During October, I saw several 'gumball machine' crafts...
using clay pots & bottoms and bowl vases.
I even started one but was stuck for what to use as the handle on top.
Here are some of my pictures from before Halloween.
Stacked (but not glued) and ready to go....
well..it didn't go far.
Until today (yesterday)...I decided to use it for Hanukkah.
I spray painted it blue and found the perfect knob!
'HAY' it's a dreidel :)
It's filled with jelly beans (that were to be used for another Hanukkah project)
that the husband apparently is addicted to.
Let's just say I will be getting more jelly beans today!!!
And since Hanukkah involves eating, gifts and parties..
our annual Hanukkah party is next week - here are the invitations.
My standard Microsoft Word invite printed on labels on top of cute card stock.
I'll be sharing some of the treats we'll have at the party.
One of those goodies will be the dreidels from yesterday's post.
Dawn at Not Just A Mommy was sweet enough
to add them to her Happy Hanukkah post.
Check it out, you may see the printables from Frog Prince Paperie again :)
I'm still working on our 'holiday' mantle
(once I get more jelly beans, it will be done)
and a festive wreath for our door.
I share it all with you soon.
