Hanukkah Tissue Paper Cut Outs
Tissue paper’s brilliant colors are perfect for Hanukkah decorations. Think light….bright, happy…..and my friends, the idea that Hanukkah is a blue and silver holiday is a commercial fabrication, so please don’t let it hamper your creativity as you prepare for the festivities. These are dreidels and candles, but any shapes or even numbers or letters would look great, which means that this craft could conceivably be done just about any time of year.
Glasses, vases, or hurricane lamps
Cut strips of tissue paper of varying heights, but all the same length. I measures the diameter of the vase/hurricane and cut my strips just a bit longer.
Fold strips accordion style, and cut out shapes on the fold, such that the shape repeats itself across the strip once unfolded.
Layer strips such that contrasting colors appear within the cut out shapes. Adhere with glue. Note: due to the fact that tissue paper is quite thin, my dots of glue were visible. If you'd like to avoid this, brush on glue with a brush.
