DIY CHALLENGE: December Glitter

Need a break from the holiday madness? Our December DIY Challenge is the perfect excuse to escape to your craft room (or kitchen table) for an afternoon of making. There’s something so therapeutic about sitting down with a simple craft project and a tasty snack. Invite a friend to join you and make something together!

Each month we ( will choose a theme, and you get to run with it, then share what you make. You can stick strictly to the theme, or do something totally unexpected. Your creation is sure to inspire someone else, taking this creative community to the next level!

Check out what everyone came up with last month’s theme, Herbs & Spices here.

Share Your Project!

To share your project, email with the following info:
• at least one photo of the finished piece (shots of your process are also welcome!)
• a little bit about yourself & where you’re from
• how you got from the theme to your final product
• links to your social media/blog/website (optional)

We will post our top 10 favorite submissions on the blog at the end of the month + award PRIZES!

We have a confession to make: we LOVE glitter! And nothing says ‘holiday’ quite like the sparkle of a handmade glittered ornament or edible glitter cupcake! You can create something using your favorite glitter, or use ‘glitter’ as a theme or inspiration for your project.

Any and all materials and mediums are encouraged! This challenge is open to ALL AGES, so don’t be afraid to get your kids involved too. The challenge officially begins today, December 1, 2014 and ends on December 28, 2014. We will post our top 10 favorite projects + announce the award winners on December 29th. Have fun and happy crafting!

Don’t forget to share your projects with everyone on Instagram using #diycraftchallenge.

Invite your friends!

This is the perfect opportunity to host a craft night with your friends! Take photos of everyone’s creations and send them to us! Here is a button you can display on your website/blog to let your people know what you are up to.
