I was so excited to share our Couples Olympics party the other day that I didn’t get a chance to write out the tutorials for how to make the inexpensive decorations I had. So, today I thought I’d share some Couples Olympics Party DIY Tutorials including how to make the medals, trophy, and signs. I’m also including the Couples Olympics logo I designed so that you can use and print it out as you need it for your own party.
Giant Olympics Logo
- Cardboard Box
- 2 Bowls in 2 Sizes (or other circular object to trace)
- Multimedia Scissors
- Paint (Blue, Yellow, Black, Green, and Red)
- Paint Brushes
- Hot Glue and Glue Gun
I made this out of cardboard because it’s sturdy and I plan to keep it for future Couples Olympics parties. Can you believe I have a bin dedicated to it in the garage?? Anyway, the instructions are pretty self-explanatory. I traced two different sized bowls, cut them out, and painted it. I cut one slit in each ring so that they will interlink and hot glues them together. I can easily disassemble them to store and glue them again in the same spot for the next year.
DIY Couples Olympics Medals
The cheap party store medals are perfect for this. Re-size and print and cut out the Couples Olympics logo on cardstock and glue it to the top of the plastic medal. It is OK if the plastic medal is not flat or smooth. Allow the glue to dry. Place it on a flat surface and slowly add the 3 dimensional Mod Podge under and over the logo. Gently smooth out any bubbles with the tip of the bottle. Allow it to dry for a minimum of three hours.
Couples Olympics Trophy
This trophy is passed on to the new winning couple each year. I made this one last year. Here are the instructions on how to make it.
Couples Olympics Signs
Couples Olympics Official Seal
If you get as crazy as I did and send out a welcome packet invitation, I printed out the Couples Olympics Committee logo I made on adhesive paper and punched them out with a circle punch.
In case you missed them:
…And in case you are wondering, we skipped 2014 because we had it in December of 2013 and January of 2015!
