Make a Hanukkah Banner

Add a pop of color to your Hanukkah banner with this easy DIY.

If you go to the store to buy Hanukkah decorations, I’ll give you two guesses what color they will be. and blue (and maybe a little white with a touch of gold). Let’s go a little crazy this year and accent the traditional blue with pops of the rainbow.

Let your kids dig into the Arts & Crafts Library to make this garland as colorful as they’d like. Pink letters? Why not! Orange beads? Go right ahead! It’s time to break the rules!

Hanukkah Banner Materials

What you’ll need from the Arts & Crafts Library:

- Scissors

- Glue

- String

- Pipe cleaners

- Pom-poms

Let’s Make It:

Hanukkah Banner Step 1

1. To make the cursive words, twist 2 to 3 pipe cleaners together and form the letters. Add pipe cleaners as you go if needed.
