Make a menorah using battery-operated tealights and some pretty scrapbooking or holiday paper. [project: JoAnn Fabrics]. There's a list of suggested materials. You could definitely find some substitutions that are less expensive than their suggestions.

This would be a great safe menorah for kids to light, since the tealights look like fire but aren't!

Project Estimate:

  • Battery Operated Tealights, 5 packages of 2, $5
  • Two wooden I's (seriously, that's what they used), $2
  • Pretty paper, $1 or on hand
  • Blue paint, on hand

Total cost: $8
