Whether you don’t currently own a menorah, or would simply like to put your own personal spin on this year’s Hanukkah celebration, we have three lovely designs you can easily recreate yourself without diminishing the ritual or dignity of the occasion.

Metallic Bottle Menorah
Bottles of different heights spray painted a shiny silver make a fun, modern menorah. A sprinkling of dreidels along the base adds color and whimsy, while tall white candles form an elegant peak in the middle.
Wood Block Menorah
Blocks of wood topped with candles and embellished with gold Stars of David make a lovely menorah when all lined up. We had a length of wood cut into individual blocks and then stained each one for effect, but you can use pre-made, pre-stained blocks in the wood of your choice. A taller candle in the center gives this DIY menorah a focal point.
Numbered Votive Menorah
Both colorful and quaint, this DIY menorah features votives labeled with numbers and gets a lift from beautifully wrapped boxes in varying patterns. Kids will have no trouble keeping track of what night it is, and adults will love the crisp, clean look of the boxed risers.
