Chanukah Blessings Photo Garland

Chanukah Blessings Photo Garland craft

Chanukah is a time to be thankful for the miracle of light. Fill a holiday photo garland with pictures of things for which your family is thankful.

  • 1.

    The festive time of Chanukah is ideal to remember the ways that your life is blessed. Gather photos and other paper items to fill eight small photo frames. For example, if you are grateful for your visit to Israel, you could include a small Israeli flag.

    With Crayola Scissors, cut eight papers the size of each frame interior. Label each piece, such as first night and second night, using Crayola Markers. Slip one rectangle into each frame.

    Next think about how you want to decorate your frames with Crayola Model Magic® compound. You could make symbols of Chanukah such as a dreidel or pick up on themes from the photos you will use. Flatten sheets of compound and cover the frame edges. Shape three-dimensional forms on the frames. Roll coils and beads. You can even cut Model Magic with scissors.

    Assemble your Model Magic forms to create dynamic frames. Be sure to leave space in the center to display the picture. Model Magic compound dries to the touch overnight and air-dries completely in 2 to 3 days.

  • 5.

    To decorate the garland, thread large Model Magic beads along a ribbon long enough to display the eight frames. String the decorated frames on the ribbon. Add Crayola Glitter Glue sparkles. Air-dry the garland.

    Each night of Chanukah, remove one label and insert the blessing you chose. Share the meaning of each with your gathered family.
