I'm a little short on time today, since it's a typical Monday. I don't know about you guys, but since the bank, post office and all other such places are closed on Sunday, it seems that Monday's to do list is longer then any other days!
Today I thought it might be fun to decorate the table where we eat dinner.
We made a festive table runner out of crepe paper. The little Eyptian man and woman above are wood figures I picked up in the Egyptian souk. I wish I had written down the artist's name!
Start by cutting out five long pieces of crepe paper. We didn't really
measure, we just wanted to make sure the ends were long enough to be covered by the placemats.
We started with just the simple design that you see in the second picture,
but then wanted to use up some of the letters we used in our I Love Allah This Much craft. It turned out that the blue was a nice contrast to the yellow and
white. The crescent moon and stars are made from a craft punch I have. "Eid Saeed" means Happy Eid.
