12 Days of Christmas Challenge

Christmas Challenge

On the first day of Christmas, Artbeads gave to me…a 12 Days of Christmas Challenge! It’s always exciting waiting for Christmas to arrive and taking part in holiday activities. One of our favorite Christmas traditions is making jewelry and crafts. To get you excited to make this holiday season, we’re counting down to Christmas with a 12 Days of Christmas Challenge!

Starting December 14th, we’re giving you prompts each day to challenge yourself to create. Join us on Instagram and our private Facebook Group for #SeriousArtbeaders to take part and share posts for each day’s theme (make sure you join the group and follow us on Instagram so you can see what others share). You can share jewelry, beads from your stash, the crafts that you’re working on – whatever inspires you to create! There are no rules, so get as creative as you like. Just use the hashtag #ArtbeadsChristmas with each post. You could even win a few of Cynthia’s favorite things just by participating. Read on to see the prompts we’ve chosen for each day and to learn more about our giveaway.
