Exciting Changes at The DIY Club

by The DIY Club on January 23, 2011

DIY Club


The DIY Project Party Monthly Contest is a competitive monthly party in which DIY Club members (followers) link up quality DIY tutorials. They are narrowed down to the Top 10 and one lucky winner receives an amazing grand prize package of current DIY Club Sponsors’ products.

The DIY Project Party Monthly Contest is now open to all project tutorials using any products. While we encourage you to use the fine products by current DIY Club Sponsors, you can now link up and participate no matter what products you use if you meet the following guidelines.

1} Participants must simply be a follower of The DIY Club and have the DIY Club Member Charm in their header or sidebar.

 2} Posts must involve a tutorial, include photos of all supplies used throughout the project, have the DIY Project Party button in the project post and/or sidebar, mention and link to The DIY Club in post, and the project -be a first-time entry at the DIY Project Party Monthly Contest. (Your project can be older as long as it the first time you are entering it in the DIY Club party–just follow all the other guidelines)

The DIY Gals will select a Top 10 each month. We will then score each of the Top 10 project tutorials on the following criteria:

(1) use of sponsor products (points awarded for each sponsor product used and included in a post photo) (view sponsor list),

(2) creativity/ingenuity of project, 

(3) quality of project,

(4) quality of step-by-step instructions/tutorial, and

(5) quality of photos.

While you are not required to use DIY Club Sponsor products to participate in the party or get into the Top 10, it certainly helps your score if you are going for that amazing Grand Prize Package. To see examples of great projects, check out our past winners.

We are also expanding the time frame of the party. It will now be up for 3 weeks each month! Link up your projects starting the 1st day of each month and ending the 21st day of each month.

TGIF is our newest addition here at The DIY Club. We want to feature the amazing Etsy vendors that honor the spirit of DIY with handmade products. So, each weekend, starting Friday and ending Sunday, we’ll feature one Etsy shop and host a giveaway from that vendor. Interested in being featured? Contact Cheri@itssovercheri.com.

In order to focus on the exciting events above, we’ve decided to put the showcase to rest. We appreciate everyone that has been involved. We encourage you to link up your project tutorials to the DIY Project Party Monthly Contest. Please also stop in each weekend for TGIF!
