With a few nights of Hanukkah still left, there's plenty of time to whip up some great recycled and hand made gift packaging! So get out all those cereal boxes you been hoarding, open them up and have fun stamping and stenciling simple shapes. The results are always so much fun, especially when you assemble your packages, fill them and add some ribbons or bows or pom poms of some kind!
I love the idea of these stenciled numbers, to represent the 8 nights of hanukkah, and one could even do just one number for the night on which the gift is given!
- acrylic craft paint
- cereal and other food boxes
- number stencils
- "magic eraser sponge" (sfog pele) or any dense sponge that can be easily cut with a knife
How To: The dreidel shapes were made by simply cutting a dreidel shape (minus the top peg) from magic foam, great for cleaning and great for crafting, as it cuts so very easily! Dip the sponge in paint and stamp away. Add details with a paint brush. One could also use a potato!
Happy Hanukkah crafting, and hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with some great shots of these boxes all ready for gift giving!
