DIY : Traveling Neon Menorah

Neon painted do it yourself hex nut menorah designed by Naftali StNeon painted do it yourself hex nut menorah designed by Naftali StNeon painted do it yourself hex nut menorah designed by Naftali StSince my bohmerian self is nomadic by nature, I created this easy to make traveling Hanukkah menorah by super-gluing pairs of 1/2″ hex nuts, and coating them with both a layer of Krylon white primer, and a few light layers of Rust-Oleum fluorescent paint.

BTW: Most 1/2″ beeswax Hanukkah candles should fit the 1/2″ nuts perfectly. If you try making these as crafts with your children, then use 3/8″ hex nuts which would better fit the traditional, children’s assorted candles which you should easily find seasonally stacked at you local market or hardware store.

NOTE: To evenly paint the glued nuts and prevent drip marks; suspend them from a string outdoors, spray one even layer of primer and 3-4 light layers of your preferred color. I would suggest wearing a mask or towel around your mouth while doing so.
