Eid Al Fitr is less then a week away. This holiday is celebrated by Muslims at the end of Ramadan. It’s a festival occasion full of family, community and giving.
We are getting our home ready with decorations. If you follow this blog, you know that I love to look around the house for unusual ways to reuse materials that are already close at hand. Today’s diy craft was made with items you can find in your kitchen and hall closet.
This craft was created by my tween and she felt is was medium. While she enjoyed drawing the design, she did not enjoy the hot glue part.
Hot glue gun
Shoe polish (not in photo)
Start by using the Sharpie to draw out the letters E, I and D on your cardboard.
Cut out the letters with an xacto.
Draw a swirl design and add some dots along the way.
Go over the dark lines with hot glue. Let dry for a few hours.
Place foil, dull side up, over letter. Cut diagonally inwards at corners of foil to make the folds easier. Fold over one side to hold it in place.
Rub the foil with the towel. Don’t use your finger, it might tear the foil. Fold over the rest of the sides.
Rub brown shoe polish over the bumps.
Add a layer of Mod Podge to seal the shoe polish.
Cut a few extra strips of extra cardboard.
Glue them to the back of your letters to make them stand. We found we needed two behind the larger letters.
Your letters are done and ready to be placed on a shelf in your home.
