We love to create door decor as part of our Ramadan crafts annual challenge, so today we worked on a wreath made out of recycled materials.
Wreaths are an assortment of flowers, leaves, fruits, twigs, or various materials that are constructed to resemble a ring. They are also used in ceremonial events in many cultures around the globe, including Ramadan.
My daughters and I have never made a wreath before, but I was inspired once I saw photos of others created in my craft sharing group. I have provided photos as samples from those that have given me permission, below the tutorial.
My teen helped with all the gluing and it took her a few hours to put together. We looked for resources around our house to make our DIY, including a banner from a past Ramadan countdown calendar.
The first step is to cut the cardboard rolls into small strips. We went through several rolls by the time we were finished with the whole project.
The next step is to glue the cardboard rolls strips to the inside hoop, adding as many rows as you would like.
My daughter kept adding the cut cardboard rolls until she was happy with the design.
The final step was to add the banner.
We are going to let it sit overnight before we put it up on our door. There are a few spots that need a little more glue but otherwise, that was an easy, and inexpensive, decor that we were able to do in one afternoon.
