Hanukkah Dreidel Crafts & Decorations

From party favors and festive decorations to beautiful handmade cards, we’ve got a few dreidel-inspired crafts for you today that are sure to be a hit!

Hanukkah-Dreidels-Hero

During many Hanukkah celebrations, it’s common for families and friends to gather together and share a meal. If a dinner party is on your schedule, these stunning place cards are an easy way to add a quick touch of elegance to your evening. Impress your guests by pairing The Lights of Hanukkah stamp set with some silver tinsel embossing powder, and by the end of the night they can have a meaningful memento to take home!

Simply decide on the card size, and select a few cardstock colors you’d like to layer, stamp and emboss, and voila! You’ve created a beautifully elegant piece of personalized artwork for your guests to treasure, even after the celebrations are over!

For our next two projects, we kicked things up a notch to 3-D papercrafting and created a gorgeous dreidel-inspired garland and treat box that are a great way to include some unique flair to your Hanukkah festivities! To make these two projects even easier, our talented artists put together this Cricut Design Space™ file for you to use to recreate them.

To string the cardstock dreidels into a garland, poke small holes at the base of the dreidel posts, thread a long piece of silver embellishing thread through them, and use a glue pen to hold the dreidels in place. This way, you can maintain the spacing on your dreidels and still keep it simple.

Since Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights, we wanted our dreidels to act as miniature lanterns, so we covered the cut-out parts of our dreidels with vellum paper. While the light does not shine directly through the vellum, it does reflect and amplify the light that hits the small dreidel lanterns. To maximize this effect, we recommend displaying your garland with a string of lights, turning it into a truly breathtaking home décor piece.

This treat box is a fun way to delight your guests and give them a little something sweet after supper.

By creating a 3-D dreidel with a removable lid, you are left with a treat box your friends and family are sure to love! Complete the surprise by filling it with mints, chocolate, or any of your favorite candies.

  1. I simply enjoy spending time with family. After whatever gathering and meal, we all sit down together and play games (board, card, etc.). The relaxed time allows us time to reconnect and get to better get to know each other — it’s amazing how many times a sibling will say “I didn’t know that.”

  2. One of our family’s favorite traditions is to each find our perfect Christmas tree and then cut them down. There is a hay ride and hot chocolate and now that there are grandbabies too it is better than ever!

  4. Yay! A Hanukkah craft! So cute! I can’t wait to show my customers this project! My favorite holiday tradition is to pick up a peppermint mocha coffee and take a drive to see the Christmas lights with my family! We have a huge neighborhood here that goes all out decorating!

  5. My favorite Hanukkah tradition occurs during our family Hanukkah party. Each household brings their own menorah. After dinner, we set all of them on the table, and a representative from each household lights the candles while everyone recites the blessings. Then our family patriarch plays guitar and leads us in singing traditional Hanukkah songs as we watch the candles burn down. ❤️

  9. I love spending time with friends and family, reflecting on the past year and making plans for the coming year. Cooking is also a favorite part of the holidays since most of the family is involved in some way or form.

  10. My favourite Christmas tradition is decorating my Christmas tree with my son and his girlfriend. Afterwards we go for dinner to celebrate his birthday, and on our way to the restaurant we take a drive through the neighbourhood to see all the lights. It reminds me of when I went into labour and we drove to the hospital, seeing the whole neighbourhood lit up for Christmas!
    Thank you for creating the beautiful stamp set ❤✡

  12. My favorite tradition is Christmas Eve at my husband’s Parent’s house. We all come early and help finish cooking and setting the table. Then we sit down to a lovely meal and enjoy each other’s company. After dinner we all gather around the tree and take turns opening each other’s presents and talk. Then we all have dessert before we take the children home for bed.
