DIY – Make Your Own Hanukkah Menorahs Homemade Craft for Kids and Adults
Hanukkah 2016 begins the evening of December 24 and ends January 1. Are you ready? Do you have your Hanukkah menorah? Whether you have your own already, need a new one, or want to start a new tradition, a homemade Hanukkah menorah will be a cherished item.
In some families, each member lights their own menorah every night. My kids have their own menorahs that my parents gave them a few years ago.
When it comes to homemade menorahs, there are all kinds of options with different materials, sizes, and shapes. Here are a few of my favorite ideas for making your own Hanukkah menorah at home. Some of these craft ideas are very easy while others may need adult supervision and expertise.
Though there are several edible and non-functional menorah craft ideas out there, these are real, usable menorahs.
