Fun DIY Crafts for a Special Eid

Is it just me, or has Ramadan flown by? I can't believe it's almost Eid! With so much to prepare (read: baking, cleaning, buying gifts), I've been wondering if I'll be able to fit in any time for creating Eid decor with my daughter. 

I love making Eid special for my kids by decorating the house together and creating new family traditions. But let's be honest - not all of us have time to sit down with paper and pen creating new things from scratch. 

So I scoured the internet in search of crafty ideas which would make easy yet enjoyable Eid projects. It's fantastic to see talented people from our community creating beautiful DIY resources, making this time of year a bit more special. 

 

Here's a collection of some of our favourites:
