chalk painted white manzanita menorah

We covered a manzanita branch and faux ferns with chalk paint to give them a plaster-like finish, then secured the ferns onto the branch, along with brass flower-shaped taper holders and accent leaves. We positioned the candles organically: The shammash has its place of prominence atop a bend, and a few are nestled closely together in a hollow.
