DIY Josef Frank Inspired Menorah by David Stark
Chanukah is most often a blue and white affair, sometimes with a little silver thrown in, sometimes a little gold. But in ruminating on the holiday, we couldn’t help but ask ourselves: “Why does it need to be?”
Now, we know that the bold, floral prints of Josef Frank are, perhaps, not the most likely of Chanukah inspirations, but that’s exactly the point. We turned to a pattern we love entitled, “Vegetable Tree” as inspiration for this vibrant menorah – the perfect pop of color as we move into the darker winter months! We chose colored papers and floral shapes influenced by the motifs and palettes found in the print and are thrilled to share this how-to with you!
We opted to make our menorah base. But, it would be equally as charming to use a classic menorah you already own and wrap the wire stems around it. Or, pick up an affordable one and paint it! (Thank you to Just Scandinavian for loaning us this great Josef Frank fabric!) ––David Stark
