    And we’re here to help you out.

    Due to some recent changes on the site, we are no longer able to publish stand-alone videos and other forms of incomplete posts. In order to be published live on the site, Instructables must consist of the following things:

    - Multiple steps showing how you made your project

    - Written instructions in each step

    - Your own original images

    Beyond making your Instructable simply publishable, this guide ( explains what is required to have your Instructables featured by our site editors. It’s very helpful, and definitely worth checking out.

    We would love to review your project again after you have made the necessary edits, and we will publish your project if it is eligible.
