Five pointed Star stencil
Stencil shape for a five pointed star. From Wikipedia Commons.

Okay, why am I putting up such a simple shape as a graphic? So you can make patriotic t-shirts for this weekend if you are so inclined!

What you need is this stencil, freezer paper, fabric paint, blank t-shirts, and an iron. Oh, and this freezer-paper stencil tutorial on Hettie Schott’s Celtic Mommy blog!
Make some star-spangled shirts for Memorial Day!!

I’ve been hearing a lot by crafters around the net about shirt stenciling using freezer paper. It looks easy and has surprisingly sophisticated results for so humble a technique. But don’t take my word for it, check out this freezer-paper stencil tutorial on Hettie Schott’s Celtic Mommy blog. [Maybe make some Hanukkah t-shirts with the DPDs from a couple of days ago.]

This isn’t the only wonderful ideas she has on her blog, so even though she’s taking a hiatus from it, check out the blog! Learn to recycle broken crayons into fun shaped bigger ones, make your own clog-busting pore-cleaning ‘strips’, and make scrubbing bath salts! Hettie has been having lots of fun with her kids! Check it out!

Peace,

Chanukah – the Jewish Festival of Lights – begins at sundown tonight. On the calendar, it starts on the 12th, but because, in Jewish tradition, days begin at sundown on what we secularly would think of as ‘the day before’, it starts tonight at sundown.

So, in honor of the Festival of Lights, here is an image of a hanukiah, which is the proper name for the nine branch menorah used at Chanukah. The center candle is the ‘lighter’ candle, and is used each night to light the other candles. One candle is lit on the first night, two on the second and so on until the last night, when all eight candles are lit.

With that image, I also have the image of what is transliterated into English as Chanukah (or Hanukah) in Hebrew.

These particular images would make good stencils, perhaps for making paper for wrapping presents or to put on gift bags.  I found them on Wikipedia Commons and they were listed as public domain / “no restriction on use” by their creators. To download the images full-sized, click on it.
