Get some Sparkle for the Final Mundane Challenge of 2021

December 2nd, 2021
Thank you to Nada @njmom3 for hosting the Mundane-Juice challenge, to the other two 365ers who entered and all who voted for our entries. I am honoured to be the host for the final mundane challenge of 2021!

This is a great challenge for thinking creatively about the most ordinary of things we see around us, that we might not otherwise give a second glance, never mind take a photograph of. But for December 2021 I'm going for something than could be difficult to miss.

My mundane subject is all around at the moment, it's in shops, on lamp-posts, possibly in a box waiting to be found in your loft or already up on your tree. It may even be wrapped around a couple of coat hangers as an Advent candle holder?

My mundane subject is TINSEL which gets its name from the old French word for sparkle 'estincele', (according to WiKi). So please capture some bling, sparkle or bokeh. Add some special effects with processing, see how it looks in black and white or wrap yourself in it in a selfie. Just make TINSEL mundane but the STAR of your photo.

All entries should be taken between the start and end dates and tagged

- Mundane Subject - TINSEL
- Start Date – December 2, 2021
- End Date - January 7, 2022

Jackie, the tag *tinsel* already returns a bunch of results. Would you like to make this one particular, like *mundane-tinsel* or something like that? It will be easier to distinguish the entries.
