Below are a collection of Succah creative Succah crafts by the incredibly talented Sara Rivka Dahan.  Enjoy!

Decorating a Succah can be done by the family and can be lots of fun. Here are some crafts I did on my site

 colorful succah 

Get to work on your Succah plans and decorations now!  A Succah is a great place to experiment with bright colors and bold patterns that you might be afraid to use in your home, so have fun and pile on the color!

  Succah polyhedrons


I mentioned that I had created a version of the polehedrons using stencils. Now that we've lowered the Succah decorations boxes from the attic, I've finally been able to photograph them to share with you! Please don't be daunted by the diagrams, once you get the hang of these they really aren't difficult. To see how to make it click here


  minimalist succah


An Elegant and Minimal Succah Feels Like A Palace! These are photos of my Succah last year. Quite different from the colorful and ethnic Succah I showed you yesterday, and refreshingly simple yet elegant. Two Moroccan lanterns wired with warm flourescent bulbs, sheer gold-striped fabric hung in strips between the rafters and a few other decorative touches make a minimal yet complete Succah.  To learn how to make it click here.  

  succah craft vase

Recycle A Large Can And Make A Shatterproof Vase! For the next few days I\'m taking a little break from presenting hanging decorations to show you a few really nice decorative projects. The first one is so simple, with great results that you\'ll never throw out (if you live in Israel where there\'s no can recycling to speak of) another tin can, especially not large juice cans and tall Materna (baby formula) cans!

Foam Succah Decor

Make Beautiful Decorations from Foam Forms The technique involved in these decorations is simple enough for even a three year old, yet with possibilities so vast that all the artists in the family won\'t be able to resist contributing. These photos show only a small selection of what we actually made that year, as due to a camera malfunction I was left with only a few examples.  See full article here.


Succah Sunburst Mirror

Make A Recycled Book Page Sunburst Mirror! Now I can finally cross recycled book page projects off my to-do list! There\'s just one problem this project was so quick and fun, I think I may just have to make some more! It took me a total of two hours, including taking photos for the tutorial and a few other distractions, so all things considered, I think that\'s pretty good for a masterpiece like this!  To learn how to create thisclick here.

  Paper Mache Frames

Make A Unique Paper Mache Frame! Looking for a special project to feature on one of the walls of your Succah? Looking for a unique frame to display a copy of a beautiful old photograph? Paper mache may be your answer! Paper mache has often been used by cultures around the world for creating charming handcrafts. It\'s sculptural qualities and simple supplies lends it well to craft projects for kids or those wishing to create something special with minimal investment of supplies.
