It’s coming up to one of my favourite times of the year- Ramadan! If you follow me over on Instagram you know I tend to post little reflections over the month, as well as tutorials for different crafts to get busy with. So I thought I’d put together a little summary of some of the tutorials (new and old) and posts you might find helpful from my archive. Hopefully it will help you get inspired to try something new!
Some of these tutorials were made as part of paid collaborations- please see original posts for any disclosures.
Ramadan Countdown Calendars
I’ve made a few different countdown calendars over the years. They make such a great feature for the wall and are the perfect way to count down the days. I pack mine away carefully each year so I can rotate them/style it out differently. Which one do you prefer? Colourful or neutral?
New to this year I’ve also made a tutorial for a fabric calendar for Hobbycraft. This is a beginner friendly tutorial- all you need is some basic sewing skills (I promise!). I’ve used different mediums to help make it easy to do but still high impact.

Cards hold a special place in my heart, carved out by the many handwritten birthday cards I used to receive all the way from Bangladesh from my beloved Nana (grandad) and recently I’ve really started to love sending them to my friends and family. I’ve got a few card based projects on Cricut Design Space for you if you fancy creating your own, as well as a simple kid-friendly one over at Hobbycraft (more for Eid-al-Adha)
Ramadan and Eid Cards
Kaaba Inspired Cards
I love putting up decorations for Ramadan (and then changing them up for Eid.) It just adds to the special feeling you get through the month, and it’s great to get R into the spirit too. I try not to go OTT with it, and create things that can be used throughout the year. Over the years I’ve been adding to my collection of hand made decor, but I do also like to buy from some of my favourite shops (I’ll link below to my blog posts from last year of Muslim owned brands you should check out!)

And don’t forget my Spoonflower Eid collection for tablescaping…
It’s not Ramadan or Eid if we’re not giving gifts to our loved ones- whether it’s iftaar in a takeaway box, or beautiful presented dates- it’s our way to showing our love to one another. Here are some of the projects I’ve made before:

Round up of Muslim-Owned Shops
In case you forgot to bookmark it, here are my two posts covering some must-know Muslim owned shops for all your Ramadan and Eid needs!
But that’s not all
I still have some crafting projects on their way, via my own channels and through collaborations with my crafting partners/BFFs. So do keep checking back.
I’m so happy that I get to share my faith and my crafts with you all, so a big thank you again for being here. And for those who celebrate Ramadan, my sincere duas that we get to meet the month together with open arms and good health, ready to reap its rewards
