Announcing My New TLC Show

I am thrilled to let you guys know that I will be the host and executive producer on a brand new TLC show: “Craft Wars.

As a lifelong crafter, I love how crafting gives you the opportunity to really express yourself and show your creativity. It’s an amazing outlet and nothing shows love more than something homemade. I can’t wait to share my passion and be inspired by all the amazing contestants on “Craft Wars.”



Each episode will feature new crafting enthusiasts pitted against each other in two rounds of difficult challenges and I’ll be acting as both a mentor for the contestants and host for the audience.

Michaels will be supplying the contestants with everything they need to get inspired and build their best creations, and the fabulous judging panel includes craft experts Stephen Brown, Erica Domesek, and Jo Pearson.

The show will premiere June 26th and I can’t wait for you to tune in and catch all of the craftastic creativity and excitement. And, keep checking in here on ediTORIal, as I’ll be posting behind-the-scenes pictures and updates as we continue production.

Will you be tuning in to “Craft Wars” this summer? Let me know in the comments!

  • Yolana S.

    It gives me something to look forward to!

  • kim meares

    hey tori, im wondering if you would incorporate crafting ideas for disabled people somehow. im a quad due to a car accident and i have some limitations due to my injury but ive done some paint by numbers and a few crotcheted items. not only is crafting fun but for people in my condition its therapeutic as well. maybe i could co-host an episode or two with you. im starting to see more disabled people in the media which has been so inspirational for me, especially when we are being portrayed the same as the rest of society. i think with your level of creativity you could probably help thedisabled community. thank u tori!

  • Teresa Luck

    you know we will watch!!

  • Nikki Rogalski

    Congrats, Tori! This is so awesome. This is SO your niche… or at least one of them, LOL! Good thing happen to good people, so they say…. so you must be really, really awesome. 😀 I know your new show, Craft Wars will be. Congrats again!

  • Karen Driscoll

    I can’t wait!! I only wish that there were more craft shows on T.V. There used to be Scrapbooking shows, Jewelry, and just plain Crafting, and it is so sad that they are all gone. I am so glad to hear that Tori is doing this new show, it sounds like a lot of fun!! I am so happy to hear about the new little one!! You are so blessed!!


    I am so glad you are going to be on TLC with your crafts. I have two great ideas that I would like to share with you. The first on is on the lines of your tulle balls. Wrap string soaked in glue around different size blown up balloons. Let dry and the spray paint any color (Great for Christmas). They you use Christmas Tree Lights and put a ball on each light or if you make bigger balls, use a few lights for each ball. This is a great way to get kids involved and they look really great strung around the room. Another craft that I did is a “Rose Topiary Lamp”; get a plain table lamp (slim) and shade. Glue the bottom of the light into a clay pot (used for plants). Glue some moss and tree limbs onto lamp stem and then glue flowers (I used Roses) onto the Shade. Glue really tight together. Then string with red (or clear) lights (from top down) so you can plug it in from bottom and you have a beautiful “Rose Topiary Lamp”. I have this lamp in my entry and I get so many compliments from visitors. It looks so real and when it is lit up it gives a real soft, romantic glow. Just wanted to share. I plan to make on with Poinsettias this year for the holidays. I love crafting, too!
