Sometimes crafting can take days, weeks or even years! Deciding on colors, surfaces and coming up with new ideas - all fun ways to get lost in the process. BUT - what if you only had 60 minutes to craft, from concept to creation? When our Plaid Creators joined us at Plaid HQ last month, to learn about our new products, we surprised them with the ultimate craft challenge!
The nine Creators were split into teams of three, and each got a table, tea towel, chair and wooden crate to create a vignette in an hour!
Everyone enthusiastically dove into the challenge with paintbrushes flying!
Each team then presented their vingette to our VIP judges - some of our most creative people here at Plaid!
The first group presented this sea inspired coastal chic theme that has us yearning for sand between our toes. Especially clever? They whipped up a little pillow from the dishtowels and stuffed it with yarn!

Next stop, the tropics! Stenciled accents make this vignette stand out and inspires us to ‘viva la vida!’ The organic tones and metallic accents give it a festive feel.

Lastly, give three cheers for the red, white and blue in this fun Americana theme - complete with hand lettered lovelies.

We were amazed at what the teams were able to do in one short hour! Which one is your favorite and what do you think our judges chose? (Hint: The winners celebrated the red, white and blue in style!)
