Try DIY Menorahs with Olive Oil Lights: Cover the top halves of 8 small jars with masking tape. Using etching cream, etch bottom halves according to product directions. Remove tape. Fill jars halfway with water. Add 1/8 inch olive oil. Drop a floating wick into each jar, cork side down. Use a birthday candle in a small, narrow-necked bottle for the shamash.
A fancy Hanukkah menorah can be expensive. But you can light the Night for a few dollars. Dollar store candles, glasses and BLUE stones or white stones. (Not sure why they used green here!) and you're set. You could even use river rocks. Just be sure the candles are securely set, and not too close to the wall!
<b>This year The Festival of Lights has to <a href="http://www.buzzfeed.com/christinebyrne/thanksgivukkah">share it's thunder</a> with Thanksgiving.</b> But that doesn't mean you can't still celebrate with these crafts.
