From home décor ideas to making dreidals out of milk cartons, and crafty menorahs, here’s our selection of some crafty and pretty inspirations for adding eco friendly creations to your Hanukkah celebrations.

DIY Menorahs

Menorahs are synonymous with Hanukkah, the festival of lights. No matter how you do it, a menorah always has 8 candles, and reminds us of the miracle of the Hanukkah lights. Recycled bottles, baby food jars, driftwood and so on can be upcycled into really creative menorahs for your celebrations.
