Nature Menorah

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Keep the Hanukkah lights aglow with this rustic homemade menorah.


  • A tree bough, 2 inches thick
  • Smaller branches
  • Nine bottle caps
  • Glue
  • Hanukkah candles
  • Greenery


  1. First, find a tree bough, at least 2 inches thick, and several smaller branches to act as steadying arms for the main branch.
  2. Next, glue the bottle caps on, upside down, along the top of the branch. One, the shammash, which is used to light the other candles, should be higher than the others. The remaining eight may be placed at one height or varying levels.
  3. Decorate the menorah with greenery.
  4. For the first night, you will need one candle for the shammash and one for the first candle on the right. Melt the wax on the bottom of each candle and stick it to the holder. Add a new candle for each night.
