When looking for ideas for PVC pipe projects, I came across a project for a menorah. Now we aren't Jewish, but one of our friends is and we've been invited over for Thanksgiving-akah this year. So I thought it only right to make a present for our friends hosting.
Now it's not very traditional, but not much is that is made from PVC, right?
So to make this, I used 1/2" pipe, 6 T joints, two elbow joints, an X joint, a joint that had threading on one side so I could screw it into the metal base that I got and I hand cut an arm off a T joint to do the make shift coupler for the center candle. Each joint is held together with a piece of 1/2" pipe in about 1/2" in length.
When the paint was dry, I spray painted it all with a royal blue paint.
And I bought the candles at Target. They fit pretty much perfect in each hole which was great since I didn't measure the candles before hand. It was at the very last second when I went looking for candles that I started to panic that I wouldn't find any that fit properly.
But there it is. My PCV pipe menorah. I hope it will be a nice addition to our Thanksgiving-akah dinner!
