Passover Matzah Vase26th March 2010

Passover Matzah VaseYou can buy handmade Judaica to celebrate the Passover holiday, or sometimes it’s just fun to make things!  I’m always up for an arts & crafts project, so check out this handmade matzah vase I made yesterday.  I would have shown it off yesterday, but it was rainy and windy all day here in New York, so I couldn’t take an outdoor photo.   Now – I can’t take credit for the idea.  I was at my sister-in-law, Elaine’s house, last year for Passover, and saw this awesome vase.  I was sure she bought a glass matzah vase.  Then she showed me how simple it was – 4 pieces of matzah glued together with a real vase placed inside holding the flowers.  Isn’t that clever?

Since it’s a little bit more difficult than it seems to put together, here are some guidelines:

  1. Use very straight matzah with no curves in it.
  2. Glue together 2 pieces at a time with Elmer’s glue.  Do not attempt to glue all 4 pieces together at the same time.  It will collapse over and over again until you give up.
  3. After the 2 sections dry, then combine them to form the box.

HAVE A VERY HAPPY PASSOVER!!!!
