Recently I wrote a post for The National Trust about this year’s Christmas wrapping theme. The idea behind it was to show that with minimal cost and effort, you can produce something handmade that looks pretty cool and makes people think you’re generally very thoughtful and kind.
If you fancy turning your hand to something homemade this Christmas, why not enter the National Trust’s handmade Christmas competition and snaffle yourself a prize in the process?
How to enter the National Trust handmade Christmas competition
There are a total of 11 prizes up for grabs – first prize is a bundle of craft and foodie treats, worth £50, and there are 10 runners up prizes of dark chocolate and ginger truffles. (Yum.)
To enter is easy, all you have to do is share a picture of your handmade Christmas item, whether that’s your very own wrapping theme, something tasty to eat, a tree decoration – anything you like! You can share either through Facebook, here, (where you can also view a gallery of entries so far), or by posting a picture on Instagram or Twitter and using the hashtag #NTHandmadeChristmas.
The winners will be chosen by a fantastic celebrity blogger judge… ME!! How exciting! You have until 31st December to enter, and full details can be found here. If you’re lacking some inspiration, the National Trust have some homemade Christmas inspiration too.
This is such a lovely idea and a perfect excuse to get crafty this Christmas! x
Absolutely! And so easy to enter – I’m sure loads of people will have phones full of Christmas craft pictures already!
Lovely competition! I’ve just shared my tree decorations that we made yesterday on my Instagram post. Crossed fingers :)
Thanks for entering Rachel – good luck!
Great competition! I should actually make something just so I can enter, shouldn’t I?
I’ve looked at the terms and conditions and can’t see anywhere about one entry only. Would you know if people can enter more than once please. Thank you.
