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!

Im sorry your going through this horribles time with your parents. Im sorry for saying this but your dad is insensitive and hes not showing you love even if he does love you. I dunno what to say cos I would feel the way you does too :/ When it comes to your mum it must of been upsetting to hear her tell her friends that your the lazy and then saying to you that shes gonna leave you and your brother cos you doesnt appreciate what she does for you.  Im thinking she could do with some more help from you with the chores if you doesnt help already.  Is there any way you could say you want to have the chat with her and then tell her how your feeling and say you dont want to be called the lazy brat and what is it that your not doing that she wants you to. I really hopes it works out and good luck :angel :love

Most murders are done by gangs or robberies or things of that nature. A murderer should be put through a refining jail system that provides resources needed to have them become a more productive member of society. And, even if it is rooted in mental illness to an extreme, why should they be killed themselves for doing something that was not their fault? If they can be rehabilitated or treated for their mental illness, then they should have those resources provided to them. There is no justification for the death of another human being....for the death of another human being.
