I hope everyone has been having a wonderful Passover! This is a quick craft that will help you to create elegant Passover accessories for your dolls from recycled materials. I thought you might enjoy making this craft to celebrate the end of Passover! I cannot tell you how excited I will be to reunite with my glorious Challah next Shabbat!
Supplies you will need:
– Acrylic paint/puffy paint
– 1 Pen
– Paint brushes
– Colored construction paper/scrapbook paper
– Colorful/metallic candy wrappers
– Mod podge (optional)
– 1 Medium-sized lid of a plastic container
– White felt or white paper
Step 1: To create the Seder plate, begin by cutting a circle of equal circumference to the recycled plastic lid from construction paper.
Step 2: Draw small, evenly spaced lines around the edge of the construction paper circle.
Step 3: Using a pair of scissors, create small cuts along the small lines drawn.
Step 4: Spread Tacky Glue onto the plastic lid. Then, use your fingers and the edge of your scissors to help press the construction paper circle securely onto the plastic lid.
Finally, your seder plate should look similar to this:
Step 5: To make Charoset, mix red and brown acrylic/puffy paints together in one of the bottle caps. A layer of mod podge may be applied if desired.
Step 6: In another bottle cap, mix red and a little bit of blue paint to make reddish-purple horseradish. A layer of mod podge may be applied if desired.
Step 7: For parsley, cut parsley shapes from green construction. An optional coat of mod podge may be applied.

Step 8: Cut an egg shape from white felt/white paper for an egg. I added some yellow paint to my egg to make it look more interesting.
Step 7: For more bitter herbs and a shank bone, I simply sketched pictures and cut them out to place on the seder plate.
Step 8: For Haggadot, I found an image of a Haggadah on the internet, and used Microsoft Word to help adjust it to doll-size. Then, I printed three and cut to size, ensuring that they opened from the correct side (the right).
We’re almost finished!
Now, arrange the “freshly prepared” seder plate foods on the seder plate in the bottle caps
Place the colorful/metallic candy wrappers beneath the seder plate like a placemat, as shown below:
Congratulations! You now have an exquisite Seder plate with matching Haggadot! Your doll will be thrilled and honored when you present her with her new celebratory accessories!
