Get out your crafting supplies, it’s a Crafting Speed Challenge brought to you by tophatter.com! You have one week to submit a craft project of yours. We’re not picky either, we love all types of crafting! Top prize is a $100 credit to buy some awesome items or supplies at tophatter.com.

To enter, get some great pictures of something you’ve made and post it as a photo Instructable. If you want to take it further and make a step-by-step that’s great, too.

Whether your crafted item is new or old it doesn’t matter. What does matter is that you made it and you want to share your creation. So get your pictures in, we can’t wait to see what you’ve made!

And as a bonus for Instructables members, you can get $10 off off the first purchase of $11 or more right here.

Contest is open to U.S. residents only. Entrants may enter more than once, but can only win one prize.

The Crafting Speed Challenge is closed.

Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Crafting Speed Challenge. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.
