Upcycled Craft Challenge Tutorial Roundup

Since January, we have had the pleasure of hosting a monthly Upcycle THIS! Craft Challenge here on the Etsy Fort Worth blog. The 2nd Wednesday of the month, we post a secret craft ingredient and give you a few weeks to come up with something craftabulous with it, write a how-to post and link it up here, where a winner is chosen by reader votes.

We have had so many fun and awesome entries that I wanted to share them all with you in one place, to celebrate and honor all the crafty cleverness we have collected over the last 6 months. Each photo is linked to the tutorial, so have fun clicking and get inspired!



This month's secret ingredient is popsicle sticks, and you can enter here, but hurry! Submissions close at 11:59pm on Wednesday, August 1st.
