DIY CHALLENGE: November Herbs & Spices

Need a creative boost? Join our new DIY Craft Challenge! 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 Fall Leaves 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!

November marks the beginning of the holiday season. It’s a time of delicious smells filling hour home from cookies baking in the oven, soup simmering on the stove, and your favorite fall scented candle burning on the windowsill. We’ve chosen Herbs & Spices as our November theme and we hope to inspire both cooking and crafting. You can use actual herbs & spices, or use the ‘herbs & spices’ as a theme 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 tomorrow, November 1, 2014 and ends on November 25, 2014. We will post our top 10 favorite projects + announce the award winners on November 26th. Have fun and happy crafting!

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