Threadless’s Grandma’s House design contest

It’s time for some good, old-fashioned art in Threadless‘s Grandma’s House design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Welcome, whippersnapper. Mind the rugs, take a seat on the yellowed plastic couch cover, and dust off a Werther’s from one of many candy dishes. Here, the smell of soap and roses commingle with Folgers and stacks of old newspaper to create a pleasant perfume that could only mean one thing: Grandma’s house. Where the attic’s full of surprises, the basement stairs creak, and the garden’s really a jungle.

This senior-inspired design challenge will make you mind your manners as you create fresh art that might be found in, or based on experiences at, Grandma’s house. Do doilies and coasters protect all surfaces from the tchotchkes that line them? Is the radio frequency always set to AM? Give us lace-lined designs, featuring hand towels that aren’t actually for drying your hands (they’re for decoration). Craft designs of antique filled rooms, dated decor, or typography of your Grandma’s favorite sayings. Get designing and make somebody’s Grandma very proud.

This contest opens to entries on September 20th and ends on October 4th 2019. One winner will earn $1000 cash and a $500 Threadless gift code. Also, all designers printed will earn up to $7 per item sold (learn more about Threadless artist payments).
