Each night after lighting the candles and saying the blessing, my daughter clips one of the little packages down and opens to reveal a gift.
This was super simple to make. Just find a smallish branch that you like. I usually keep a little stash of branches to be used later for projects. Then gather 8 gifts...for example, I've included some candy, nail polish, lip gloss, and a gift card (for the 8th night!) Then you simply bundle wrap the items in muslin, old book pages, and brown craft paper. I used stamps to number each package and then tied them to the branch with string!
I'd love to hear if you give this project a try, either the Christmas version or the Hanukkah version. It certainly is a lovely addition to the holiday decor.
Until next time, Lovebeams to you!
