Hanukah Decor

Hi, everyone! It’s Aliza here. This is my first blog post since the summer, so it’s nice to be back here.

Here’s a little tidbit about Jewish holidays: They follow the lunar calendar, so they fall on different dates of the Gregorian calendar each year. Which just means that every once in a while, you are sitting around thinking, “Oh, it’s only November, nothing big is happening too soon.” And then you look at your calendar and realize, “Oh, Hanukkah is just three weeks away!”

When I had that realization recently, I was working my way through my November Clique Kit, and I was struck by the thought that all the beautiful blues in this kit would make for some lovely Hanukkah decor.

My first step was to paint an old mirror frame that I had lying around. (The reason this mirror has been lying around, by the way, is that my children managed to break all the glass squares. )

Because of the yellow tone of the paint, I brushed some blue mist on the frame. It looked terrible. So I painted another coat of white over the blue, and dabbed some of the paint away.

As you can see above, I used a dreidel cut file with the We R Memory Keepers patterned papers to create the artwork for the frame.

I decided to go really simple, in the end, with just a touch of embellishment. Because, really these papers are just so beautiful.

I think I still have just enough of my kit left to make another Hanukkah decor project or two. (Perhaps a miracle will happen, and I will have enough paper for eight days of projects!)
