Easy DIY: Paper Tube Gift Menorah

Here’s an easy and fun craft for Hanukkah. Amy Rose Designs has a post for a toilet paper roll menorah. I took this an extra step and put a little gift in each “candle.” When you open it, the tissue paper “lights” it.

*tissue paper
*small gifts
*a glue stick
*tape

Tape the twisted end to the bottom inside of the tube.
