Floral Arrangements Make Shavuot Memorable
Mount Sinai Memo Board
Good craft glue
16 x 20-inch cork bulletin board
16 x 20-inch piece of AstroTurf (available at hardware stores)
12 silk flowers
12 straight pins
Spread lots of glue all over the cork surface of the bulletin board and the back of the AstroTurf.
Place AstroTurf on bulletin board, pressing down to make it stick. Use push pins, if necessary, to help hold the AstroTurf down while the glue sets.
While the glue dries, you can make your flower push pins. Snap a silk flower off its stem. It should pop off easily. Then carefully push a straight pin all the way through the center of the flower. A thimble might make this easier — and safer. Repeat with the rest of the flowers.
Use flower pins to secure memos, pictures and to-do lists to the board. Then reward yourself with a piece of cheesecake.
