hacks for the holidays

two little hacks to get us in the festive mood.

a polarvide santa suit
sabine from germany sent me this some time ago but i decided to keep it for the holidays. “for a christmas party, we made out of 2 red polarvide throws and a litte bit of plush, a santa claus costume. it was a cheap and fast way to have a costume.”

see more of sabine’s santa.

just hammer some tacks into the center of the metal cups in the hallare candle holder to hold the candles upright. after placing in the candles, add some white rocks (florera) for stability.

    You wouldn’t want larger candles. They would take forever to burn down.

    Unique menorah =] Personally, I’d like larger diameter candles & more earthy-colored gravel or sand to match the wood grain.

    The menorah is a great – only it’s not kosher. The shamash candle needs to be higher than the other 8 candles. Sorry, it’s the former Hebrew school teacher in me – otherwise it’s a great idea.
