9 candles

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)
menorah candles

Steps:

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.

4. Next, paint the clay bases if desired.

5. Insert candles for a simple and easy menorah.

Note: You can make a menorah from many other materials: carved wood, used thread spools, simple votive candleholders, etc. Just use your imagination.
