A collage of Shabbat symbols
Posted 17 February, 2011on:
We made this collage of Shabbat symbols as a craft activity recently. It’s very easy to make a good-looking picture with just a few scraps of felt, fabric and metallic or coloured paper.
I wanted to make something that was quite tactile, so cut challah shapes out of felt and a rectangle of sheer material which could be either a table cloth or a challah cover. I traced the outline of a kiddush cup from a picture on the internet, cut out the shape from metallic paper and stuck on a silver star. The candles were white rectangles with a gold circle behind to represent the light of the flames, and a simple shape for the candlestick.
I printed “Shabbat Shalom” in English and Hebrew characters onto coloured paper. Here’s my template as a PDF file: Shabbat Shalom.
Then – all you need is some glue. And maybe some stickers!
Here is my daughter’s version:
