Hanukkah Crafts and Decorations
Hanukkah Star And Dreidel Cards
Handcrafted Hanukkah greetings with cut-out patterns offer a fun, personalized way to present gift cards.
Stars made from folded paper are so easy to create that within a half hour you can have enough on hand to adorn all of your presents or string into garlands.
For Hanukkah, set out a menorah composed of mini bottles clad in ribbon.
Sufganiyot, or jelly doughnuts, can be given out as party favors when arranged in cupcake liners and packaged in cellophane bags.
Construction Paper Dreidels
Construction paper chains and dreidels are made in blue and white, the colors of the Israeli flag.
Hanukkah Gelt Bags
Each year, children celebrating Hanukkah receive a small bag filled with gelt, the Yiddish word for money. This year, fashion a gelt bag out of velvet and emboss it with holiday symbols.
Let the kids make flame headpieces from red and yellow construction paper, then entertain the grownups with the story of the menorah.
