Droopy Daisy Crafting Duels – February Edition!

The February Droopy Daisy Crafting Duels begin now!

To participate, please follow the rules as detailed below. If you have any questions, please email droopydaisy@gmail.com. I will post a FAQ if necessary or clarify as we go along – since this is our first one, be gentle with me 🙂

Required Materials

Twine – You must incorporate twine into your design in some fashion – no more than three yards.

Hardware store – You are required to use at least five items but no more than twenty items from a hardware store that cost less than $5 total for all items (regular price without coupon or sale or tax). Items do not have to be the same.

Dollar store – You are required to use two items from Dollar Tree, Dollar General, or other $1 store and each item must not exceed $1 in cost. Items do not have to be the same.

The maximum amount spend on purchasing Required Materials should not exceed $10.

Discretionary Materials

Discretionary materials include the list below. You can use these items freely at your discretion. They are not required or expected but available for you to use if necessary for your design.

Adhesives & glue – including all types of glues and adhesive items and washi tapes.

Tools – including all types of scissors, pliers, cutters, etc. that can be used to create your design but are not a part of the final product.

Paper – plain or kraft type papers are acceptable. Printed paper may not be used unless specified otherwise in contest.

Thread & string – threads and strings can be used sparingly but cannot represent a major focus of your finished product.

Buttons – up to thirty buttons may be used in your finished design.

Ribbon – ribbon is not allowed unless otherwise specified.

Paint – paint is allowed, this includes any type of paint (spray, chalk, craft, etc.)

Naturally available materials – rocks, shells, branches, etc. are cleared for use as long as they were obtained in nature (honor system here). Please use no more than five individual items.

Ink/Pens/Markers/Etc – all writing instruments are allowed but cannot be part of the final design. Stamp ink is acceptable but cannot be used with a commercially available stamp.
