Free projects to celebrate Hanukkah or Kwanzaa


Here are a couple more variations on the “All Tied Up” project from the book, Countdown Calendars. For details on how to make this fun ribbon calendar, click here to see the Christmas version I shared last week.

I wanted to create something a little different to supplement the traditional menorah for counting the eight days of Hanukkah. So I came up with a festive ribbon calendar using silver, gold, and blue ribbons. Then I added 8 bags of chocolate coins, one for each day of the festival of lights. For an extra decorative touch, I made paper tags with the Star of David.

KwanzaMy artistic friend, Vanessa Cole, made this Kwanzaa variation using fabric instead of ribbon (why didn’t I think of that!). I just love the way it turned out. She used about 1.5 yards of fabric cut into 2 inch strips, getting about 3 ties per strip. The principles for each day of the celebration are written on tags… such a festive way to share the meaning of the Kwanzaa holiday!

Festive ribbon calendars can be created for any special occasion. Send us a picture of your creations…we’d love to see what you come up with. We hope everyone has a wonderful and festive holiday season!
