Some ideas for unique trophy display shelves include making a zigzag pattern with the shelf boards, using accessories from a particular sport as part of the shelf and creating a customized shelf piece that has a meaningful text on it. Trophy display shelves have to emphasize the awards within them.
Sports accessories that can be utilized to decorate trophy display shelves are ice skates, baseballs, golf clubs, and pool cues. They can be installed on the underside of the shelf or used to bookend trophies. Text that may be etched or painted on the display shelf are quotes and sayings related to the awards or words and phrases that mean a lot to the awardee.
