Chanukah Wall Hanging Craft

Chanukah Wall Hanging Craft


You know all those useless catalogs that stuff up your mailbox before the holidays? Well, it turns out they’re not always so useless. Especially when you’re stumped in the crafting department and you’re looking for some inspiration. The Land of Nod is a great place to find it. I was skimming through their overpriced catalog when I happened upon this idea. And when you have the Hanukkah decor squashed into a quarter of a page (against a several page spread of Christmas decorations) you’ve got to learn to be creative.  When I saw the countdown-to-Christmas calendar, I knew I had to make a Chanukah version with draidel pockets for each night. The pockets are perfect little holders for Chanukah chocolate coins, the real (green) stuff, draidels and little gifts. You can even use the center ribbon to personalize it for your family or child.

Hang this fun holiday wall hanging behind the menorah for some festive Hannukah decor.

Happy Crafting & Happy Chanukah!

  1. Thank you so much for this great idea! It’s so difficult to come up with festive decorating ideas for Hanukkah and this is both adorable and functional. I made a larger version of it so I could include small toys in each pocket. I also sewed it all as felt glue and hot glue just do not hold up to the abuse my 3-year-old dishes out. All in all it probably took about 6 hours to make, but it will last for years. Now if I could just keep her hands out of all the pockets on the first night. :)

    1. I took a small strip of felt and glued the sides down on the back of the wall hanging. Look at the first picture in the last row of pictures to see how.

  2. Thank you so much for your great Chanukah wall hanging project. I made 4 of these for my grandchildren to enjoy. I did sew the felt plus I used wool felt from feltonthefly so that it might hold up for years to come. Thank you again for a very special present idea!
