DIY Hanukkah Menorahs for Kids and Adults
In my home, I love DIY projects and making my own household products, so I thought why not put together a list of ways to make your own menorah.
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 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.
