‘Tis the season for family traditions! The Spoonflower community is a melting pot of designers and makers from all walks of life and in this week’s challenge, we want to see how you celebrate the season in your corner of the world.


Overview

Whether it’s lighting luminaires every Christmas Eve, playing dreidel on the first night of Hanukkah or going for a polar bear swim on New Year’s Day, create a repeating design that gives us a glimpse into your holiday traditions.

In recognition of the Thanksgiving holiday, voting in the Holidays Around the World Design Challenge will be open for two weeks.

  • 1st place winner will receive a $200 Spoonflower credit.
  • 2nd place winner will receive a $100 Spoonflower credit.
  • 3rd place winner will receive a $50 Spoonflower credit.
  • Remaining top 10 designs will receive a $20 Spoonflower credit. The top 50 popularly-voted designs from each theme will be automatically made available for sale in the Spoonflower Marketplace (provided they are a verified seller) where they will receive 10% commission on every sale -- no $5 swatch required.
