How I Decorated for Hanukkah

After I made my Eight Posts for Hanukkah my house is full of blue and chalkboard and burlap. So I decided I would do a post to show you how all of these crafts have come together as decorations in my home for the holiday. A lot of people don’t do more than just a Menorah and fine china or maybe a small decoration on their door. I want to show you how I was able to  add a lot of decorations for very little money and really give my home the feeling of the holiday.

A candle lighting station with family photos, my Shabbat candlesticks, and my Menorah.

A handprint/footprint Menorah apron I made with my boys. I posted about it earlier.

I have Hanukkah towels and pot holders that add a festive touch to my kitchen.

My casual Hanukkah table decor.

Once the holiday comes I will do a full Hanukkah tablescape and share that with you. I am listing the tutorials for all the DIY projects below.

Eight Posts for Hanukkah Bonus-Rustic Pinecone Dreidel Centerpiece

This is where my pinecone dreidels wound up.  I had been thinking of stringing them together to make a garland, but I came across this metal pail and got inspired.  I wrapped the bottom of the pain and handle with twine, securing with hot glue.  I also used the twinevto tie little bows around my dreidels.  I took a wooden round piece and painted it with chalkboard paint and drew a Menorah with chalkboard marker.  I’m really pleased with it and can’t wait to put in my Hanukkah tablescape!
