Mariam and Reem’s Ramadan Art Gallery

We decorated our apartment door with homemade lanterns, pipe cleaners and beads.

For the flower, we used some cardboard, paint, glitter, and glitter glue. To make our decoration more meaningful, I added some facts about Ramadan on each petal so every time someone passes by my door they can read them and know what Ramadan is all about. To me, it’s a great way of dawah for those who are interested in Islam.

I pasted the following to my flower petals:

  • the month of mercy
  • the month of forgiveness
  • the month of prayer at night
  • the month of blessings
  • the month of fasting

For the Islamic Gallery, I used:

  • Construction paper
  • Glue
  • Sequins
  • Glitter
  • Glitter glue
  • Craft sticks
  • Beads
  • Straws
  • Paint
  • Markers
  1. Print out any designs and coloring pages your child might like from
  2. Color the pictures using markers, glitter glue, and/or paint.
  3. Make a frame using cardboard and glue the colored pictures.
  4. Use construction paper for the masajid.
  5. Then use craft sticks, sequins, and glitter glue to decorate the frames.
  6. The frames are ready!

We made our own shimmery bead chains by using clear laminating sheets, glitter, beads, and straws and added some homemade moons and stars to them.
