We are on our final Ramadan craft for this year and I am actually sad that the 30 day challenge is over. I have really enjoyed spending the extra time together with my daughters, crafting while we talked.
But rather than think about it being over, I cherished the extra time today getting ready for Eid Al Fitr, the holiday that commemorates the end of Ramadan.
We have a lot of cooking in the kitchen to prepare for a few Eid parties this weekend, so the craft was short and made by my youngest daughter in between pulling cookies from the oven.
The paints were sent to me for my role as Plaid Ambassador and the stickers were a set I have left over from an old scrapbook project. My husband has been volunteering to build a shelf for school so I picked up the extra pieces of wood he was going to throw out.
My daughter started by painting all the wood scrap pieces with the outdoor paint. This type of paint has a bumpy texture to help give the wood the “gold nugget” effect we are trying to achieve.
My daughter waited for a few hours for the paint to dry. We didn’t bother with a second coat since we were going to add the gold paint.
After the paint had fully dried, my daughter added the letter stickers that spell ‘Eid Mubarak.’ The final step was to add a layer of Mod Podge over to seal them.
Now the letters were done and ready to be displayed anywhere in our home.
