Now that Eid AlFitar is only eight days away, and Ramadan is coming to a close, we made this glitterific decor to get our home ready for a celebration.
This Ramadan has been difficult, as we have not being able to share it with family or friends due to the COVID19.
Taking a little extra time to decorate our home for the holiday will not only cheer up our home, but also allow us to spend some time together being creative.
After, we will share our art work with our family in a virtual call, making them feel as if they were in our living room, enjoying the decor in real time.
Two of my daughters helped with today’s craft, not because it was difficult, just becuase they found out that they really enjoyed spending time together.
- Square set
- Moon and star wood shape
- Wood shape letters in E I and D
- Glitterific paint in Hologram-Clear, Neon Tangerine, Hot Pink, Lime Neon
- Colorshift paint in Aqua Flash, Pink Flash, Blue Violet Flash, Green Flash
We started to paint the letters with the glitterific paint, but soon realized the letters needed a base color first. So we also added these colors to all four wood pieces: Bright Pink to the E and it’s frame, Lime Green to the I and ti’s frame, Perfect Purple to the D and it’s frame and Cloudless to the moon/star and it’s wood square.
After those colors had dried, my daughter added Glitterific to all the letters and the moon/star shapes.
Each of the frames, and the wood square, received a coat of the ColorShift paint.
We set everything out in the sunshine to dry for a few hours, then we glued the moon and star shapes to the wood square.
It is very difficult to capture on camera how fun and dimensional the paint makes the decor. The ColorShift paint looks like it is shimmering, while the glitter sparkles in the sunlight.
Our decor is ready for our mantle, and our next weekly family virtual call.
