Miniature quilled Hanukiyot

Tiny quilled Hanukkah Menorah with candles

I think these Hanukiot (Hanukkah Menorah's) are my last Hanukkah crafts for this year. I'll be giving them to friends and family, hope they'll like my miniature handmade gifts.

Miniature Hanukkah Menorah's

I created tiny Hanukiot in a variety of colors and designs, often combining quilling paper strips of two different tints in one piece. Height of the Hanukiah with candles is only about 2 inches (5cm), the rest are between 1 1/8 and 1 1/4 inch heigh (28 to 32 mm).

Wishing you a Happy Hanukkah, and be sure to see this gorgeous quilled Chanukkiah by Sonya Appel!

Thanks everybody! Your comments are so encouraging!

Cathy, unfortunately, I can't send you instructions for these right now. Click on the pictures to zoom in and try to figure out what elements they are made of. There's nothing complex about them, just bell-shapes, teardrops, etc.

It's so beautiful!! :-) Can you please tell me how you made the candle?

Thanks for the compliment :)
Make a trapezium with two right angles like this, but about twice as high (I'm talking about the ratio, not the actual size). You don't need the part at the left side, beyond the dashed line. Roll it starting from the longest parallel side, that is from b to a in the diagram. Hope this helps.
