Chanukah Sameach!

***GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! THANKS FOR SHARING ALL OF YOUR GREAT IDEAS!***

Chanukah Sameach!

I really can’t believe it’s Chanukah already! I feel like we just took down the Sukkah (or did you?!)

I’m so excited to join in the 2012 Hanukkah Blog Party! So many fantastic bloggers, so many incredible recipes. Please take a look around and be inspired! The best part? One in 6 chances of winning a prize! See below for giveaway details! FYI – at the last blog party,  one of my readers WON!

My idea was for printable Chanukah decorations and gift tags! Here is a PDF (TheKosherHome_ChanukahArt) for you to print at home! I’ve made picture frame sized images for 8×10, 5×7, 4×6, and 3×5 – mount them on blue cardstock if you’d like or as is! There is also a banner, gift tags and circles for the tops of cupcakes, or stick them on Chanukah Gelt! Go ahead – embellish with glitter and rhinestones! Ideas are as endless as you imagination!

Go ahead – feel free to send me some pictures of how you use these printables in your home, or at your Chanukah Party! I can’t wait to see! Some ideas are below!

    • OMG! That’s so cute! My daughter, T.J. chose to use the one she made in school last year! It was a real winner!

      What’s the best way to store them?

  1. Pingback: KITCHEN TESTED – Sweet Steamed Buns with Date & Raisin Filling

  2. We also enjoy lighting the menorahs our kids made at school, play group, or painted at home. My son’s birthday is around Chanukah so it is Presents Season at our house. I am glad that he loves the dollar store toys and puzzles I picked out just as much as his fancier bday presents. :-)

  3. we’re decorating w/ salt dough dreidels and menorahs this year – part of my try a different craft for each holiday thing I am trying to do

  4. What creative ideas and great designs! I love the personalised Chanukah gelt!
    We place a table in front of the window and display all our Chanukah mementos for all to see.

  5. We have those sticky gel things that we put on the front windows. This year my kids helped hang them and made their own “designs” on the front door. Everyday has been a struggle for me not to “fix” it ;)

  10. These are beautiful.

    We decorate the house with whatever my kids have come up with and a quilted table runner one of my Grandmas made for us when we were newly married. And our menorah, of course!
