All three menorahs are made with round vases purchased from a dollar store with a big square vase as the shamash.
These snowflakes are decorative seasonal items that we just pushed into the vases. (The same idea could be applied with different items that fit into your color scheme or theme.) The big vase is filled with cellophane. To cover the big vase, we simply took a glass from a 4×6 picture frame, placed it on top, and added a candle. The tea lights in the small vases are placed on top of 3D snowflakes.
The bottom vases are filled with craft beads that expand in water, and the small vases on top give the impression of menorah oil cups, and are filled with water and food coloring. They have floating candles at the top.
This was made by putting flowers in water with cellophane to help keep their position. This also gives an “ice” effect to the water. The top of each candle was made with tea lights, surrounded by cranberries. The top of the shamash is a simple candle on a piece of glass from a 4×6 picture frame.
