Following on from the Eid Tree idea shared last week, now we need to get thinking on how to decorate it!
We are trying to gather all the ideas (both decoration-wise and just general uses for the Eid tree) here on this Pinterest board – join us! If you come across anything that you think might be good, pls feel free to share too!
Lastly, why not get some mums and kids over to have a decoration making session? Home-made decorations are so charming and the children will love seeing their handiwork up there. It also makes it easier when done together, doesn’t it?!
If you’re in the London area, join us for ours! It will be at the Children’s Islamic Library in Stanmore next Wednesday at 2pm.
Happy decorating 🙂
Mashallah, more and more people are now decorating their houses for Eid – stringing up lights, hanging up balloons, and creating Islamic pieces around which presents can be kept leading up to the big day!
- Check out this Mosque which someone very talented made with her girls!
Here is a mosque which opens up to reveal presents!
- Why not have an Eid Tree? Here is what one mum said: “We have a plant in our living room on which we hung home-made stars and a moon (cardboard and foil!), some angels the kids made in class, and other bits of decoration. Next to it is our very amateur attempt at making a mosque with boxes, a balloon and paper mache (and lots of paint and sequins!). It doesn’t look all that but hey, we had fun making it!”
Check out this beautifully decorated tree sent in by a mum!
“Here is the picture of our Eid tree. I have three girls. They are the ones who decorated it – as you can see the ornaments are all the activities we did during Ramadhan.”
Or how about this home-made palm tree?
I love this idea of personalised ornaments. Every year, a mum makes an ornament out of a recent photo – here is what she said: “We exchange an ornament every year with our kids’ pictures. On our Eid tree is a history of our kids growing up. Now that my kids are older, I don’t set up the tree any more but I always display the ornaments!”
It makes a lovely personal gift too – am sure the grandparents and aunts and uncles would love it 🙂
