Celebrate the Festival of Lights with this beautiful, handmade, flameless menorah made from simple household materials.
3 paper plates
Begin by folding one of your paper plates in half. Place glue around the edge and seal it.
Next we will decorate and seal the edge of our plate with washi tape.
Decorate and embellish your menorah as you like with washi tape or any other materials you may have.
Take the other two plates and cut the center out of each one.
Just as you did with the first plate, fold the small center cut outs in half and glue them together.
Using your ruler, find the center of each smaller circle. From that center point measure down one inch and make a mark.
Make a slit from the edge of the plate to that mark. These half circles will become the feet of your menorah.
Using your ruler make two marks approximately two inches from the center of your larger plate.
Cut one inch slits from the edge of your larger plate in to the marks you just made. You will slide the smaller circles into these slits creating legs for the menorah.
To create the candles we will cover clothespins like we have done with my locker clips.
You can add sequins or create flames out of washi tape to complete the candles.
Stay cool this summer!
