Hanukkah Gelt Tree

 Happy third night of Hanukkah to my Jewish friends!

Hannukah Gelt Tree - Yesterday on Tuesday #hanukkahcrafts #hanukkah #hannukahdecor

My kids are all about the dreidel and gelt (chocolate coins). This year, I thought it would be fun to make a little Gelt Tree so they kids could play dreidel and get their sweets fix each night. If you aren’t familiar with the how to play dreidel, here’s a great explanation from Taste of Home.

Supplies: Tulip Shimmer Sheet (gold), Star of David punch, 8 small muslin bags, dreidels, number stickers, chocolate coins and a small wire tree or white branches would be pretty.

One little bag for each night of Hanukkah.

I put two cute dreidels in the first bag.
