DIY Menorah Headband

Light up your Hanukkah with this easy DIY.

Hanukkah is a holiday that suffers from a lack of cute, wearable gear— antlers, santa hats, and elf ears do not coordinate with the dreidel-playing spirit. But as a holiday that’s super festive and magical in its message, it’s about time we change that. Enter, the menorah headband...a quick little craft that you can “light” as the eight days progress.

Start with a simple, drugstore headband, and grab your Arts & Crafts Library for the rest. This project will take you less than 15 minutes, but the adorableness will last forever!

DIY Menorah Headband Materials

What you’ll need from the Arts & Crafts Library:

- 9 felt strips

- 9 gold paillettes

Other tools and materials:

- Scissors

- Hot-glue gun

- Thin headband

Let’s make it!

DIY Menorah Headband Step 1

1. Choose a felt strip to be your center candle, or your shamash. Fold it over the headband and hot glue each side together. Trim the top into a point.
