Paper-Strip Apples/Hanging Fruit Decorations
Instead of the paper chains you see in many sukkahs, try switching it up by making adorable paper strip apples and hanging citrus to string along your sukkah ceiling for a fruity touch. Idea from Fireflies and Mudpies and Buggy and Buddy, where you’ll find instructions for two types of fruit paper decorations!
These yarn dreamcatchers are sweet in their childlike simplicity. The yarn-woven hearts and stars will add bright dots of color dangling from the s’chach. If they last through the end of the holiday (and don’t get rained on), move them into your child’s bedroom as a fun hanging mobile. All you need for this project is some yarn, scissors, and pipe cleaners. Visit CraftGossip and Yarnspirations (for free downloadable patterns).
What to do with all the empty cardboard egg cartons after you’re done cooking for Sukkot? Make flowers, of course! Just cut them, paint them, add a pom pom and paper straw. They’ll look so pretty as a centerpiece for your sukkah table! Instructions at I Heart Arts N Crafts.
Autumn Mason Jar Candles
Mason jars are awesome year-round, but especially fun to turn into sukkah decorations. For this craft, you’ll need spray paint (or thick craft paint) and either a stencil or leaf shaped decal that will peel right off when the paint dries. Wrap the tops with twine, and you’ve got the perfect candle holder to bring magic to your table. Instructions at Sugar Bee Crafts.
Toilet Paper Roll Lanterns
This crafty lantern idea offers a fun twist on the traditional sukkah twinkle lights. Save a bunch of empty toilet paper rolls, cut in half with an exacto knife, and punch holes in them. Then glue tissue paper to the insides and when dry, mount onto string lights for a fairy-lit sukkah. Source: Just Crafty Enough
