What you need: paper of various colours, scissors, glue and thread.
Step 1: Cut your star and moon shapes: Six small stars, three medium stars, and three big stars. Download a template at www.kenzibox.com.
Step 2: Fold each star in the middle. Glue 3 Stars of the same size together creating the 3D star shown in the photo. Repeat this so that you create a total of two small 3D stars, one medium 3D star and one large 3D star. Glue together the two moon shapes.
Step 3: Make small holes in your stars and moon, tie the thread through. Your Ramadan mobile is ready!
The Happy Box Ramadan Glitter Moon and Star
What you need: paper, paper plate, scissors, glitter, glue and thread.
Step 1: Apply a layer of glue using your finger to help spread it over the entire surface of one side of the star and moon.
Step 2: Now set them on a plate plate. Gently sprinkle with glitter until well covered. Don’t worry if you spill, the plate will collect the extra glitter.
Step 3: Allow at least 15 minutes to dry and then gently lift them off the plate allowing the extra glitter to fall onto the plate so you can use it when you prepare the other side of the star.Remember this is going to hang up so it needs to look great on both the front and back.
Step 4: When the top is dry turn over both shapes so you can glitter the backs. Don’t rush, you don’t want your shapes sticking to the plate.
Step 5: Thread the string through the holes in each shape attaching the star to the moon and leaving a long string to attach the moon to the suction cup hanger.
Step 6: Using the suction cup display your work in a window, or a mirror or even a special place in your home. www.thehappybox.ae.
