Handmade Chanukah Crochet Dreidel Garland

20 November, 2015

Chanukah is nipping at our heels and it’s time to get your home into the spirit of the holiday. We’ve got the perfect DIY goodie to get you ready for the festival of lights.

Crochet this Dreidel Garland to create a truly festive atmosphere. Like a regular dreidel, the design features four letters in the Hebrew alphabet—Nun, Gimel, Hei, and Shin. It has the warmth of something homemade and the charm of something discovered in a local boutique.

Use it to create a beautiful tablescape, hang it on the wall for added decoration, or gift it to that family member that hosts the most delicious Chanukah dinner every year. And if you don’t celebrate Chanukah, make it for someone who does!
