is almost upon us! And with it comes gold, gelt, potatoes, and presents. As you prep for the festivities and light your menorah
, we have one finishing touch for your holiday decor — this adorable DIY dreidel piñata. It's super easy to make and takes less than an hour to whip up. Let’s get started!
Materials + Tools:
templates part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4,
printed on cardstock
crepe paper streamers
Print out templates 1 and 2. Then cut out the square and the triangle.
Trace the shapes on the cardboard and cut out.
You'll want five squares and four triangles.
Assemble your dreidel by taping together the five squares to make a cube-like shape. If you want to fill your dreidel with candy (or gelt!), cut a little flap on the top.
Make the handle by rolling a scrap of cardboard into a tube and tape on top of the dreidel.
Tape together the triangles to make a pyramid-like shape and then tape the cube and pyramid together.
Fringe your streamer. You’re going to need a lot! Fringe, fringe, fringe!
Starting from the bottom of dreidel, glue the fringe onto the cardboard. Keep gluing until you finish one side. Trim the edges.
Continue gluing fringe on all the sides until your dreidel is completely covered. Don’t forget the handle!
Print out templates 3 and 4 and cut out the letters: Nun, Gimel, He, and Shin. Glue the paper letters on each side of the dreidel.
Fill with gelt and you’re all set!
Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made you out of crepe paper!
