Upcycling Competition – Win £250 in Amazon Vouchers

Today’s post will give DIYers a chance to win £250 in Amazon Vouchers in my Blogger Competition with Able Skills!

Feeling lucky? I’ve teamed up with trade and construction training provider AbleSkills to run a super fun and creative upcycling challenge. We’re looking for arts and crafts bloggers to make something for their home using old building materials – such as brick, tiles and pipe.

Stuck for ideas? Here are a few ideas to get you started and see below for my project too:




How to Enter

You need to create a blog post that features your upcycled item. You can be as imaginative and creative as you like in your post, we’re looking for entries that really make the most out of scrap materials. Feel free to use photos and videos alongside the method in your entry.

To enter, all we ask that is the post is a previously unpublished and that you include a link to Able Skills (http://www.ableskills.co.uk/) or embed our competition badge in your post (see below).

You need to publish your entry by 31 October 2014 and share a link to your entry in the widget at the bottom of the blog post before midnight on that date.

If you’re entered, please feel free to tweet @ableskills and us and they’ll share your lovely blog post with all their followers!

  • The winning post, as decided by the Able Skills team will win a whopping £250 in Amazon vouchers to spend on whatever you fancy!
  • There is also a second prize of £100 in Amazon Vouchers to the first runner up

  1. I have been meaning to create this blog for a while and did it today after seeing the comp. I’m having difficulty getting the right link as other businesses have this name but will put some sort of link or work out how to embed logo.

    great idea – thanks

    1. Hi Angie! We have extended the competition to close on 31 October so you have plenty of time to enter. The linky is still open to add yours, perhaps try refreshing the page? Let me know if you still have troubles. x
