For any easy decorative Mirriam or Elijah glass, use a marker to draw draw on a plastic cup.
Decorating the Miriam and Elijah glasses for your seder table is just that easy! Oil-Based Sharpies and a couple of wine glasses are really all you need to create these iconic glasses for your seder table at Passover. Feel free to use our custom templates or even create your own look. Make sure to have some q-tips and rubbing alcohol handy just in case, to erase any mistakes as you’re decorating. Also, leave the glass to cure for 24-48 hours before their use. The Miriam and Elijah glasses are very easy to make – you might even want to make sure to have extra glasses on hand should you want to customize one for each guest joining your seder.
