DIY Light Bulb Jar Hanukkah Menorah

This project is a unique take on sand art.  I only used purple sand but you can add many layers of different colored sand for an even more striking work of art!  

Hanukkah traditions that are practiced everywhere include lighting the Hanukkah menorah, spinning the dreidel, and eating fried foods.

I love this holiday because we celebrate it with family.  It is fun lighting the Hanukkah menorah and watching the candles flicker in the evening light. This year I wanted to create a little more festive fun thru this glass light bulb DIY Hanukkah Menorah project.  It makes a very unique statement and will look great in my bay window!

*Hanukkah begins Tuesday December 16 and ends the night of Wednesday December 24.


1.  Glass light bulb jars - 8 small ones and 1 larger one (I bought mine from Hobby Lobby)
2. Jar of sand -pick any color(s) you want (any craft store has this)
3. Tall Hanukkah candles 


unscrew the tops off 
(do not throw away the tops because you can re-use them to hold the sand in the jar for future years)


Add the sand to each jar filling them up as high as you want 
(Use a funnel; I made one out of paper.)


Place a candle in each jar.

NEXT, place them somewhere special, spread them out or clutter them together, and enjoy the look and flickering of the lights!

Where to place your glass light bulb Hanukkah Menorah:

-Fireplace mantel
-Wall shelf
-Table top

Happy Hanukkah!!
