The Art of Patron Contest & My Crafty Fox!

Bit by a Fox - Art of Patron

You guys! I crafted! I may have had a few sips of Patrón while I transformed one of their bottles into a little, portly fox…but it didn’t turn out horribly! Ok, I know it’s not NEARLY as impressive as some of the other creations that have come out of the Art of Patrón contest in year’s past, but I’m pretty proud of that little guy.

As I mentioned last monthPatrón Tequila is in the midst of a bottle art competition, Art of Patrón. The contest is giving fans and artisans across the country the opportunity to get some actual cash money from their Patrón bottle creations…

 For years people have been re-purposing these iconic bottles, giving them a second life in the form of unique artwork and functional items. Recognizing this trend, the brand decided to get in on the game. By PAYING you for your creative brilliance! The grand prize winner will receive $10,000 and nine finalists $1,000 each.

As soon as I heard about this contest I knew that my creation would somehow involve a fox. A little gold spray paint, a deconstructed fox ornament, glue, some copper ribbon and voila! I’m a crafter! In your face, Pinterest!

I’m pretty sure it’s not winning the $10,000 prize or anything, but it will brighten up my liquor shelves. And remind me that I’m always a bottle away from getting Bit by a Fox!

Hey, are you inspired? You have until July 17th to throw your hat in the ring.  Check out their site for details and official rules. And, best of luck!

Special thanks to photographer Shannon Carpenter from This Aperture for her expert pics!

      Ha! That IS fancy! Also, living on the edge, having glass in near the bath tub! I’m not actually entering the contest, I’ll be one of the judges! Excited to see the creative masterpieces that come out for this!
