Craft Challenge #105 - Super Ugly to Super Awesome 5, Dec 1 - 8, 2014

It's Time to Enter!!

The entry period is Dec 1 - Dec 8, 2014.

To post your entry, please start a new topic for it.  Click NEW TOPIC on this board to post your entry! Smiley

Entries must be posted by Dec 8 11:59:59 PDT 2014.

If you are a new member, and cannot post images yet, please just post a direct link to your image(s) in your post.  A friendly neighborhood Moderator will come along and update your post to embed the image(s) for you.

Your challenge this month is to spend $20 or less at a thrift store and buy something super ugly, tacky or otherwise abominable and revamp it into something totally awesome.  You must take at least one photo of the item in its original state, so we can see both the before and the after.  Your purchase can be a piece of artwork, clothing, figurine, statue, platter, furniture -- whatever!  You decide.  You can purchase more than one item at the thrift store as long as your total is $20 or less, and your items somehow come together in the same theme of the project.  If you're not located in the U.S., you can spend the equivalent of $20 USD in your own currency.

Additional Rules and Details:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Nov 5 - Dec 8 2014) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • On Dec 1 2014, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Dec 1 to Dec 8 11:59:59 PDT 2014.  No sooner.  No later.  Do not post your project elsewhere on Craftster.
  • Voting will happen from Dec 9 - 16 2014.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month -- in our January newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • Enter only ONE project.  Your entry can have multiple components to it.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.


It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster, or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project. Smiley


At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner (US or non-US) will get:

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and a prize from us at Craftster.org -- any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

Winner announced!

Our winning entry was created by patty_o_furniture! Her entry titled, Smores Marshmallows. Inside Out is a clever take on a campfire treat! Marshmallows with graham crackers and chocolate cut into bite size squares and then put on a stick and roasted. YUM! Check out the winning entry here.
