It’s traditional to decorate the house with flowers and greenery in honor of Shavuot.


To make an arrangement like this, you will need:

  • Mason jars
  • Enamel paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Sandpaper
  • Raffia
  • Scissors
  • Skewers
  • Assorted flowers


Step 1:

Paint your glass mason jar any color you want. Let it sit for 24 hours, and then bake it in your oven at 350° F for half an hour.

When the jar has cooled, let it sit overnight.


Step 2:

Rub the sandpaper over the glass, giving the mason jar a distressed look.

Rinse the jar, so the paint “sand” washes off.

Wrap raffia around the lip of the jar and tie it in a messy bow.


Step 3:

Fill the vase with the flowers of your choice.

To make the cute little Shavuot decorations, download any image from Google Images. Just type in the image you’re looking for, and when you find one you like, copy and paste it into a Word document. Resize it and print. It’s that easy! Cut out the image, attach it to a skewer and voilà! You’ll have a cute accessory for your arrangement. You can also attach the image to the raffia around the jar. That would be a great way to indicate place settings at the Shavuot table.
