A few years back, when I first started blogging, I wrote a guest post for My Poppet; a crafty lifestyle blog that I was totally crushing on at the time! The project was called My first ever Christmukka Tree, and seeing that Hanukkah + Christmas both coincidentally coincide this year, I thought it was appropriate to re-share my step-by-step crafty tutorial!
It all stared with a mini pine tree I picked up from the “oh so amazing” Design Files Open House. This was my first… ever… tree! I come from a Jewish family and was just a little too excited to get my hands on one of these babies!
After officially welcoming the prickly beast into my home, I cleared the dining table and quickly got brainstorming on how to keep the theme “Kosher” for my Jewish roots.
I decided to decorate the tree with mini dreidels, iconic and totally appropriate for Hanukkah!
And for the finishing touch, I twisted a foil Star of David for the cherry on top!
Ta-da! The finished product! Isn’t she just the cutest? My first ever Christmukka Tree!
Wishing all my loyal readers a happy, healthy and most fabulous holiday season, however you’re celebrating!
