That’s right. It’s almost time for Christmas.

One of the best things about the festive season – apart from carte blanche to eat mince pies by the box-load – is that it’s the perfect excuse for all of us to Get Our Craft On, making gifts and decorations for home, friends and family. And we’re challenging our members to get crafty this Christmas and share the results with us in this fab new competition.

Britain’s Best Christmas Craft

This month, we’re thrilled to team up with Experience Days to find Britain’s best home-made Christmas Crafts.

We’d like you to demonstrate your craft on your blog with a step-by-step tutorial. Your demonstration can be written, or use photos, or video – it’s entirely up to you!

When our competition closes, a panel of judges will choose their ten favourite Christmas craft tutorials, and we’ll be giving away TEN luxury spa day experiences to our lucky winners.

Thanks to Experience Days, which provides a range of amazing experience gifts for the whole family, our 10 winners willenjoy a top-to-toe pamper experience at a luxury Marriott venue in the New Year – perfect for soothing away those festive stresses and strains. With ten winners, it could be a great chance to spend a day with your blogging chums, or you could head off for some solo sanctuary.

    Hi, when it says unpublished that means by a third party? I have a tutorial on my blog I only did a couple of weeks ago that would be perfect. Can I just add the badge/text to it and re-publish?

      The post needs to be written specifically for the competition, but if you’ve done something previously, it would be okay to do an updated version, perhaps with different pictures and a few more details?

        I could do, yes. Thank you for the response. :)
