Cedar wood block competition!! Win fabulous prizes!

Just a reminder that all club members are invited to compete in our latest Garden Club competition. Your task if you want to win fabulous prizes is to create something using this piece of wood. Anything. You can even use more than one piece of wood.

Prizes will be awarded at the March meeting so bring your creation!! Judging will be similar to the summer container garden competition. Prizes will be $20.00 for first place, $15.00 for second place and $10.00 for third place. But more importantly, you will be held in high esteem by your fellow garden club members!!

Here are some ideas on Pinterest if you are stumped:

Log in or register with pinterest if you want lots more ideas!!

Get your pieces of wood from Pam. You can pick up one or more pieces at any time you are in Grantsburg. They are outside the side door on the west side of the garage (my garage is at the dead end of Pine Street half a block north of the post office in Grantsburg--216 N Pine Street). Stop by and help yourself, no need to call ahead.  I have plenty of these pieces of wood so take as many as you like.

We will also be using these pieces of wood to make quilt blocks in November but feel free to make quilt blocks if you so choose.

We are hoping the club can come up with some really fun ideas that we can use to make things to sell at Grantoberfest. Scour Pinterest, crafter websites and magazines or just let your mind go wild!! then get to work. You can incorporate anything you want to, to create your masterpiece, even electricity. But it must include at least one piece of wood (or part of the piece of wood or all of it cut in pieces or....)

Bring your finished product or products to the March meeting for show and tell and prizes!! You may submit up to 3 entries.

And don't forget to RSVP for the Valentine's Day tea!!
