Ramadan Moon & Star Tutorial

Well, here we are, half-way through our 30 day Ramadan Crafty Challenge.  We have been having so much fun doing all these crafts. 

I have to admit, it's been great spending some one on one with each daughter as she does her craft. 

Today was my five year old's chance to create her own wall decorative hanging so she choose this Ramadan Moon & Star project.
Ramadan Moon & Star Tutorial

Paper plate
Foam stickers
Yellow paint
Blue paint
Sponge brush
Thin ribbon
Small hole punch

Draw out a crescent moon shape on your paper plate.  In the middle of that opening, draw out a star shape.

Cut out your moon shape.

Cut out the star shape.

Lay out your newspaper and paint the star yellow.

Paint your moon shape blue.

Take the paper backing off the foam letters and place them on the paper plate.  If you don't have the handy letters that come as stickers, you'll need to glue down your letters.

Hole punch your paper plate.  You'll only need one punch.

Hole punch your star and pul the ribbon through.  On the backside, tie a knot.

Pull your ribbon through the moon hole punch and tie another knot, so your star won't slip.  Enjoy your wall decoration!
