Upcycle THIS: August Craft Challenge: Clothespins!


Welcome to our 8th Monthly Upcycle THIS! Craft Challenge, an exciting regular occurrence here at the Etsy Fort Worth blog. I would like to introduce you to your Special Secret Craft Ingredient for August!

For this month's craft challenge project, you can use any other supplies you want along with as many clothespins as you feel like. You can also choose any material and size you want; there are a few different options out there. Don't forget to document your steps along the way with pics and notes and be sure to take a 'before' photo as well as the 'after' one! (I would also recommend including a list of supplies and materials at the top of your post).

Write your tutorial or how-to blog post on your own blog and add the link to the widget at the bottom of this post by Wednesday August 29th at 11:59pm at the latest. (Voting will begin at 12:00am August 30th, at which point the link-up widget will block new entries). We'll blast out the link to this post to all our social networks, and you do the same - we all encourage everyone we know to vote! Winners will be chosen by the number of votes (voting closes at 11:59pm September 5th) and will be announced with a featured blog post the following week which is all about you, with links to your shop, blog, etc. and your logo badge will be stationed on our sidebar for a whole month!
**Plus, as we just started last month, we are also throwing in a $25 virtual PayPal gift card!**

We hope you are inspired to create by this crafty challenge, and that you'll have tons of fun in the process! Thanks for reading; now go forth, and GET CRAFTY!
