How to Make Your Own Stanley Cup

    Step 1

    Place the base bucket upside down on the ground.

    Step 2

    Glue the neck of the Stanley Cup to the base using a hot glue gun or super glue. Apply glue to the rim of the bowl-shaped plastic storage container. Put the plastic storage container upside-down on top of the center of the base.

    Step 3

    Glue the plastic party bowl to the assembly. Put a liberal amount of glue on the bottom of the plastic party bowl and set it firmly on top of the neck of the trophy. Allow the glue to dry.

    Step 4

    Wrap duct tape around the joints between the base, neck and party bowl to reinforce the trophy.

    Step 5

    Cover the whole assembly with tin foil or apply silver spray paint. Use glue to hold down loose ends of the tin foil. Allow the glue or spray paint to dry.


  • You can extend the neck of the trophy by stacking such progressively smaller cylindrical items as used hummus, ice cream, cream cheese, yogurt or whipped cream containers.


  • Do not drink out of your Stanley Cup if it has been spray painted. It may be toxic.

Things Needed

  • Large plastic bucket or a small cylindrical plastic trash can
  • Plastic bowl-shaped storage container
