With the fabulous Jewish holiday of succot beginning next Sunday night, well the pressure is on to get crafting! We dwell in our succahs for 7 days (8 days outside Israel) so filling it with beautiful crafts is certainly a great thing to do! One of the simplest things to do is to craft with paper, though if you think it might rain, see if you can take these ideas and make them from something rainproof!
For starters, I just love these quilled paper ornaments, that I really want to try using craft foam! There are so many possibilities, and even youngish kids can get the hang of it, or if you choose to go the easiest route and staple everything together, so you can make a bunch together. For complete instructions check out my quilled paper succah decorations.
These paper accordian stars can be made is so many sizes, and really deliver a nice visual touch when done in bright colors. For complete instructions check out my paper accordian stars for the succah post.
I just love these little 3D flowers, which like I always say, can certainly be made much larger, or why not make a few sizes. For complete instructions, check out my paper flower globes for the succah post.
If you are looking for something super simple, well these lanterns will save the say, love them! For something a bit more artful, you could make the lanterns out of sheets of watercolor paintings that the kids (or you) have whipped up in your favorite colors! For complete instructions check out my paper lanterns for the succah post.
That is it for now, will be back with some more inspiration from the archives, while I try to juggle all those things on my plate right now, especially with Yom Kippur coming tomorrow night!
