For those celebrating Eid this Friday (or Thursday … or Saturday), an early Eid Mubarak. In case my neighbors didn’t already get that our family was celebrating something special, I wanted to add a little something to the front door. This is inspired by the one Maggie from smashedpeasandcarrots made for Spring.
Medium Size Wooden Letters of your message (you don’t want them too heavy or you’ll have trouble hanging them)
Wide Ribbon (preferably 3 inches wide) the length of your message plus 8 inches
Same Ribbon cut to 3 12″ pieces and 15″ piece
Very strong glue (I use my trusty glue gun)
Spray paint your letters to match/coordinate with your ribbon
Once dry, lay your letters face down and lay the ribbon on top of them, trace where the ribbon hits the letters. This is so you know where to glue and don’t end up with a sticky mess. (sorry I didn’t take a picture of this step)
Lay the ribbon down and lay out your letters how you want them to go.
Start glueing them one at a time
For the bow on top:
Make a loop with the first 12″ length, staple in the center
Repeat with second top and lay them on an angle on top of each other
Make a loop with the small piece and glue it to the middle of the bow.
|Prettiest bow I’ve ever made in my life …|
