Ramadan calendar made out of tea bags

Do you also like to drink tea? I absolutely love to drink a cup of tea, especially in the late night hours when the kids are in bed. It’s also a time to reflect on that day’s events. I relax on the couch or write a blogpost for dattelbeere (literally: date-berry). Just like now – the cup of tea is right next to me :-). Even though today’s blogpost is also about crafting, this time it is meant for adults. A Ramadan calendar made out of tea bags.

A calendar for adults

Even before having kids, every year I would craft a Ramadan calendar for my husband. Every night after Iftar, breaking the fast, we would take turns to open a small package. Since not only do kids get excited about a Ramadan calendar- also as an adult I get so much pleasure and joy out of making one and using it as a way to prepare myself for the upcoming Ramadan festival. So to treat myself this year, I made a Ramadan calendar with tea bags and prepared the instructions for you.

You will need the following items for your Ramadan calendar made out of tea bags:
