To mark our 20th birthday in the UK, we launched an ‘Every Day Inspiration’ competition, challenging the nation to find new and inventive uses for our iconic little bottles. After four weeks (and hundreds of clever suggestions from creative Yakult drinkers!), we are delighted to announce that Colette Mellor has been crowned the winner.
Colette created a charming mobile, made from Yakult bottles decorated as insects and spiders, and inspired by spring. The creation also helped Colette overcome her fear of 'creepy crawlies'! She also added small bells inside the bottles so it doubles as a wind chime. Colette received the top prize, £500 of Hobbycraft vouchers.
Two runners up received a £250 Hobbycraft voucher: Lee created a beautiful Easter wreath with the help of his four year old daughter, and Jemma worked with her little boy to put together all sorts of Yakult creations on a rainy day, including vases and fairy light holders.
Many thanks to everyone that entered the competition! We’d still love to see what you have created with your Yakult ‘empties’; please do keep your photos coming to firstname.lastname@example.org
