Chanukah Decorating with Gold Gelt

Got gelt? Not the real coins, or the chocolate. This gelt is plastic!

Plastic coins are inexpensive and easy to find at most party stores. Because they are so lightweight they're a snap to work with. I used some white string and a hot glue gun and glued the coins (back-to-back) to create a garland across the mantle. I love how they sparkle in the light!

Another way to use these is to hang them from the ceiling, doorway or chandelier above the dining table...

I found my coins at the party store.
You could also use colored ribbon in place of the string, swag them along a staircase or surround a door frame. 
Don't have the time to make this yourself? The gelt garland is now for sale in my Etsy shop!
