5 Easy Shavuot Crafts

shavuot crafts

There is something about Shavuot that seems to demand crafts.  Usually they revolve around flowers.  I remember when my children would bring home the tissue paper flowers, or little decorated vases to use a centerpiece for the festive holiday.  I guess it is because it is at a time of year when everything is in bloom and we want to enjoy the bounty of the season. But it is also because Shavuot is an agriculture holiday and very much connected to plants.  We share a few favorite Floral Crafts in this article including a flower pony holder, napkin ring, tissue flowers and decoupage plates, oldies but goodies that never get boring.  Here are some new ideas
