From simple vases wrapped in rustic twine, to aromatic diffusers covered in your favorite trinkets, it’s easy to turn your trash into treasure with these DIY wine bottle crafts.

3 White Flowers for Rosh Hashanah Bouquets

This year, Rosh Hashanah starts on the evening of September 20th, and continues until the evening of Friday, September 22nd. Jewish families will be gathering for reflective activities; they’ll exchange gifts, and decorate their homes. Chief among those decorations will be white flowers for Rosh Hashanah. These flowers, on this holiday, encourage families to reflect on the things they did well, things they can improve, and to ask forgiveness for a fresh start in the year ahead.

While Rosh Hashanah is quieter than the New Year’s celebrations most think of on January 1st, it is not less important. For Jews, it’s a time for deep reflection and remembering to celebrate with them, even in some small way, is a testament to how much you respect and appreciate them.
