Paper dreidels for Hanukkah

Today I want to share a quick and easy project - paper dreidels. There are plenty of templates available online, I used this template that I found on Design Megillah website.
I printed the template on white and c\blue cardstock, cut out and assembled following the instructions on the template.
Small scraps from Crafting Jewish Style Hanukkah kit were perfect for decoration the dreidels. I omitted the paper handle and used stacked buttons instead.

I finished the dreidels with a light coat of silver mist. It is difficult to see in the pictures but it gives them a nice festive sparkle.

Paper dreidels can be hung from a string, used as a place setting for Hanukkah party or serve as a favor box. Or they can be just piled in a nice bowl. This is a great project to do with the kids. They will love decorating their own paper dreidels.
