Home for Chanukah Eclectic , Bridgeport

The letters are chip board letters purchased from Lobby Hobby. I painted them with gold craft paint and glued a wood skewer to the backs which I also painted gold. They are sitting in glass votive cups filled with salt. The word "Miracles" is appropriate since the story of Chanukah is this: a small group of soldiers (called the Maccabees) defeated the entire Syrian army!

9. Craft store letters + gold paint + skewers. This crafty project makes use of superinexpensive materials, yet the results are totally elegant. Scoop up small letter forms and gold craft paint, find that packet of skewers left over from your last summer barbecue and get to work. A dab of hot glue is all you'll need to attach the letters to skewers; place the skewers in votive holders or small mason jars filled with salt.

Metallics are one nonintrusive way to add a little festive holiday flair. Gold, silver or copper holiday accents pair well with almost any color scheme. White is also a peaceful, festive, yet still neutral accent color for almost any holiday decorating effort. Try replacing multicolored tree lights with sparkling white lights to give your room a more elegant feel.
