For this inexpensive and easy Hanukkah craft simply apply a thin layer of glue to the entire dreidel and roll the dreidel in the glitter to coat all sides evenly.

Paper Star Garland
An easy and inexpensive homemade Hanukkah decoration that is fun to make is a star garland. For this project you will need several sheets of scrap booking paper in various colors and patterns, a hole puncher, ribbon, a pencil, and scissors.

Start this project by tracing cups, and bowls onto the paper. Cut out the circles that remain and fold the circles in half. Now cut a few V shapes into the side that is not folded and unfold the circle to see your star. Experiment by cutting different size V shapes; you can also glue smaller stars on top of larger stars for a nice style. When you have enough stars for your garland simply punch a hole in the top point of the stars and string them on the ribbon.
