Sukkot Apple Garland Craft

apple garland

Sukkot traditionally starts five days after Yom Kippur. With roots in the autumn harvest, this Jewish holiday is filled with fall flare. To celebrate, families build a sukkah (a small hut built outside, where meals are eaten). While these Sukkot huts aren’t exactly fancy, you can make them festive with a few DIY decorations! The kids can create this fall apple garland to string along the inside of the sukkah. You can also use the garland after the holiday ends as in-home “Welcome Autumn” décor.

Materials:

  • Red or green craft foam sheets
  • Scissors
  • A marker
  • A hole punch
  • Green pipe cleaners

Instructions:

  1. Fold the craft foam in half, book style.
  2. Draw half a circle on the foam, starting at the fold. Repeat to make more semi-circles – each one will be an apple.
  3. Cut the semi-circles out.
  4. Unfold the craft foam to reveal full apple shapes.
  5. Punch a hole at the top of each apple.
  6. Thread a pipe cleaner through the hole. Twist it to create two ‘bunny ear’ shapes, making leaves.
  7. Attach the apples together to make the garland. Cut a few pipe cleaners in half. Wind the first one around the loose end of the apples leaves. Twist the other end around the next apple’s pipe cleaner. Keep going until your child creates a string.
  8. Hang the garland from the top of the sukkah!
