These fun wine goblet ornaments for Passover were not made from just any plastic, but rather from extra plastic lids that I found floating around while cleaning out my cabinets for Passover! And I'll be honest, I actually blogged about using plastic lids for making crafting shapes two years ago, though never got around to sharing the results of my little crafting endeavor! As I was attempting to start cleaning out my studio, I came across these ornaments that I hung on our dining room table chandelier two years ago, and of course had to share them with you!
Yes, dear readers, Passover isn't just about matzo, it also happens to be about wine (grape juice), as we drink four cups during the seder at specific points in the telling of the Jewish people's exodus from Egypt. So decorations depicting the four cups of wine is perfect!
- plastic food container lids, like from ice cream for example, which are usually blank on the under side
- good sharp scissors
- puff paint or bead paint, in applicator bottles (tulip)
Draw your shape on a piece of cardboard, cut it out and trace around it to transfer your design to the plastic. Apply designs with puff paint, and add additional decorative elements such as sequins and beads if desired. Do be aware that plastic is not necessarily the greatest base for making long lasting items with kid safe glue, as things tend not to stick so well, but that's okay, just handle with care, and enjoy!
