Ah, Sukkot…of all the Jewish holidays, it’s one of the most fun and festive and, with sukkah construction and decorating, probably the most artsy. Explore your creative side and get in touch with nature with these autumnal art projects. Any of these crafts will aid in decorating your sukkah or freshening up your interior décor. And they’re fun, of course!
Citron Sun Catchers
Capture the essence of the elusive citron with these sun catchers. Template included.
What better way to connect with the earth than being inspired by it? Grab acorns, twigs, bark, leaves, etc., and create something new. Hang them in the sukkah with twigs and twine for extra points.
Mimic the gorgeous flower glass ceiling of the Bellagio! The installation was created in 1998 by the amazing Dale Chihuly. “Flori di Como” is made of approximately 2,000 pieces of handblown glass and took two years to complete. Lucky for you, you can mimic this masterpiece for your sukkah roof with a pack of multicolored tissue paper in less than an hour. Kind of.
Practice mindfulness by coloring these (free!) gorgeous adult-style coloring pages. Hang them in the sukkah after and reclaim a sense of peace when you look at them.
Hula Hoop Chandelier
This neat project might not be best for the little ones but they can still admire the effects. Whoa.
Revamped Paper Ball Lanterns
Découpage the rainbow! Grab your tissue paper, some paper ball lanterns, glue and water and get to work.
Tabletop or Model Sukkah
This craft is cool because you can use anything you want. Shoe box. Tissue box. Cereal box. Legos. Dolls. Real plants. Fake plants. Graham crackers. Twizzlers. So many opportunities to create epic sukkah models. Have fun with it!
