Hey you crafty lot! We’ve got an exciting competition we’re pretty sure you’d like to be a part of. Starting from today, we’re asking you to share what you have done with our paints, wallpapers, and fabric, whether it’s in creative, unique or traditional ways. Share your photos on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #MakeandDecorate to show us how you have been using these products in your home.

Whether you’ve up-cycled an old piece of furniture using our paints, made yourselves some curtains using our fabrics, or came up with a crafty creation using our wallpaper… we want to see it all! You could be in with the chance of winning one of two £150 vouchers. We’re giving one away to the most creative entry, and the other will be picked at random.

The competition will run for two weeks, from the 1st September-14th September, and all entries will be proudly displayed on our website here. We’d LOVE to see what you’ve been doing, so don’t be shy!

Why not try your hand at this DIY mobile courtesy of our lovely blogger pal Kate? Isn’t it amazing? She used our fabrics in a super creative way and we loved the results. See the full how to here.

Laura’s Lick of Paint


Throwing it way back, we invited some bloggers to take part in a lick of paint challenge using our furniture paint. We loved how they up-cycled old pieces of furniture, check out the posts here.

Bicycle Basket Liners


We were super impressed with these bicycle basket liners blogger Victoria did using our fabrics. Think you can come up with a more creative idea? We’d love to see.

Unexpected ways to use Wallpaper


As much as we’d love to see wallpaper in your home, we’d also love to see the creative ways you use it too! Check out this post about unexpected ways to use the material, including bunting, wallpaper boxes and artwork.
