The simplest menorahs in my collection are the ones made from tea lights. They are some of my favorites, as well. I have simple clear glass tea light holders from Ikea, and each year I pick up colorful candles to fill them. These travel well to a friends house, and perk up a mantel.
Imagine my delight when I found these squirrels at HomeGoods! Of all the menorahs I’ve made (dinosaur menorahs, Doll shoe menorahs, lego menorahs, glow stick menorahs….) this simple squirrel one might be my fave! That’s a shot glass in the center, giving the middle squirrel a lift. See my Turkey DIY Menorah here.
