Fall Make-It Challenge: Palette from a Picture!

 Fall Make-It Challenge: Palette from a Picture!

Fall is officially in the air! The beautiful colors and crisp air have us feeling inspired and invigorated. Are you feeling it too? We hope so, because we are officially launching our second Make It Challenge!

We invite you to create your very own Autumn-inspired multi-wrap bracelet. Use the images shown here or choose from your own inspiration photo. You can use any stitch(es) you like - Laddering, Herringbone, Macrame. The rules are simple, palette your project from a picture or painting, then send us photographs of both your inspiration and your completed bracelet. If you're new to palleting, please review our free Tricks of the Trade handout.

*In order to use the photos on our website, they do need to be high-quality and sharp with space on all sides; we crop them to fit our format. If you have the option to send it with your smartphone, pick "large" setting, whenever possible. If you've made changes to the pattern or colors, we’d love to hear about the ingredients you've used. Giving it a name is an extra bonus and a few words on what the project means to you really helps us share your creative process with our readers.

From there, we will select 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners before sharing all of the entries with you for Fan Favorite voting.

We can’t wait to see what you create. Happy beading!
