In that last few years I have started running and participating in races. At each race I typically get a bib and a medal. The medals were starting to stack up and I had nowhere to display them. Scrolling through Pinterest (as I do all too frequently), I saw this idea from someone displaying karate belts.
I had one of these rods in my house already, but you can get one from IKEA for about $3.00 (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50072645/). I spray painted mine gold to match the other decor in the room. You could easily spray paint the rod to match any room.
I also purchased some S-hooks for about $3.00 (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70011397/). You could also use a curtain rod or any wall rod if you are not close to an IKEA.
This display was easy to put up and a great, inexpensive way to display my race items.
