With three more nights of chanukah remaining, there's still plenty of time for chanukah crafting, and this little dreidel napkin ring craft requires only very simple supplies and is fun for all ages. And you can certainly save the results to enjoy again next year! My daughter and I made 120 of these for a chanukah gathering just before chanukah, so you can certainly make ten or twenty!
So get out those cereal boxes you've been saving (?) and some simple supplies, and see if you can add your own twist to this simple project. Not in need of any napkin rings? Use these shapes to make a holiday garland instead by simply tying them together, or lacing them on a ribbon. Or even better, make a garland from the napkin rings after the party!
- recycled cereal or other light weight food boxes
- a 3" scalloped craft punch
- a tiny flower craft punch
- hole punch
- contact paper
How To Make A Scalloped Circle Dreidel Napkin Ring:
Punch scalloped circles from cereal boxes using a craft punch. Cut dreidel shapes from contact paper, and punch a small flower in the middle using a small flower craft punch. Apply contact paper dreidel to base, punch two holes opposite one another, and thread a ribbon down through one hole, across the back, and up through the second hole to make the ring portion of the project. Tie in a bow or knot around napkin, and voila, you've made a fun addition to your party.
How To Make A Dreidel Napkin Ring:
Simply draw a dreidel (that's in proportion to the size of napkins you'll be using) on a piece of cereal box cardboard. Cut out that dreidel and use it as a template to trace around to create dreidel napkin rings that all look basically the same. Decorate with small flowers punched from contact paper, punch two opposite holes in the dreidel, and thread ribbon through holes as described above. Enjoy!
And of course, this little idea could be used for just about any holiday or occasion, just replace the dreidel with the symbol, number, or letter of your choice!
