Since 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.
