Hanukkah Decorations

Dec 16, 2014

Hanukkah is almost here! Which means it’s time to get your crafts going so you can bring some cheer and homemade warmth with these decoration ideas. Whether you have them already placed and hung for your celebration or do the crafts with friends and family at the party these decorations are perfect for all eight nights of Hanukkah.

Glass Bottle Menorah

Supplies:

  • 8 glass bottles all the same size
  • 1 larger bottle
  • spray paint
  • 9 tapered candles

Instructions:

  1. Gather your bottles. This may take some time and a lot of drinking.
  2. Remove any labels on the bottles by soaking them in hot soapy water.
  3. Spray paint the bottles whatever color you like. If they need more than one coat, let the first coat dry completely before applying the second.
  4. Let paint dry and wedge candles into the top of the bottles.
  5. Arrange the bottle so that the bigger bottle is in the center of a line of the smaller bottles.
  6. Light one every night.

Star of David

Supplies:

  • Blue pipe cleaners
  • Yellow String
  • Thumb tacks or tape

Instructions:

  1. Make two triangles with the pipe cleaners. Twist one closed and leave the other open.
  2. Insert the open triangle into the close one so that it weaves in and twist the second triangle closed.
  3. Tie the yellow string to the top of the star.
  4. At different lengths hang multiple stars in front of a window, from the ceiling or a chandelier and enjoy!

Paper Dreidels

Supplies:

  • Construction Paper
  • Glue
  • Toothpicks

Instructions:

  1. Cut ¼” strips of paper. A paper cutter works best, but scissors will do too.
  2. Glue the paper to the toothpick. Make sure to glue it just where the taper of the toothpick ends so it’s attached to an even surface.
  3. Let the glue dry completely. Waiting is the hardest part.
  4. Tightly wrap the paper around the toothpick.
  5. Glue the end of the paper to itself to create a disc of paper and let dry completely.
  6. Using your thumb and forefinger pull the outer edge of the paper disc up so that there is a little bowl of paper. Do this slowly so it doesn’t unravel.
  7. Good luck playing Draidel!

((Papyrus is so nervous, he can't decide, so he asks if PunMaster wants to choose.)) ​Wow, is Blueberry naïve? ​My friend's soul is purple, monster souls are white. "Yes, it does look odd, doesn't it?" As fast as I can, I button up my jacket. ​"Don't tell anyone. Especially not your brother. I fear he would not think well of me." ​Papyrus's assuming of anything would most likely not play out in my favour.

Blue stared at the glow, his blue eyes large. "Is that your soul?" He asked curiously. "It looks a bit odd..." He commented, his head tilting to the side like a dog's. Proof he spent a lot of time around the dogs, to be picking up on little actions like that. (PunMaster smiled, and sat down, gently helping Papyrus sit as well, and she let him choose the puzzle)

(("I-I... I guess so..." Papyrus, from lack of social interaction, stumbled over his words like a small child. But he was smiling. If you looked very close, you could see a tear in his eye.)) ​"I've honestly never had the time for them... But I'll give it a shot..." ​I really had plenty of free time, but I never cared about puzzles much. Unfortunately, during our romp around the Underground, my coat had come un-done. ​The reason I wear my coat is to hide the glow of my friend, but now she was pulsing with light. Too late to hide it from Blueberry's stare.
