October: Reuse and Rethink Contest

October: Reuse and Rethink Contest

This month’s challenge: Mustard Bath Cans

Come shop for not only your craft supplies but with a challenge in mind – (think Unconventional Challenge) all materials will be available at a low cost (as always) at ACR.

Make something big or small! Each can is .25 cents or buy a 5 gallon bucket of them and more supplies from our Bucket section for $5.  Heck you might have already bought these and turned them into pumpkins or some other amazing creation?!

This reuse art contest is another way Austin Creative Reuse will inspire people from all ages and backgrounds to create and reuse.

Here is how it works:

  • Each month, we will have a creative reuse contest!
  • Materials used must be reused — all materials will be available at ACR for simplicity in gathering your creative pieces.
  • The submissions will be judged on three qualities:creativity, workmanship and use of other reused materials.
  • Every month a prize from ACR: a FREE bucket of reusable materials of your choice from ACR’s bucket area.
  • Have fun!



  • When you’ve completed your creation, please provide up to 2 photos of your art piece, your contact info and a short description of materials used.  Your submission can be made in person at ACR or in an email to barb@austincreativereuse.org.
  • Deadline: Oct. 31st

Winner will be notified and announced on social media, along with photos of their creation displayed in the center and on our website!

Good luck!
