Calling all you crafters out there! It’s time for another Austin Creative Reuse and Rethink Contest.

Throughout the month of January, Austin’s favorite zero waste craft store is challenging folks to make the most amazing creation they can out of…metal.

Want to join in on the fun? Here’s how it works. 

  • Stop by Austin Creative Reuse anytime this month to pick up all the crafting supplies you could ever need.
  • Start creating! Take your supplies home and create whatever your heart desires. The only rule is that all the materials must be reused.
  • Once you’re done, email two photos of your creation (plus your contact info and a short description of the materials used) to rethink@austincreativereuse.org.
  • The deadline to submit your work is January 31st
  • The winner will be announced on social media

Need a little inspiration? Check out the photos below to see the winners of the December contest! (December’s theme was holiday gifts.)
