MAKE A MOLD

Down­load our mold pat­terns at BHG.com/ Hanukkah2018. Trace pat­terns onto sten­cil film, cut out, fold, and tape edges with pack­ing tape. Make eight of the smaller molds and one larger mold for the sham­mash (the can­dle used to light the oth­ers).

MIX THE CE­MENT

Fol­low man­u­fac­turer’s in­struc­tions to mix white out­door ce­ment. Di­vide into sep­a­rate bowls and stir in grout pig­ment to color ce­ment. (We cre­ated two shades of blue and left one bowl white.) Spoon small amounts of each color into the molds, leav­ing ¹⁄₈" space at top. Slowly swirl (don’t mix) col­ors us­ing a skewer. Ex­per­i­ment by sprin­kling grout pig­ment di­rectly into the molds.

FORM A HOLDER

Plug one end of ¹/4" cop­per cou­pling with foam ad­he­sive cir­cles. Sub­merge cou­plings foam side down half­way into the ce­ment.

Let dry 24 hours be­fore re­mov­ing the mold.
