When it comes to home decor, one aspect that I always find extremely important is the ability to make it personal. Sure, you can buy standard pieces and have them look lovely, but isn't your home supposed to reflect your individual personality and not that of others who happen to shop at the same store as you?
Glade thinks so. In fact, they not only want to see you flaunt your design skills but they want to offer you more than $20,000 in prizes for doing so. Now that's what I call decorating!
The Glade Design and Shine Contest wants you to show off your creativity and personal style by designing the next Glade Scented Oil Candle Decorative Glass Holder - and possibly taking home a big cash prize in the process!
Until October 31, 2010, simply visit Glade Design and Shine and get started making your own custom candle holder with their easy-to-use software. With a few simple clicks, your plain white canvas can be turned into a work of art by selecting a color and one of an endless list of icons. Choose a few, choose many, it's up to you. Once you've added an icon, you can easily change the color, size and more. You're the designer!
After your design is complete, submit it and you'll be entered to win! Six first place winners will be awarded $750 and two grand prize winners will receive $10,000 and have their Glass Holder produced and sold in stores. Now that's a prize!
What's so great about Glade's Scented Oil Candle Decorative Glass Holders in the first place? The unique warming plate melts the candle into a pool of scented oil wax, which releases the soothing fragrance into the air for everyone to enjoy. At the same time, the shimmering candlelight coming through the glass holder makes wonderful patterns and designs, only adding to the calming atmosphere in the room.
As an added bonus, the candle melts away completely and when the oil is gone there is no mess left behind. Simply add a new fragrance refill and you're ready for the next time a beautiful addition to the ambiance is needed. And isn't that something that everyone can enjoy?
Find out more about Glade's Scented Oil Candles on their website and then be sure to head over to the Glade Design and Shine Contest to have a great time designing your own Glass Holder... and hopefully win $10,000 in the process!
