The holiday of Succot is on our doorstep, (it starts Wednesday night) and fortunately for me all the decorations I labored over last year are still in good condition, phew! While my kids want to spend time today whipping up a bunch of fun paper decorations, I hope to have time to make some more soda bottle top flower mobiles (above) to add to the collection. As far as ideas for some last minute crafting, here are some projects that I would recommend:
These newspaper print and tissue paper flowers are stunning, and will make a huge statement.
These revamped paper lanterns are also fairly quick to make and so festive!
Here is the reminder that we really should have been doing all of this during the summer, sigh. But nonetheless is you can get the beads and craft foam together you could still whip up a bunch of these craft foam lanterns fairly quickly.
A fall bunting with golden apples is simple and sweet. Rags, rags and more rags could be great as chair garlands, or I've been thinking of making pom poms or tassels with rags......go raid that linen closet!
Spheres made from bracelets are gorgeous but a bit delicate for this stage of the game, why not try this idea with large hoops of some kind?
Accordian folded paper medallions always look great, and can be done with starched fabric as well!
Thats it, gotta run, the Succah needs decorating, and gotta cook for a crowd. Enjoy your holiday preparations, and just remember, no matter how you decorate the succah, once the holiday starts the space always feels truly special regardless of the deoorations!
