Glitter will fly, rhinestones will roll, and hot glue guns will be fired in CRAFT WARS, TLC’s ultimate crafting competition. Craft Wars is hosted and executive produced by author and avid crafter, Tori Spelling. In each episode of CRAFT WARS – premiering tonight at 10/9c. – three talented crafters will go head to head to create amazing themed projects in the hopes of winning a $10,000 prize.
Crafting has been reinvented, evolving from a hobby into a practical form of self-expression seen in everything from fashion to party planning. This competition has a lot of fantastic D-I-Y takeaway tips covering everything from fashion, food, holidays, summer, and great CRAFTASTIC stuff you can do with kids!
Here’s how it works: first, the contestants face off in the Pop Craft challenge, where they must create one of the craft world’s most popular items in just one hour, using surprise materials and just about any crafting supply they could dream of. Judges Erica Domesek (author of the DIY book, PS I Made This), Stephen Brown (author and founder of the multi-million dollar gift wear company Glitterville Studios) and Jo Pearson (author and creative expert for Michaels) will evaluate their crafts and eliminate one contestant. Then, the final two must wow the judges in the challenge of a lifetime, the Master Craft challenge. With their team, they’ll have to use all of their creative prowess, and push themselves to the limit, because when time is up, only one can win the WAR.
In the premiere episode, “Summer School” – airing tonight at 10/9c, the contestants must create a fashion-forward duffle bag out of sports equipment for the Pop Craft challenge. Then, the final two must wow the judges in their crafting challenge of a lifetime, The Master Craft, where they must create a playhouse out of school supplies.
