Handmade hamsa wall hangings


Making hamsas (see also here) can be real fun for you and your kids. You might also give a home-made hamsa as a gift.

First, we prepare a sketch of how the hamsa will look like, then we draw and cut out a paper template. The template is used then to cut out the clay base. Any other modelling material works as well, of course. The process is described in my Hanukkiyah post. Usually we decorate using beads and decoration stones, or just paint.
