DIY Clothespin Menorah
Dec 8, 2016
Here is a fun Hanukkah craft you can make with your kids, or you can make for them to use. Here is what you'll need:
- a piece of foam core or thick cardboard
- sparkly pipe cleaners
- hot glue
- gold paint
First, cut the shape of your menorah out of thick cardboard or foam core. You can use the edge of a plate to trace as a good guide. Also be sure to cut two little half circles — these will be the legs/base of the menorah.
Paint the base with gold paint (or the colour of your choice). Let it air dry.
While your base is drying, have some fun painting your clothespins! NOTE: To make the middle candle of the menorah taller, just snip an extra piece of foam core and glue it to one of the clothespins.
Once your base has dried, take whatever ribbon you'd like (we chose to stick with gold) and use it to cover the edges.
Now it's time to add some flame to the candles. Grab some sparkly pipe cleaners and cut them into little strips, approximately 3.5 inches long (gold) and 1.5 inches long (red). Twist the gold piece into a flame shape, and then twist the red piece into the base.
Glue the flames to your candles, and you're ready to go! Pinch them into place and your menorah is ready!
