With Christmas only a few weeks away, I’m pleased to be able to share with you a competition that’s very festive indeed!

Vision Direct will be including a template for you to create your very own homemade Christmas tree decoration in every order placed with them, or you can download the template online here.
All you need to do is cut the two halves of the tree out and use them as a template to draw on your Vision Direct box or on some cardboard. Then, get creative decorating your awesome personalised Christmassy creation.
Once you’ve treated your tree to a Christmas makeover, Vision Direct want to see it! Simply share a picture on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtags #christmascrafted and #visiondirectuk and your decorations will be entered into their competition to win a £250 Amazon voucher.
To help give you some inspiration, we’ve made our own Christmas trees and here’s how we did it…
First gather all of your craft materials. To make our Christmas trees I used some porcelain paint pens, PVA glue, pom poms and various sequins.
The first thing you need to do is download your Christmas tree templates and cut them out.
Then simply place your Christmas tree templates onto a piece of cardboard or your Vision Direct box if you placed an order with them, and draw around your template, before cutting out your cardboard Christmas trees.
Make sure you cut down the dotted line too as this is how you slot your trees together!
Next up is the fun part! I used a porcelain pen to colour the large tree in green, then I used a silver pen to colour the medium sized tree in silver and a gold pen for the smallest tree.
Then I used my craft materials to add detail to the trees. For the green tree, I used grey tissue paper as ‘tinsel’. I then used the PVA glue to stick on some red sequin stars and silver sequin ‘baubles’.
For the medium sized silver tree, I stuck on some white and green pompoms, along with some red sequin stars.
For the small gold tree, I stuck on some red sequin stars, silver sequin ‘baubles’ and a small Santa too!
Overall, I think the end result is very effective and I must admit the trees look rather lovely on my window sill!
