Our Top 8 MUST DO Hanukkah Crafts

Hanukkah Project Round-up

🎶 Hanukkah, oh Hanukkah come light the menorah! Let’s have a party and make lots of pom poms 🎶

As it starts to get darker earlier (thanks daylight savings!) we are so excited for Hanukkah to begin to bring some extra brightness into our homes on these long winter nights. While a Hanukkiah burning brightly on its own is a gorgeous addition to our windowsills, you know we’re itching to add a little something extra to celebrate. (I mean, we have 8 full days, right?!)

We rounded up some of our favorite Hanukkah-themed DIY projects that we know you’re going to like a-latke. Whether you make these in advance of night 1, or schedule some family-time to craft together during the holiday, read on for 8 lit DIY projects for Hanukkah!

Our Top 8 MUST DO Hanukkah Crafts

DIY Hanukkah Projects 1

You can pair any of the Pom-Tassel tutorials below with our new Hanukkah Pom Tassel Garland Kit

Donut Tassel Tower

Sufganiyot aka jelly donuts are a traditional Hanukkah treat. What better way to display donuts at your next Hanukkah party than as a tower crowned with a festive tassel garland topper! So simple to create yet totally show-stopping.

Pom Pom Garland

No holiday would be complete without a seasonal garland to match, so we whipped up this special mini pom pom Hanukkah garland in a mix of traditional and not-so-traditional Hanukkah colors. The pom poms featured in this tutorial are speckled, however you can of course make poms in any pattern you please!

Pom Pom Napkin Rings

Hanukkah is a holiday filled with oily, delicious treats like sufganiyot and potato latkes, so having napkins on hand is always in order. We thought it would be fun to jazz up the typical Hanukkah napkin situation with some pom pom napkin rings, perfect for every type of celebration from small candle-lighting gatherings to sophisticated Hanukkah dinner parties.

Pom Pom Drink Stirrers

Festive cocktails call for decorative accessories — and a Hanukkah cocktail is no exception! These fun pom pom cocktail stirrers also make the perfect host gift for any Hanukkah party!

Glitter Dreidels by Martha Stewart

This incredible tutorial turns plain wooden dreidels into dazzling decor using only glue and fine glitter. We recommend keeping these set aside for decor rather than a game of dreidel. 🎶 Dreidel dreidel dreidel, I covered you in glue, and then I added glitter, and now you’re sparkly, too! 🎶 

Washi Tape Menorah by Make It Jewish

Washi Tape is a craft supply that’s great for everything, and Hanukkah is no exception! Kids (and kids at heart) will love DIYing their own menorah using just paper and tape!

Felt Menorah Banner by Made By Ilyssa

We’re SO inspired by this handmade felt banner with removable candles! The best part? Put it away after Hanukkah and you can use it year after year, making it part of your family’s holiday traditions.

Wooden Bead Star by Over the Ocean

This Wooden Bead Star is something we’d have no problem leaving up year-round, it’s that lovely. This would also make a great a great gift topper, doorknob hanger, or hostess gift! We also can’t wait to try this pattern using The Ultimate Bead Kit to make some bead star drop earrings!
