Mix and match

Print out the Dreidel template onto lightweight cardstock. Cut out template using scissors. Fold Dreidel body along dotted lines and secure with glue. Fold Dreidel top along dotted lines and attach to the body with glue.

Get creative with your garland by adding sparkly stars and snowflakes or other festive ornaments (this is a good option if you want to make a secular winter garland — craft stores will have loads to choose from).

Thread together

Thread your ornaments along the twine or ribbon. Use your glue gun to secure in place so the ornaments are evenly spaced along garland.
