Taking things that are ordinary and making them stand out, was our mission for today’s Ramadan craft with this plain, square paper plate.
My daughter and I personalized it with a greeting that says Eid Mubarak, or Blessed Eid, a common phrase Muslims say to each other at Eid Al Fitr, which is due to occur at the start of June 2019.
We will be taking our Eid paper plate to a party, filled with treats. It will really stand out from all the other potluck items. After the party, if there are any treats left over, we will leave them for the hostess, or pass them on to other friends, and they will come with a unique hand made craft.
- Paper plate
- Hole punch
- Letter stickers
- Round sequence
To start, my daughter first placed the letters E I D M U B A R A K on the sequence, making sure to always have the hole at the bottom.
Next my daughter placed 11 holes all along one edge of the paper plate.
Next, she added the letter sequence circles to the holes with the brads, making sure to include a blank one for the space between the words.
Now our paper plate is read for treats.
Instead of Eid Mubarak, you can have the letters spell Happy Birthday or your own name. You can also include stickers that are not letters or go all around the entire plate, there are so many possibilities.
