Diamond wrap is a self adhesive craft material that adds a regal flair to special occasions, so seemed perfect to dress up a mosque for Ramadan.
It is easy to bend or trim, to add a touch of sparkle and dazzling diamond rhinestone to any project.
A mosque is a a Muslim place of worship. Usually during the holy month of Ramadan, it is a very busy location, with nightly prayers, community iftar (the breaking of the fast meal) gatherings and a place to drop off donated items for the less fortunate.
However, due to COVID19, we are having a quarantine Ramadan & unable to visit our local mosque. My daughter & I made this diamond wrap mosque to put on our mantle so that we can be reminded of one of our favorite places to be at this time.
- Diamond wrapt in two contrast colors
- Black canvas
- Painters tape
My daughter started by drawing out a mosque design that was slightly smaller than her canvas. She cut out the mosque door and placed blue tape on protect that square of canvas. While she also placed a window in the minaret, she decided later not to cut it out of the diamond wrap.
Next we took the canvas outside, placed it on the ground, added a lot of paint to the tip of the paintbrush, and splatter painted the blue color.
While the paint was drying, my daughter cut out the mosque shapes out of the diamond wrap. She alternated the color on the minaret for variety.
Since the diamond wrap is self adhesive, it was very easy to attach the pieces to the black canvas.
The final step is to add a little bit of gold paint to the door, to make it a different color than the rest of the night sky.
Now our diamond wrap mosque is done and when we took it outside, the diamonds sparkled!
