5 Secrets to More Color at Home

Five Ways to Make a Menorah


Holy moly, I can’t believe Hanukkah starts next week! While I don’t celebrate the holiday, part of Jeff’s family does, so today’s five things is dedicated to the menorah! I actually really wanted to craft a menorah this year but time got the best of me. Instead I’m sharing five menorahs, and projects I think could be adapted for one, that a few others dreamed up! You’ll have to put on your thinking cap for a few of these, and take a step away from tradition, but you can do it!!

1. DIY Plastic Animal Menorah: If you can find an item that a plastic animal hasn’t been turned in to, you should win a prize! I happen to love these giant glittered animals turned menorahs. Yes, it’s quite non-traditional, but oh so fun!

2. DIY Geometric Menorah: These are actually place card holders but ever since I saw them I thought about how cool they’d look adapted as geometric candle holders. Throw a bunch together and wam! A menorah!

3. DIY Wooden Block Menorah: I talked all about things to do with wooden blocks here, but did ya know they’d also make a great menorah!? Perfect for stacking, color-blocking and making you’re own. Gotta love a versatile option!

4. DIY Ombre Dipped Candles: These are birthday candles but supersize them and stick them in pretty sprayed candle holders for a seriously stunning menorah. Ombre never looked so good!

5. DIY Glitter Vase Menorah: Another idea I’m asking you to get creative for! These glitter vases are perfect for my glitter-filled mood currently and I bet you could easily swap flowers for candles (Just make sure they’re far enough away from the edges) for a sparkly option.
