Your menorah deserves a place of honor, but eight days of dripping wax pose a danger to anything lying beneath it. Protect these surfaces with subtly decorative sheets of glassine that you can change daily.
Begin with a square of glassine measuring about 2 inches wider than the spread of the arms of the menorah.
Fold the square in half and in half again. Fold the resulting small square in half along the diagonal so that the three closed edges align. Fold once more along the diagonal so that the closed edges align with the longest edge.
Cut a scallop shape along the shortest edge, through all layers. Open, and smooth flat.
