To display our stuffed dates from yesterday, we dressed up our cheese glass tray, with Plaid Crafts Gallery Glass, to put them on for the Eid party next week.
Eid Al Fitr is the celebration that occurs at the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.
We are very lucky to own a cheese platter that is made from glass because we were able to use the left over gallery glass from our Allah suncatcher. Be sure to go to the bottom of the post to see the extra crafting surprise!
If you decide to make this, post it using the tag #CraftyRamadan and #PlaidRamadan to be entered into our $50 giveaway!
- Glass cheese platter
- Eid and lantern template
- Gallery Glass – blue, green and yellow
- Liquid Lead
- Blue painters tape
The first step is to tape the word Eid and lanterns to the bottom side of the cheese tray.
The next step is flip the tray over, outline the word Eid and lanterns with the liquid lead, wait overnight for it to harden, then fill in with color.
That is all there is to it. To make the colors blur into each other like in the letter I, just use a toothpick after filling in both colors to blend them together.
We hope to cover the tray with our stuffed dates, then as everyone eats them the letters and lanterns will be revealed.
For an extra crafting surprise, we discovered that we could take the letters and lanterns from the tray and put them on our window until the party!
