How to participate in the Festive Drawing Weeks 2023
Submissions open November 1st, 2023 - January 7th, 2024.
Participation is fun and simple. Post a picture of your window drawing or other Holiday DIY project on social media and use the hashtag #holidayswithedding or upload your picture to this webpage. By submitting your drawings or project, you will automatically be entered to our raffle. Who knows, you might win one of the ten edding product prizes, perfect for your next creative project!
The steps are explained below:
Step 1 - Select a template for your Festive Project
It all starts with an idea. You can draw freehand, use our template generator or download and print one of our special drawing templates in different variations and levels of difficulty.
A tip for window drawing: Stick the template on the window, start tracing and watch your windows transform into a festive masterpiece. If you want the drawing to be readable from the outside, stick the mirror image on the outside. You can then trace the drawing from the inside.
For other materials, you can use tracing paper for example. Place the thin sheet of paper between the template and the surface you want to design and transfer your favourite template motif with a pencil or pen (yellow copy paper is particularly suitable for dark backgrounds). Then trace and color the motif with the marker.
If you are more advanced, have the template ready and transfer the template motif onto the object with a pencil and decorate it with the right edding marker.
Step 2 - Choose the right edding marker
For special metallic effects on dark and light cards, tags or on wrapping paper. our edding metallic brush pens are ideal for writing and lettering too!
Bring your creations to life with the edding acrylic markers. Add some holiday cheer to light and dark surfaces and embelish picture frames, stones, terracota pots, wood, canvas and more.
Where to buy the right edding marker
Don't have the right edding marker at home? You can find them at the following online and store outlets:
Step 3 - Let's start and get creative
Once you have your template and the appropiate edding marker for the task, you can start your project. We have some fun how to tutorials and tips to help you start in case a little holiday inspiration is needed ;).
Step 4 - Take a picture of your project
When you’ve finished your Festive Drawing, take a clear photograph ready for uploading or posting.
A tip for Window Drawings: It is best to take a photo in the evening (without flash), when there is less sunlight and therefore fewer reflections on the window.
Step 5 - Upload your picture
Spread ideas, inspiration and the passion for creativity into the world. Help us create a merrier holiday season by not only drawing on windows but also on other surfaces like paper, glass, wood, stones and many more - just get creative!
