Today I have another decoration idea for upcoming Ramadan that you can craft yourself. Ramadan lantern window decorations They actually look really pretty on the window if they are decorated with transparent paper. Of course there is also a crafting template for this.
Ramadan lantern window decorations
- Craft template for download or print service
- Cardboard box
- Transparent paper
- Nail clippers and/or scalpel
- Glue stick
- Needle and thread
First of all you print out the craft template. Below this blogpost you will find an explanation on how to do that. Now carefully cut out the crafting template. Either with scissors or a cutter.
Take your favorite color and draw a Ramadan lantern on the cardboard box so it can be used as a window decoration. This also works easier if you print out the template in a thicker paper beforehand. This gives more stability and helps so the cardboard box does not wiggle too much while drawing the lantern on it.
Since we need both a front and back side, the lantern needs to be drawn one more time.
Now you can decide if you want to glue the whole surface of the lantern onto one big transparent paper or if each window should get its own colored lantern. For this you will need to trim the transparent paper to the size that you need and glue it on the lantern. Be careful to not cover the transparent paper with glue but put glue on the lantern. Since most of the transparent paper is visible on both sides, it doesn’t require a complete layer of glue.
Once you cover all the windows with transparent paper put glue on the second side of the lantern. Glue everything on the first side of it and then press it down.
Finally take a thread and pull it though the needle then poke a hole into the lantern so that it can be hung up.
And in the last step you just have to hang up the Ramadan lantern window decorations.
I hope you like the lanterns and wish you lots of fun crafting this idea yourself!
Love and Salam
