My daughter and I recycled our Oui yogurt glass pots into tea lights for our Ramadan craft today. We plan on putting them in the back yard this summer for outdoor parties.
If you decide to make this, post it using the tag #CraftyRamadan and #PlaidRamadan to be entered into our $50 giveaway!
- Frosted glass paint
- Blue tape
- Oui yogurt glass pot
Start by cutting the blue tape into small squares.
Place the square on the glass pot, then add another but offset it to make a star. This eight points star is called a khatam in Arabic.
Continue to add more khatams all the way around the glass pot.
Add a thin line of blue tape to the top and paint the entire glass pot.
We placed our pot in the sun for a few hours and once it was dry, we used the tip of the scissors to peel off the blue tape.
Now all we need is a LED light inside for our khatam star design to shine through. Never leave a light unattended and be careful with small children and pets when you have a light on.
Make a few more and play around with the khatam shapes this time.
