Happy third night of Hanukkah to my Jewish friends!
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.
Punch 8 stars out of the shimmer sheets.
Place one star on each bag.
Following packade directions, iron on the stars.
Then add the number stickers.
One little bag for each night of Hanukkah.
I put two cute dreidels in the first bag.
Then the corresponding number of chocolate coin candy in each numbered bag.
The kids can play dreidel with the coins each night.
It makes a pretty display.
This is adorable! I love it! It’s a cute idea for us because it ties in with Christmas a tiny bit with the tree too. Definitely bookmakring for the future!
I love it, Malia. So very fun and festive. Thank you for sharing it with us. :)

This is perfect Malia. I do not celebrate Hanukkah but after dating Jewish man for many years and working with so many Jewish couples on their weddings I was so fascinated with Hanukkah
Awesome Idea!!! I was looking for a crossover for the traditional Advent calendar. THANK YOU!!!
What a wonderful idea – so beautiful!
