When we found out that February is National Bird Feeding Month, we were inspired to create this challenge!
Your task is to create a birdhouse for the birds in your yard or neighborhood. If you already have a birdhouse, but it needs some refreshing, we have a category for you to submit in too.
Get creative and create a little feeder for your feathered friends. You could win a great prize for your efforts.
‼️ Reminder: If you're painting your bird feeder, please do not paint the interior or feeding tray - paint is toxic for birds‼️
Either create a bird feeder from scratch, or find an existing feeder that needs a refresh. Snap a before photo, an in-progress photo, and final photo of the bird feeder and complete the submission form to enter. You must use at least one Rust-Oleum product when working on your bird feeder. The work for this challenge should be done between January 29 and February 28 March 14th.
When the submission phase ends, our panel of expert reviewers will whittle down the choices to create a shortlist, and then it'll be up to the community to cast their votes for the winners.
Create a birdfeeder using at least one Rust-Oleum product
Complete the submission form before March 14 at midnight CST
Include at least three photos of your feeder - we need to see the finished project but also want to see a before shot, and an in-progress photo too! Be sure the images you upload are clear and well lit. If we can’t see it, it’s tough to judge.
Tell us how you went about working on your feeder, the steps you took, and challenges you may have had.
Multiple submissions per person are allowed! If you have created more than one bird feeder, please submit each one in a separate submission.
Your bird feeder must be created between January 29th and March 14, 2021. Projects completed prior to this time period are not eligible.
Once all of the submissions are collected, our team of Rust-Oleum experts will evaluate the feeders to ensure that all rules have been followed and create a shortlist. We'll then pass the final vote to Creator's Studio members to crown our winners!
We'll be crowning a winner in two categories based on the type of work completed, and then selecting one overall champion. Up for grabs are three gift cards for the home improvement store of your choice (Home Depot, Lowe's or Menards)
Best Bird Feeder Refresh: $100 gift card
Best New Build: $150 gift card
Best Overall Bird Feeder: $250 gift card
And, to thank all of our members for taking part in the voting phase of this Challenge, everyone who casts a vote will be entered into a random drawto win a Rust-Oleum prize pack!
Rust-Oleum reserves the right to change or adjust the prizes awarded, as well as the right to reject or request amendments to submissions.
