Tissue Paper Stained Glass ‘Eid Decoration

A sister’s ‘Eid stained glass craft inspired me when I saw it posted to her blog last year.

The photo to the left is my take on her project. It uses clear contact paper and torn bits of tissue paper. It’s a lot of fun for children to make.

See the Tissue Paper Stained Glass for Eid page for the instructions and printables to make this.


 ‘Eid Spring Card

Spring cards are so much fun to make. The finished card looks complicated but it’s not.

Here are photo of a masculine blue one that we recently did.

Visit the Eid Spring Card Craft page for this activity.


Stained Glass Foil Craft

Does it seem like I’m stuck on stained glass or what?

This craft is really a lot of fun. It’s great for those who are really artistic and are attentive to details.

However, it can be easily adapted for any age and skill by choosing a design appropriate to a person’s abilities.

The finished project looks great on a wall or in a window.

Go to the ‘Eid Mubarak Stained Glass Foil Craft for this project.


Eid Candy Dotty Decorations

This craft is super easy! And a bowlful at a party looks fun and festive!

Your kids will love making these and then eating them on ‘Eid insha’Allah!

If you want to see how to do this, visit the Eid Candy Dotty Decorations page.
