Craft Challenge #12 - Kitschy Craft Contest - Due June 1 - June 5

The winner has been chosen! A huge congrats to PinkyK for her jaw-dropping project Kitschy Couture - Chanel "Inspired" Ensemble!



You can read a recap of this challenge on the Craftster Blog here: http://craftster.org/blog/?p=122

And you can see all the fabulous entries here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=237.0


In honor of my new book I recently held a "Kitschy Craft Contest" at the Maker Faire and it was so much fun that I decided to do something like it here! The way it worked at the Maker Faire was that I brought a ton of kooky craft supplies like doll faces, chenille chicks, pom poms, and tons of other tacky components. I also provided blank items to decorate like picture frames and bird houses and then people competed to make the best and most kitschy craft. You can see some pictures here.

Since I can't provide you all with surprise supplies like at the contest, the rules are going to be that your craft must incorporate AT LEAST THREE THINGS from the list below:

- chenille stems (aka pipe cleaners) (example)
- dried pasta/macaroni in any shapes (example)
- gimp (aka plastic lacing) (example)
- popsicle sticks (example)
- plastic easter grass (example)
- pom poms (example)
- potholder loops (aka jersey loops) (example)

You can make whatever you want and you can use other things not on the list above but you must use three things from the list above. All of the items can be found in a large craft store -- many in the kids craft supply section.

Official Rules:

  • Post your craft during the period of June 1 to June 5 2006. No sooner. No later.
    Instructions for exactly how to post your entry will be available on June 1.
  • Voting will happen from June 6 to June 12
  • Each participant can enter ONE project

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 prize winner will get:

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

And a copy of each of these books...
