Festival of Geeky Lights for Eight Crazy Nights

by Megan S.

Star Wars-Disney Princess Mashup Menorah

Chanukah falls on December 20th this year which means you have a little over two weeks to get your DIY on and make the geekiest homemade menorah EVER.*  So, with that in mind, here are eight awesomely nerdy ones to get your creative juices** flowing.

*I doubt you could ever top my lumpy clay menorah that looked more like a failed golem than something celebrating the yearly festival of lights that I made in first grade, but you can try.

** Feel free to substitute Manischewitz for creative juices.  It's seasonally appropriate and 11% alcohol by volume!

Lizard Menorah

Rhinestone Rhinoceros Menorah

Threepio Menorah with Lightsaber candles
Hello Kitty Menorah
Steampunk Menorah (According to the creator it has seven vacuum tubes because it's a temple menorah.)
Star Trek Menorah
Game of Thrones Menorah (Just kidding.)
BONUS! The adamantium menorah cracks me up.

  1. Love these = although the Pez and the steampunk ones were my favs. :)

  2. Don't have a pic but a friend has the dinosaura-menorah. Each candle has a different dino.

  3. Omg I love the Hello Kitty one!

  4. Nara, You've gotta get a photo!

    Bonnie & KA- They are great, aren't they? My favorite, however, is the sparkly rhino. SO MUCH PURPLE GLITTER. I need it.
