During Ramadan, we like decorating our home to commemorate the holy month. Today we made door hangers in the shape of a crescent moon. After we made the green one in this tutorial, we tried our hand at different colors and even tried our hand at a star.
This is an easy craft, but some of the little hands might be frustrated with the ribbon, so my oldest is the one that made this particular moon.
Used cereal box
Draw out your crescent moon on the back of the cereal box. Then draw another crescent moon inside the first moon. You’ll need each moon to be about an inch apart all the way around.
As you can see from our photo, it took us several times to get the Sharpie drawn on the cereal box. If you make a mistake, it will be covered up with ribbon later. You’ll need to cut out the moon from the cereal box.
Put a dab of glue on the back of one of the ends and hold it down on it until it sticks.
Start wrapping the ribbon around the moon shape, going from one end to the next. It’s okay if you need to cut your ribbon on one of the ends and start re-wrapping the second side. We also added more glue as we went, so the ribbon wasn’t only being glued on the ends.
When you get to the end, put a dap of glue down to close off the wrapping. Cut off the excess ribbon.
