Hanukkah Dreidel Garland Craft

Hanukkah garland

Celebrate Hanukkah with some festive décor! Instead of buying holiday decorations, the kids can help you craft your own homemade ones. A dreidel garland is easy to create, but still adds a splash of holiday spirit. As a bonus, this art activity helps your child to learn basic shapes. After the crafting is done, hang the dreidel garland up on a wall, around a window or on the edge of the dining room table.


  • Card stock paper
  • Cardboard
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • A hole punch
  • Ribbon or yarn


  1. Make a dreidel template. Use one edge of a piece of card stock paper to make four straight lines, creating a square. Size the square according to your needs.
  2. Use the straight edge of the paper to draw a triangle at the bottom of the square.
  3. Draw a thin rectangle coming from the top of the square (to make the dreidel’s handle).
  4. Cut the template out.
  5. Use the template to make as many dreidels as you want.
  6. Cut the dreidels out.
  7. Using the marker, write one letter (the Hebrew letters for Nun, Gimmel, Hay and Shin) on each dreidel.
  8. Punch a hole on each side of each paper dreidel.
  9. Thread the ribbon or yarn from dreidel to dreidel, tying it at the ends.
  10. Display the Hanukkah craft as part of your holiday décor!
