Hanukkah Projects

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Brighten a Hanukkah gathering by making shiny tabletop decorations with simple materials and easy techniques.

Table set for Hanukkah
Elevated table runner

Center Stage

To make a raised wooden table runner, first cut moulding (#161622) with 45-degree miters on the ends to fit the edges and ends of a 1 x 12 x 48 board. Glue and nail the moulding strips in place. Paint the runner with Valspar metallic spray paint (Brilliant Silver shown). For the feet on the underside of the runner, use epoxy to attach four cabinet knobs (#231698) inset about 1 inch from the corners. Estimated cost: $52.

Place-Card Holders

Create place card holders by spray-painting wooden florets (#39139, #35234) with a metallic finish (Brilliant Silver shown). After the paint dries, center the backs of the smaller ones on the fronts of the larger ones and hot glue. Then hot-glue the tips of dowel pins (#81601) to the lower center of the back florets so the holders lean at a slight angle. Touch up the pins with spray paint. Estimated cost: $17.65 for the first one (add $10 for each additional one).

Mantel menorah candles

Mantel-Top Menorah

Create a menorah arrangement using individual candles. Measure pieces of foil tape (#135512) long enough to wrap around real or battery-powered candles plus about 4 inches. Fold the tape roughly every 1/4 inch to create an accordion pattern. Remove 1/4 inch of the paper backing, wrap the tape around a candle, and press the adhesive strip against the tape to hold it in place. Make bases from 3/4-inch wooden discs (#81608) glued in circles slightly larger than the candle diameters. Then glue on medallions (#39139, #35234) made by duplicating the place card holders minus the pegs in back. Estimated cost: $125 for one set.

Napkin rings

Letter Perfect

Cut foil tape (#135512) into strips about 8 inches long and fold to create an accordion pattern. Cut about 1/4 inch of the backing from one end and adhere the tape to itself in a circle. To make letters, cut pieces of wire (#62933) about 12 inches long. Use needle-nose pliers to bend the wire into the shapes of letters. Work freehand or use script fonts on a word-processing program for inspiration. Estimated cost: $8

Treat-serving stand

Tower of Treats

Let cookies or other table treats play a starring role. Start by spray-painting only the back of a clean, dry plate. (Avoid painting the top.) With pliers, remove the screw from a furniture foot (#295979). Then apply at least two coats of Valspar metallic spray paint (Brilliant Silver shown). Use epoxy (#74809) to fasten the top of the foot to the bottom of the plate. Estimated cost: $12 + plate.
