e are in the midst of Chanukah, the beautiful Holiday of Lights. I have always admired the wide variety of menorahs available from dignified and antique to marvelous and modern. From formal to fun, these beautiful candelabras are always a delight.
This year, I decided to add a little modern flair to our holiday table with a modern menorah! It was as easy as One-Two-Bead.
It started with a very simple idea and nine round candles. To make your own, you'll need 9 candles, 1/2" blue ribbon, 1/2" double-sided tape, 1/4" double-sided tape and some Pennywise glass microbeads.
To begin, I measured the ribbon around the candle and cut it so that it overlapped slightly. I then cut 8 more strips of ribbon the same length.
I then attached the 1/2" double-sided tape to the back of each piece of ribbon.
I then attached the second smaller piece of double-sided tape to the front, centering it in the middle of the ribbon.
Next, I took the protective coating off the small ribbon and poured microbeads over it, being careful to catch all the extras in a tray.
All that is left to do is to attach the ribbon around each candle.
Once complete, arrange all 9 candles onto a decorative plate and you are done!
As with any decorative candle, do not let it burn down to the decoration and never leave candles of any kind unattended!
May the season of holiday lights bring cheer and warmth to your home!
