AROSC Trophy Plate holder

Let's say you win yourself one of AROSC's shiny trophy plate things, and you want to be able to display it next to your other trophies without it becoming something that collects spare change or candy.

What do you do?

I took a wire clothes hangar that had a plastic/rubber-type coating on it, and (while the wife was out of the house) used a bench vise to bend it into a shape that would serve as a prop for the Alfa trophy plate.

Here's a picture. You'll see that some of the shape of the thing is preserved from when it was a clothes hangar.

The sweater will distract her from any parts I might clean in the dishwasher.
