Hanukkah Candle Craft Materials


  • 8 paper tubes. I used left over vinyl tubes, but paper towel or toilet paper tubes are perfect too. 
  • Small pieces of red, orange and yellow tissue paper for the flames.
  • Blue paint and paint brushes.
  • Small plate for the paint.
  • Scissors

Hanukkah Candle Craft Step 1

Start by cutting 8 paper tubes to the same size. If you are using toilet paper tubes you won’t need to cut them down.

Next, pour a little paint onto a small plate. We mixed two different colors of blue paint. Then, paint the outside of each tube.

Allow the paint on each tube to dry.

Use tissue paper to make candle 'flames'

Cut the tissue paper into small squares and layer two sheets of each color together. Make 8 stacks of tissue paper, one for each tube candle.

Display the candles on a rectangle tray with some blue and silver ornaments or bells. Then, add tissue paper to candles on each day of Hanukkah.

You’re all done! I hope you enjoyed making your Menorah candles for Hanukkah.
