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!!!!
