Haunted Halloween Decor Challenge - Due Nov 1 - 8 2012

It's Time to Enter!

The entry period is Nov 1 - 8, 2012.

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 Nov 8 11:59:59 PDT 2012.

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.

It's no secret that we love Halloween here on Craftster!  What's better than Halloween on Craftster?  A Halloween challenge on Craftster! Grin  For this challenge, we're teaming up with Elmers for a crafted Halloween!

Your challenge is to create some type of Halloween home decor.  You can create something for inside your home or even something for outdoor decorating/yard art.  Maybe you'll carve an epic pumpkin to decorate your porch.  Perhaps you'll create a spooky graveyard for trick or treaters to visit in your yard.  Or maybe, just maybe, you'll transform the inside of your home into a haunted house!  It's up to you.  Just make it crafted and make it spooky fun!

Here are a few specifics for this challenge:
  • The decor you enter must have handmade components.
  • It must be decor you are making for this year (2012), and not photos of decor from past years.


  • Enter decor crafted for Halloween 2012 only.  Projects created before this timeframe will not be removed from the entry board, but they will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).
  • Post your craft during the period of Nov 1 - Nov 8 2012. No sooner.  No later.  On Nov 1, there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Nov 9 - Nov 18 2012.
  • The winner will be officially announced on our first business Monday of the next month -- in our December 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.
  • 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.

About Elmer's:
For more than sixty years, Elmers Products, Inc., has been providing creative adhesive solutions that support project success and turn ideas into reality. By continuing to develop innovative new products, Elmers has become the trusted brand when it comes to fueling creativity and providing outstanding product performance in the classroom, at home, in the workshop and at the craft table. At Elmers, we inspire people to create, build and learn for life.


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

(1) a super craft supply pack from Elmer's (valued at $50!)
(2) their project in the Featured Projects area
(3) their project in the Craftster Blog
(4) and a prize from us at Craftster.org -- any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

Fun! Is any type of decoration OK, even if it's relatively small?

Would it be OK to enter a project that was made two weeks ago, but hasn't been posted here, or do we need to make something between now and then? Just askin'.  Smiley

the project I'm trying to put together for the ugly to awesome challenge will be Halloween decor.  Am I assuming correctly that it would be ineligible for the Elmer's challenge?
