Crafters love washi tape for many, many reasons, but toward the top of the list has to be the fact that the crafting supply is so versatile. It can hold up a piece of your child’s artwork in one use and decorate a book in the next. It can also be transformed into just about anything, including symbols of the holiday season. If your washi tape stash offers a variety of festive colors and patterns, have your child put those rolls to use making a piece of their very own menorah art.
- Washi tape rolls – nine different colors/patterns
- Plain cardstock in white, yellow and brown
- Glue stick
- Petal paper punch
Start creating your menorah with the shamash in the center. From there, add slightly shorter pieces of washi tape on either side until you have four on both sides. Space the tape pieces slightly apart from one another so that you’ll have room for the candle flames in the next step.
This petal paper punch from EK Tools doubles as a great flame maker. Punch out eight smaller flames with your yellow cardstock and glue into place with a glue stick. If you don’t have this paper punch, that’s OK. Simply cut out unique flame shapes by hand.
To complete your menorah art, create a base for the washi tape candle holders with a slim piece of brown cardstock.
Try framing your holiday art and display to greet guests during family and friend gatherings!
