Feel like getting your hands dirty this Hanukkah? Here are some simple yet fun food and decor ideas to make your Hanukkah more handmade this year.
Hanukkah Window Stars Use vellum in gold or blue, a needle and thread along with some help from Martha Stewart to create Hanukkah Window Stars. Hanging them in the window will help them shine along with the sun.
Latkes, or potato pancakes, are a Hanukkah tradition for many Jews. There are endless ways to enjoy this festive favorite and thankfully, they're fairly simple to make. This recipe for brie-stuffed latkes from nofaceplate.blogspot.com is a unique take on this holiday staple.
DIY Tea-Light Menorah
Make your own menorah with items you probably already own. Wrap small boxes with festive paper and tie them with ribbon. Set a glass tea-light holder on each box and secure it with double stick tape. Visit BHG.com for some photo inspiration.
Pom Pom Hanukkah Garland
Use fleece in the traditional Hanukkah colors of blue and white to create some fun garland for your mantel or staircase. According to designsponge.com, all you need is fleece, scissors and a little thread.
In case you needed a reason to eat a jelly donut, Hanukkah can be your excuse. Sufganiyot, or jelly donuts, are widely consumed leading up to and throughout Hanukkah. Jews often eat fried foods during Hanukkah to commemorate the miracle associated with the temple oil. Check out this recipe from chabad.org for Easy Jelly Doughnuts.
