We made these Eid Mubarak beaded letter keychains to give out to a few volunteers at our local mosque. They have been providing free iftar meals to anyone in the community.
Eid Mubrak is a common greeting Muslims say to each other during the holiday season, that means Blessed Festival, in Arabic it is written as عيد مبارك.
Eid AlFirtar, the holiday that commemorates the end of the holy month of Ramadan, is due to occur this Saturday.
- Alphabet letters
- Black beads (4)
- Keychain ring
We started by securing our cord around the keychain ring. You can do this by folding the cord in half, then looping it into the ring, bringing the open ends through the cord loop.
Before adding the letter beads, you will want to add the black beads. For the first word, tie off the cord about half way down the middle of it. For the longer second word, tie off the cord at the ring. Add a black ring to each cord, then the corresponding letters. Include the final two black beads and tie off the cord again.
That was such an easy craft that we made several. If you enjoyed making this beaded activity, check out these others we have made:
