For those of us that love to be creative and go all out, this is one of the best times of year! BUT then there are those of us who are not as creative but still want an easy project to get into the Chanukah mood or an easy project for the kids to do to help decorate the house. Here are a few creative, fun and easy to do ways to bring the light of Chanukah into your house!
I was lucky enough to be asked to do a Chanukah buffet table for Elegant Impressions Magazine! (Free copies are available in my store for you to take). I incorporated a TON of creative options into it but you only need to pick one to make a difference!
Sugar Cookie Decorating Ideas
Step 1: Bake round sugar cookies and allow them to cool
Step 2: Cover them with a solid coat of white royal icing and allow them to dry
Step 3: Place the remainder of the royal icing inside of a piping bag with a #2 or #3 tip and pipe out designs such as a menorah, dreidel or numbers
Step 4: Allow them to dry completely and then spray them with edible spray paint!
Step 1: Bake candle shape cookies and allow them to cool
Step 2: Place white royal icing inside of a piping bag with a #1 or #2 tip. Outline the entire cookie and divide the sections, such as the flame from the candle. Also create lines on the candles either going straight or at a diagonal.
Step 3: Separate your royal icing and color them, place them into piping bags or squeeze bottles.
Step 4: Working with 1 color at a time, fill in the desired areas. If you want while it is still wet pour on some sanding sugar and let it stay. Once the royal icing dries shake off the excess sanding sugar.
Step 5: Work with the second and third colors, allowing them time to crust up, if not completely dry, between colors in order to prevent bleeding.
