Duct tape was originally introduced during World War II as a way to make quick fixes like sealing dented canisters and repairing cracked windows. After the war came to an end, the color changed from green to gray and civilians started using it for repairing everything from attic holes to lawn mower engines. Now that companies like the Duck Brand have introduced the material in numerous colors and patterns, the tape is being used to make flowers, dresses, necklaces, wallets and more.

We’re thrilled to be teaming with Duck to launch a new category for The Craftys: Duct Tape Crafts. We’d love to see prom dresses, tuxedos, purses, bracelets — any cool and beautiful thing you make with that ultra durable craft material.
Plus, you can also enter to win $150 in Duck Tape, which is a lot of wallets and probably two to three dresses.

People craft for numerous reasons, but one of the biggest inspirations to make something is welcoming a new addition to the family. To celebrate those amazing things designed for small packages, The Craftys Awards and Red Heart Yarns are teaming up to launch a new category: Baby Crafts.

We expect to see some impressive projects when The Craftys open nominations on November 14, 2016, from platform booties to locomotive cribs. While many new items for babies are knitted and crocheted, we also know that new parents and grandparents build amazing nursery furniture, design spectacular home decor and sew beautiful outfits. Plus there are all the crafts made by sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
To get needle crafters inspired, Red Heart Yarns is giving away a $50 prize pack (which is a lot of material).
Here’s what’s included:
— 1 ball Irresistible
— 1 ball Gleam
— 1 ball Fashion Soft
— 1 ball Strata
