  • Pipe cleaners
  • Hot glue gun
  • Yellow pom-poms
  • Cardstock
  • Scissors


  1. To make the menorah card: To make candles, twist two dark blue pipe cleaners together. Separately, twist two light blue pipe cleaners together. You will have one thick pipecleaner in dark blue and one in light blue. Now, twist these together to get two tone chunky candles. Cut the pipecleaner into thirds or quarters, based on desired candle length. To make the candle flame, diagonally snip a yellow pompom on the left and right hand side with a pair of scissors; hot glue flames to candles. Now make the shamash (middle) candle, then assemble candles on card and hot glue. Complete the menorah by adding a pipecleaner base.

  2. To make the Star of David card: Make an equilateral triangle using a single pipe cleaner; repeat with a second pipe cleaner. Stack both triangles on one another to shape a Star of David. Glue together, then glue to card.
  3. To make the dreidel card: Shape pipecleaner into a dreidel; glue to card. If desired, cut small pieces of pipecleaner and add the appropriate Hebrew letters to the dreidels.
