Tampon Menorah

Hanukkah - festival of lights, now the festival of feminine hygiene. Pull up on the "wicks" to light these menorah candles.

Materials

  • Nine Tampax tampons (or similar brand with cardboard applicator)
  • Styrofoam
  • Hot glue gun
  • Silver metallic spray paint
  • Acrylic paints
  • Mod Podge crafts sealer or Elmer's Glue
  • Scissors
  • Utility knife
  • Waxed paper
Instructions

Cut styrofoam to form base, and paint blue. Cut a small block of styrofoam, paint and glue in center of base to elevate the center candle. Unwrap tampons (saving wrappers), remove tampons from applicators and spray paint applicators silver.


Cut tampons in half and keep the part with the string. Cut inch-long sections of the paper wrappers and twist into flame shapes. Paint yellow and orange.


When flames are dry, brush with Mod Podge or 3 parts Elmer's Glue mixed with 1 part water. Dry on waxed paper. Glue flames onto ends of tampons and strings. Trim strings a little above flames.


Stuff tampons back into ends of applicators, pushing down on the top of the tampon with the end of a paintbrush, until the flame is inside the applicator. Use the smaller end of an applicator to press into styrofoam and make evenly spaced indentations for the "candleholders." Fill each circle with hot glue and press candleholders into place.  Pull up on "wicks" to light, so the flame and part of the "candle" sticks up.
