HGTV Handmade’s Crafters on YouTube (L to R): MegAllanColeCrafts, HGTVCrafternoon, simpleDIYs and Anneorshine

The team over at HGTV Handmade (some of YouTube’s best crafters) has a friendly competition going on with their “White Craft Challenge.” Much like the renowned HGTV Star “White Room Challenge,” where competitors must each decorate an all-white room with very limited supplies, the stars of HGTV Handmade are each decorating super snooze-worthy “white” lamps following just two requirements: One, they can only use what they have in their current possession (no trips to the craft store allowed!) and two, when the lamp is finished, it must still be able to function as a light source.

Watch as this fun challenge gets underway:

(You can watch the complete White Craft Challenge Series as it unfolds by visiting the HGTV Handmade channel on YouTube.)

Fortunately for you, both this week and next, we will be giving away the impressive lamps that were created for this competition (two this week, two next week). Today, we’re offering up the lamps crafted by Marianne and Meg (below).

    I took a watch and stopwatch and made them underwater! I took some water and colored it light blue then carefully put it in the watches and then added little charms that would just float around and bounce if you shook it and everything still worked!and it was super fun and easy to make that I decided to do it again but with different themes!!! :)

    I did the same challenge/DIY about 2 years ago. I made a redecorated lamp that now is a night sky/star themed instead of the plain white lamp. I used acrylic paint to paint the lamp shade dark blue with some lighter part sort of mystical and galaxy-like. Then I added yellow dots along the top and bottom to give more pop of colour, afterwards I drew white stars everywhere on the blue. Finally, we drilled holes in the center of the 'stars' so when the light was turned on, more light would shine through the stars of the night!

    You ladies are so talented. My crafting skills are used to make new sensory things for my Autistic son. So many of the therapy products are expensive and you really don’t know if they will work. Anyhow, love the show.

    I've fancied up some light switches. Hate boring stuff.

    My husband and I took plain white letters (spelling our daughter’s name), painted them into different animal prints to match her safari themed nursery and hung it above her crib (I’d love to show you a picture of it). It looks fabulous!!
