As a Muslim American mom, I get so #hyped for Ramadan and Eid. All the glitter and glamour of Christmas time always made me a little bit jealous growing up, so I vowed to bring the same excitement around our holidays for my children. Thankfully, with the boom of entrepreneur Muslims around the globe we now have a plethora of options and #glitter for Muslim holidays. With Ramadan approaching quickly, now you can get your home “holiday ready” with some ready-made crafts for all you busy mommy’s who don’t have time to make your own! I hope you enjoy this list and discover some new decorations to make the holidays festive for your little ones!
It all started with a little creativity and some free time when my daughter was very young. My friends and I got together and created a wreath for our door to welcome Ramadan. Now, with not much time on our hands, we are thankful we have creative mommy Lynda, from A Wreath to Remember, to make these custom wreaths for everyone. If you don’t have the time or a creative thumb, drop Lynda a message for your customized wreath before Ramadan!
I found these awesome lanterns on Amazon and added a bit of my own creativity to jazz them up. I bought battery operated string lights from Target and stuffed them in the Lanterns. At night, the colored glass mixed with the lights create a very enchanting effect.
Table Top Decor
Most of my decor has been collected over a couple of years of discovering new vendors, stores and ideas. But the basics year round in my house are dining table runners, table top props, lights, and wall hangings. I found a lot of my table top décor at the following online stores:
Ramadan Runners: Ranoon.com
3 tiered crescents: Eidway.com
Hand Painted Henna Candles: Henna Crafts by Pramila
Etsy shops are the best place to go if you don’t have time to make your own crafty decor. Or you can settle for a ready made design by some of the online shops.
Check out the below #RamadanBanner from the Beautiful Banner Shop.
Another online shop that has some cool décor is ModernEid.com. My favorite thing from there is the Countdown To Ramadan poster. It’s got a chalkboard section for you and your little one to write a countdown together!
Don’t forget to set the table in Ramadan style with some decor from EidCreations.com! They have a couple modern designs for paper goods, party decor and more. These come in handy for Iftars, because I know I have no energy to wash or stack dishes in the dishwasher after fasting all day!
