There really is a reality TV show for everything. Of course, there is a show for crafters to go head to head in crazy challenges - why wouldn't there be? At least this random topic is one I'm interested in! If you like this blog, I am pretty sure you'll like "Craft Wars" on TLC (Tuesdays at 10pm ET / 9 CT).
In the premiere last week, three crafters battled it out in two challenges - the first was to create a fashionable bag out of sports equipment (footballs, tennis rackets, etc.). The final challenge to win $10,000 involved building a child's playhouse largely out of school supplies - from roofs shingled out of composition notebooks to window boxes made from pencils.
Here's one of the finished playhouses (each crafter had a team helping them execute on their ideas):
The creativity of the contestants and the unexpected challenges was enough to hook me. If your DVR is a little empty during the summer months, this could be a promising show to add to your line up, so check it out tonight!
