It’s time for our very first annual DIY Contest here on Ruffled. A few weeks ago you answered our survey, and DIY projects were nearly an unanimous request. So I took your request into consideration and decided to “meet somewhere in the middle”, bringing vintage and DIY together. This is a big moment for Ruffled – the first place winner will receive $500, and the second place winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to Wendy Mink Jewelry!

The theme for our DIY Contest is “Found Tucked Away and Used Today”. Participants must incorporate an old item into a do-it-yourself project. It can be a table centerpiece, an escort card display … I will leave it up to your creativity!

This DIY boutonniere project is a great example of vintage and DIY happily married.

To enter the contest:

  • Email me (amanda at ruffledblog.com) 4-8 images that are each at least 600 pixels wide;
  • A list of supplies with links to where to find them;
  • Step by step instructions

Everyone is welcome to participate. Brides, wedding planners, florists, crafsters… time to get your hands dirty! You can submit as many projects as you would like to increase your chances of winning. Entries close on March 25,2010. Entries will be posted in the order they were received. The best projects will be chosen and posted. Voting will begin March 29,2010.

Sweet reminder: the winner will receive $500, and the second place winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to Wendy Mink Jewelry!

Have fun and good luck!
