Let’s Make Clay Matzah Wine Charms!

The countdown is *on* for Passover. It’s in mere days, and I’m so ready for it. This feels like the first major holiday in actual years that will feel like a normal holiday again. And thank goodness for that!

So I’ve made a couple of poly clay projects this year (hamantashen wine charms and a hamsa wall ornament), and I hope you’ll forgive me for just one more. Well, for the meantime! I whipped up another batch of wine charms, but this time they’re featuring matzah. These wine charms were so fun to make, and honestly, way easier than the hamantashen charms!

This time, I chose to use a tan clay for the matzah and use beads for a pop of color. I think they look pretty snazzy on my wine glass. I’m really looking forward to using these wine charms at our Passover seder this year.

What are you looking forward to most this Passover?

Materials

  • Poly clay
  • Beads
  • Jump rings
  • Parchment paper
  • Cookie sheet
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Wine charm rings

Directions

  1. Knead the clay until pliable and roll it out to about 1/8-inch thickness.
  2. Cut the clay into 3/4-inch squares and use a toothpick to prick little matzah-like holes in the squares. Don’t forget to make a hole at the top for a jump ring.
  3. Bake your charms on a parchment lined cookie sheet according to the clay package directions. (I baked mine for about 30 minutes at 275 degrees Fahrenheit.)
  4. Once the charms are cool, open a small jump ring and thread it through the hole in the top of your matzah charm and close.
  5. Add the matzah charm and beads to your wine charm rings.
  6. Optional: When gifting, place a set of charms in an organza bag to really dress them up!
