We really enjoyed organizing the MAKE & CRAFT Halloween Contest this year. We’ve already shown you the winners, but thought we’d share more about the sweet prizes. I got to pack up the goodies and snapped a few pictures before the FedEx guy picked them up. Thanks to all who entered the contest! Above: 1st place in food, awarded to Marc Brownlow for his Skull Truffles.

Grand prize in tech, awarded to Keith Corcoran for this Scary Ticket Booth build.

Grand prize in craft, awarded to Jordan Olsen for the Business Lizard and Brief Case Diorama.

1st place in costume went to Kiersten for these “They Live” Alien Masks.

1st place in props went to Mini Gun Madness by Doug & Gloria Desrochers.

The winner of 1st place in decor was Eric Albertson for his Asian Fortress facade tutorial.

    Man, those bundles look amazing. I want!

    Thanks for being our gifting elf, Becky. You rock.

    And again, thanks to all of the fine contest entries. It was a pleasure to read through all of the projects and to do the judging.

      Ditto across the board!! It’s as tough to pick a favorite prize pack as it is to pick a favorite contest project – they’re all so cool!
