Okay, so I posted this menorah in earnest on my blog a couple years ago. And this year, someone named it a “crime against Jewmanity.” Yeah, it’s kind of a craftfail.
Lemme give you the backstory: I was writing one of my first assignments for a kids’ craft site, and the holidays were rolling around, and I wanted to create a Hanukkah craft. Since I had toddlers, I wanted to make a menorah that was kid-friendly because I knew I wouldn’t let my 2 year-old anywhere NEAR open flames, tradition or not. This was supposed to be a touchable menorah that kiddos could play with.
Anything with lemon yellow pipecleaners is automatically kind of a craftfail (if you take it out of the context of a kids’ craft site!)
What you can’t see in the photo is that the base of the menorah is made from a recycled (kosher) macaroni box. How’s that for tackfastic?
