With Hanukkah just around the corner, starting on November 27th, we thought we would share an easy alternative to the traditional Menorah. Some of us may be away to college or starting their own home and may not have everything they used to for the holidays. This spin on the menorah is something anyone could put together to decorate their home, or a holiday party.
We recently put together a small inspiration shoot for a Hanukkah cocktail party for Everyday Party Magazine! We’re super excited to be able to work with Everyday Party Magazine to feature crafts that anyone can put together for a amazing Hanukkah party.
For those of you who would like to put together a similar Menorah for their upcoming holiday celebrations or Hanukkah decorations, here’s some simple how to instructions:
– Modge Podge
– Foam paint brush
– Wine or beer box
– Various 9 bottles
– Pie tin or box ( for extra glitter)
1. Collect various bottles, clean, and take of labels. (We soaked some to take off labels and had to use Goo Gone on a few labels as well)
2. Take clean bottles and modge podge the bottom half of the bottle, or however much of the bottle you’d like covered in glitter. We wanted a paint dipped look so we put the modgepodge on uneven.
3. Once you’re happy with where the modgepodge is, sprinkle your choosen glitter all over the bottle. Hold the bottle over a box or pie tin to catch any stray glitter.
4. Shake bottle over pie tin or box for any loose glitter.
5. Place bottle upside down in beer or wine box to dry. ( Can try setting up right but it might stick to the newspaper or surface it dries on)
6. Repeat with the other bottles.
7. Once dry place on table, mantle, window, etc. with candles in each bottle. (we had whittle down some the candles to fit in the bottles)
