Jewish Crafts for Kids: Stained Glass Hanukkah Menorahs




The girls and I have been really enjoying making Hanukkah menorahs for the past few days. These are some pictures of some of the menorahs the girls made. T asked me to cut out some blue dreidles and Jewish stars so she could decorate her menorah. Of course D also wanted to decorate her menorah but she wanted pink hearts, pink stars and pink circles. Does anyone want to try guess what D's favorite color is! Below is a tutorial on how to make them.


Draw an outline of a menorah and candles on a piece of black construction paper with a white or light colored pencil. Then cut out the candles and the menorah with a craft knife.


Cut out rectangles of silver tissue paper that will fit behind the cut out menorah and cut out pieces of colored tissue paper that will fit behind the cut out candles.


Using a glue stick glue the tissue paper to what will be the backside of the stained glass. Make sure that you put glue around the cut outs so that when you trim the paper your tissue paper will stayed glued to the construction paper.


This is what the menorah will look like when you are done gluing the tissue paper to the back and you turn it over. Cut off the excess black construction paper leaving a border of black construction paper approximately 1/4 inch.
