WIN a copy of Material World by the awesome Perri Lewis!!

Christmas for us is all about making and giving handmade. And once we’ve scoured Folksy and our local craft markets for goodies for our friends and family we like nothing more than to get the Christmas music on and potter around making paper chains and festive wreaths to decorate our own home.

This month we are looking for the best DIY festive makes to share with the Folksy community. Send us a step by step guide to your Christmas make and you could win one of five copies of ‘Material World’ by Perri Lewis – it IS the modern craft bible and no maker should be without a copy.

So grab your camera and show us what you’re making this Christmas.

Boring but very important small print, please read….

Entries must include a step by step guide to making a Christmas Decoration using words, images and a list of items needed to complete the make. Please send all entries to with the subject heading Christmas Makes and we’ll be in touch by the 14th December if you’ve won. Entries will be judged by members of the Folksy team on originality and quality of images & text. Winning entries will be published on both the Folksy blog and Frankly on the run up to Christmas. Winners will be credited and will include a link to their Folksy shop if they have one. Closing date for entries is Nov 30th 2012.
