How I Create a Mixed Media Eid Mubarak Wreath | Photo Tutorial

Hello crafters! This is Zeyna from Mummy On My Mind back with another Mom & Child craft, this time with the theme of June in mind.

You can have a look at my previous crafts projects, where I created a Number Recognition Game for my Toddler, a 3D Seashell Memory Frame, a Newborn Baby Shadow box Frame,  Newborn Keepsake Photo Album, Hand Drawn Dinosaur Birthday Card and 4 Ways to make your own Thankyou Cards using Stamps.

The theme for the month of June is “Festive”, so of course my project had to be something to do with Eid! Below is the photo tutorial of how I made this beautiful Eid Mubarak wreath, that you can hang on your door or perhaps even use it as a table centre piece for your Eid Party!

For the Eid Mubarak Wreath, I began by applying glue all over the wreath, covering it with crumpled blue tissue paper. I also had a small piece of burlap which I stuck on top of the tissue paper covered wreath, and waited for it to dry before moving on.

Once the wreath is dry, my son – Master Z helped me to spray paint the “front” of the wreath in a sporadic manner, highlighting the texture of the crumpled tissue paper.

I then decorated the wreath using the paper flowers over the burlap section of the wreath, leaving the edges free. I also stuck on one of the pom pom frames at the bottom end of the wreath, and decorated that too with some more of the sparkly paper flowers.

For further embellishment and to add the truly festive touch, I let my son go wild with the spray paints on some plain paper. He sprayed two sheets of paper with individual colours, and the third with a mix of both Fresh Pear and Nebula Blue.

Once the spray painted papers were dry, under my supervision, I let Master Z cut the star shapes using the Star Paper Punch. He really enjoyed doing this.

Master Z helped me stick the stickers on the wreath, next to the paper flowers and a few on the pom pom frame too.

For the final touch, I used the Pretty Paper Studio Islamic Greetings Stamp Set, and applied the Eid Mubarak stamp on some card. Since I used a Blue ink, I highlighted the words “Eid Mubarak” using a black fine liner pen.

I cut the Eid Mubarak sentiment to size and stuck it to the back of the pom pom frame, ensuring that the two sides of the frame could still be seen through, because I really love the edge of the frayed burlap and tissue texture on the wreath, which I still wanted to show through the frame.

There you go! I am looking forward to hanging this up on the front door when Eid comes around. I am so happy with the output, and Master Z had such a great time helping me make this too.
