i found the bear for Christmas, he was holding a stocking. i found the bunny for easter, he was holding a carrot (i know that a carrot isn’t religious).
to make any holiday your own, just find a way to change things you see & love. Even if they are for a holiday you don’t celebrate. i hot glued the dreidel to the bear & the chocolate gelt to the bunny. that is all it takes.
the angel was given to me by my mother. She is the Angel of Courage. i found the dog (really a fox, but geez, he looks like my solid white husky) at Homegoods. So this is me & my dog, Blue. to make the Angel into a Hanukkah decoration, i just found this cool card & put Liquitex gloss gel on it. & and stuck it into her wings.
when its time to put away the holiday decorations, i will put the bear & bunny (i’ll take the chocolate off) in my box of Hanukkah decorations. when i take them out next year, i will have forgotten what i had made. and find joy in finding them again.
