Hanging Kinara

Lighting the candles on the kinara is an especially joyous time. Our holiday wall hanging makes it easy, and safe, for even the youngest child to participate.

On the first night of Kwanzaa, your child will "light" the black center candle, which stands for unity. Each day, another candle is lit, alternating from left to right.

What You Need:

The 3 green candles symbolize freedom and the 3 red candles represent the struggle for freedom.
  • Scissors
  • White glue
  • Yellow, green, red, and white felt
  • Hole punch
  • Velcro
  • 2-foot piece of cord
  • Pattern for kinara stair step

Instructions:

1. Download the free pattern for this project. (Downloading requires free Adobe Acrobat software.)

2. Make candles. Cut three 3-1/4 x 1-1/4-inch candles from red felt. Cut three 3-1/4 x 1-1/4-inch candles from green felt. Cut one 3-1/4 x 1-1/4-inch candle from black felt.

3. Make flames. Cut nine flames from the yellow felt.

4. Using downloaded pattern, cut base. From the yellow felt, cut out stair-step pattern to create your kinara shape.

5. Assemble kinara. Take the flat white banner and place on a flat surface. Glue the kinara yellow felt in the middle of the white banner.

6. Attach candles. Glue the three red candles to left three stairs. Glue the black candle next to the red candles. Glue the three green candles next to the black candle.

7. Add Velcro. Cut seven small Velcro strips and glue one side above each candle. Glue the matching Velcro strip to the back of each flame.

8. Make hanging cord. Punch two holes at the top of the banner for the cord to hang the banner. Tie the ends of the cord and then the kinara is ready to hang.
