The Michigan Wolverines have historically been a powerhouse in the NCAA. Known for a successful football program and “The Big House,” the Wolverines have also won national championships in basketball, ice hockey and baseball, just to name a few. Fans of the Wolverines range from alumni all the way to people who happen to love the tradition of Michigan athletics. Here is how to decorate a room with a Michigan Wolverines theme.
Things You'll Need
- Newspaper articles
- Picture frame
Decorate the room in the colors of the Michigan Wolverines. The maize and blue of Michigan are quite possibly the two most famous colors in all of college sports. Incorporate both of these colors in the wall paint, bedding, furniture, curtains and carpeting.
Paint the Michigan “M” on the walls of the room. The simple letter “M” is synonymous with Michigan. If you paint a wall maize, use blue for the “M” on that particular wall or vice versa. Either way is acceptable.
Place the phrase “Go Blue!” somewhere in the room with either paint or cut-out wallpaper. Those two simple words make up the trademark phrase of the Michigan Wolverines. Anytime anybody says the words “Go Blue,” there is no doubt that person is referring to the University of Michigan.
Find a large picture or poster of Michigan Stadium and hang it on the wall of the room. “The Big House” as it is known is the home of the Michigan football team and is arguably the most famous football stadium in the country. You can find different posters that have different views of the stadium either at team shops or online.
Commemorate the infamous rivalry between the University of Michigan and Ohio State. This football rivalry has often been called the greatest rivalry in all of American sports. Find newspaper articles of a game in which the Wolverines defeated Ohio State and use the clippings to create a collage. Anti-OSU memorabilia can likely be found in shops in Ann Arbor or online; place those objects in the room.
Pay homage to Michigan athletic programs other than football in your room. The Wolverines have won national championships in baseball, ice hockey, basketball, women's field hockey, men's golf and gymnastics, along with other sports. Find pictures or other apparel of these national championship teams and place them throughout the room to showcase the dominance of the Wolverines.
Honor the Michigan fight song, “Hail to the Victors,” which is probably the most well known fight song in all of college sports. Print out the lyrics to the song, frame the page and hang it on your wall. Alternatively, find an object that plays the fight song, such as a clock.
