Use eight decorative candle holders as a stand in for a traditional menorah. Use a larger, separate "Shamash" candle to light the votives each night. Position the votives on either side of the Shamash.
Table arrangements look best when accessories vary in heights. A small glass cake pedestal holds the Shamash of this DIY menorah. Dress up the candle with a crystal holder and chocolate gold coins known as gelt, the Yiddish word for money.
