Joyful Jewish

Front door chanukiah

Posted on: 10 December, 2010

I admired my neighbours’ door wreaths late last year, and decided we needed something cheerful and seasonal as well.

Our front door has a wire mesh security screen which is absolutely perfect for attaching this chanukiah and magen David, which I made out of pipe cleaners.  I just twisted them together and used extra pieces to lash it to the screen.  The unlit candles all go on at the start, and then each evening of Hanukkah we add an extra “flame”.

The chanukiah is made of the fluffier pipe cleaners, the “candles” from striped ones, and the “flames” from gold metallic pipecleaners, as is the magen David. (Can you tell I love these things?)  I made this last year and put it away in my little (but growing) stash of Hanukkah decorations, and both my daughter and husband were so excited to see it back up again this year.   We will leave it up until the end of the year.
