candle wax adapter to hold candles in placE

Clay and Wire Menorah
Materials and Tools:
one box of air-dry clay, any color
armature wire or a coat hanger
dowel, the size of the candles
acrylic paints and brushes (optional)
1. Form clay into nine pieces, or cut the whole block of clay into nine pieces, leaving them plain.
2. While clay is moist, form wire into a "holder" for candles. Do this by twisting wire around a dowel. Test to make sure the wire is snug around the candle base, then insert holder into clay.
3. Allow clay to air-dry around wire candle bases.
