Making Festive Friends With Lighbulbs

A very crafty competition in the lead-up to Christmas, LightBulbs-Direct is offering you the chance to redecorate old and plain light bulbs into exciting new Christmas ‘light bulble’ baubles, with the added bonus of being able to win a £100 John Lewis gift card prize!
The entries can be decorated using any original or festive crafting materials, and can be hung from the tree, arranged in an artful display, or displayed however you wish!

 Please see the Terms & Conditions here  

The competition winners will receive gift card prizes for John Lewis, with:

£100 for the winner
£50 for second place and
£25 for third place

Please do not leave your child untended with a glass lightbulb as they are very dangerous. I did coat ours in very strong glue a few days before in the hope of it ever smashing the glass would be contained.

We decided to do a display of a very fluffy snowman with a snow filled sky, siting in a mountain of snow with a very naughty reindeer. This has taken us nearly four days to do.

First of all we used a huge amount of glue for the snowman and coated him with cotton wool balls, we added googly eyes, a felt hat and buttons, paper carrot nose and a ribbon scarf.

Next up the reindeer the kids painted brown, we added googly eyes, a Bit of red shiny paper for nose and lollypop sticks for antlers. 

We displayed them in a box painted the top of the lid white, added foam snowflakes and loads of glitter. Then the fake snow pieces is wrapping from a parcel. 

 The children had so much fun decorating the lightbulbs and making festive friends.

For the chance to win these great prizes, submit a link to your post about the competition and with a photo of your light bulble decoration, as well as your name and contact email address, to competition@lightbulbs-direct.com between 27th November and 26th December 2013.  For more details please see: - the full competition details, terms and conditions.
