Craft Challenge #66 – Inspired by Nature - Due Sep 1 - 8

We have a TIE!
Congrats to schizo319 and thesunandtheturtle for their tie for first place!! Smiley

“Falling Leaves Tray” by schizo319 is a gorgeous creation from a stoneware clay slab slumped and applied with leaves.“Natural pendant made with northern forest treasures” by thesunandtheturtle is an amazing pendant made from a variety of materials found in the forest!

It's time to vote!  Vote now through September 16, 2011.
Scroll up to vote!  You must be logged in to vote.

09/01/11 - It's time to enter!  Enter now through September 8, 2011.
To enter, post your project as a NEW TOPIC here:

Believe it or not, autumn is right around the corner (for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, that is Wink)!  Thinking of the upcoming seasonal change motivated us to create a nature-inspired challenge.

Your challenge this month is to create a project that is inspired by nature!  Your entry can utilize any craft materials and techniques of your choosing, as long as your project is obviously inspired by nature in some way.  Maybe you'll decide to use materials and supplies only found in nature.  Maybe you'll choose you'd just like to feature a nature theme!  It's entirely up to you how nature will inspire you for this challenge.

Craftsters have created lots of amazing nature projects that inspired by nature!  Here are just a few to get your creative gears turning:

Tiny Nature Number Book
Mother Nature's Message
Clover Necklace and Nature Bracelet
Sewing with Nature Bag
Carved Nature Stamps


  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Aug 1- Sep 8, 2011).  Projects created before this timeframe will not be removed from the entry board, but they will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Post your craft during the period of Sep 1 - Sep 8 2011.  No sooner.  No later.  On Sep 1 2011 there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Sep 9 - 16 2011.
  • Enter only ONE project.  Your entry can have multiple components to it.


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!

I don't think there was a folder made yet for challenge 65, I keep checking back but I can't find it? It could just be me though I wouldn't be surprised Cheesy

Totally into this one.  I started mine today.  I'm excited...my first challenge. Smiley

Why haven't I seen these challenges before? I saw this last night and made a thingy that I think is so cute I don't know if I can wait a month to show it off. Perhaps it'll take a month to finish completely.
