Hi there! I'm Madigan, the writer behind Madigan Made. I'm excited Jess invited me here today!

If you are interested in simple crafts, recipes and home decor, then you may enjoy visiting me over at Madigan Made. I love easy and chic ideas and love to share them. (Oh, and I also love my hubby and puppy... and a little dark chocolate and coffee!)

Today I want to share an idea for wall art that involves sports tickets.


I'm a huge fan of personalized art for my home.
Anyone can pick up a print from a home store. I prefer to make it "mine". 

Well, this art project is very personal to  my husband. It is for our sports-themed basement.

Ever since I have known my husband, he saved all his golf score cards and any ticket to a sporting event. He knew that some day he would want to display them, maybe in a media room or basement. I came up with these frames as a way to meet that wish.

These tickets just prove that you can frame anything and it could be art. (if that is what you want to call this!)

Want to make one of these yourself? Well, first you will need:
  • A sports fanatic husband (who loves to golf and is often invited to sporting events by friends and family)
  • Many, many, many sports tickets and golf score cards (Mr. Madigan collected them for 10+ years.)
  • Adhesive (scrapbook glue dots/tabs would work well)
  • Large empty picture frames (I like the ones from IKEA. They are large and come with mats already.)
  • Poster board
First, cut your poster board to about the size of the glass.
Open the frame and using a pencil, draw an outline of the mat opening onto the poster board. Use that line as a guide for laying out your tickets.
You could lay out your pattern before adhering anything. But I just start in one corner and work my way across. Use the adhesive to secure the corners of the ticket to the poster board.
Try to alternate the type and look of each ticket and avoid too many of one kind next to each other. Carefully overlap the tickets when needed. You may need to trim off some of the tickets (I also trimmed down some of the golf score cards, too).
After you've covered the entire mat area, pop it in the frame. Could not be easier!
I love this project because once Mr. Madigan collects enough tickets to fill another one, I can just go and buy another frame at IKEA.
I slowly made these displays over the past several years.  I made six total frames for our basement.
Here are four more of them below.

I bet you could do this with other types of tickets...
For your music lover: Concert tickets?
For your theater or movie buff: show tickets?
For your roller coaster fanatic: Amusement park tickets?
It really is a great way to save and display a memory.
If you like this project, come visit me over at Madigan Made! You can also find me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or StumbleUpon. I enjoy sharing 'behind the scenes' info and other great ideas I find.



Thanks, Jess, for letting me share this project!
(Hope you are enjoying your time with your little one!)

Thanks again Madigan for helping out and stopping by!   Didn’t you just love that project?   What a great way to keep mementos.  I think it would be a fun way to organize summer vacay memories too!   What would you make out of it?  I wanna know!
