Craft Challenge #43 - Drinking Straw Makeover - Due Oct 1 - Oct 5 2009

10/13/09 - Winner chosen!

Congrats to ohiodiygirl for her entry titled, Rainbow Brite in Straws!
Read all about her project here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=323238.0



Check out the blog featuring a few of the other entries as well!  http://www.craftster.org/blog/?p=4961

10/01/09 - The entry board is open!  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=431.0

Do you have a bundle of drinking straws tucked away in the back of a kitchen drawer?  Maybe you have just one lonesome straw leftover from a fast food adventure or juice box.  Whatever the case, your challenge this month is to craft one or more drinking straws into a fabulous and perhaps unexpected project.

A quick glance through the drinking straw tag might yield a little inspiration for you! Smiley  Oh, and look at these gems found via Google:  pendant lamp, flower stems, flexible lamp, lapel pin, jewelry, bird carving and mobiles.

Feel free to use traditional craft supplies glue, thread, etc. and even additional components in the project, but be sure to somehow feature the drinking straw(s).

Rules:

  • Post your craft during the period of Oct 1 - Oct 5 2009. No sooner.  No later.  On Oct 1 there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Oct 6 - Oct 12 2009.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original and 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, then just give credit to that project.

Prizes:

At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get...

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog

And this prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):

Any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

humm, this sounds Interesting! lol.
So, do they have to  be the standard plastic with the stripe drinking straws, or can they be the crazy loopy swirly ones too? lol Cheesy

Yay!  I might give this one a go.  I have a bunch of straws that I used to make paper leis for Lana's 1st Bday and since then they've been sitting there.  Time to think.  I just love these challenges!!!
