Yep, those turkey feathers were re-purposed to make menorahs, too! Here's how:
2 egg cartons
Colored Duct Tape and or Paint
1) Cut the end off one end of the egg cartons so you have nine candle holders. We used the cut off piece to add height for the Shamos.
2) Tape the two cartons together.
3) Enlarge each candle holder by snipping the tip off.
4) Paint or decorate the base.
5) Add "candles" (colorful magazine pages tightly rolled and taped, ours used to be "turkey feathers")
6) Use duct tape to secure candles to the base
7) Add tissue paper flames
We ended up making two of these because they were so easy and fun. Camille painted one of the bases and we used colored duct tape to decorate the other one (have I ever mentioned how much we love colored duct tape?). These aren't super fancy and they probably won't last forever, but they sure are cute. In addition to re-purposing a formerly recycled craft project, this also turned out to be a safe and colorful way to add menorahs to the kids' bedroom.
