactus and a denim pocket organizer. He had a load of sports medals that just hung from a hook on the end of his bed, so we decided that we should make a medal board to display them.
Fergus loves his new medals board as the toys frame is unique and he loves looking at the old figures he used to play with when younger, they evoke happy memories. Every time I go into the room I love looking at the old toys too.

Sticking the toys around the frame
We used our toys framed cork board to display Fergus’s sports medals, but you could obviously use it as a notice board or for photos. We not only love the look of the frame, but it’s great fun spotting old toys round the edge. This gives it a more personal and unique touch.
