Eid, like any other festival, gives us a chance to celebrate and spend time with our friends and family. Ramadan is a holy occasion that is observed worldwide with tremendous faith, hope and goodwill. Apart from the delicious feast with extended family, Muslim families also decorate their houses with flowers, especially with the ones that are fragrant. People also send Ramadan flowers to close friends or family, when they live apart. If you are celebrating Ramadan this month and looking for ideas on Eid decorations with flowers, we have listed a few easy DIY ideas for you -
Get Creative with Mason Jars:
You can easily nail the vintage vibes this Ramadan by reserving some mason jar vases for flowers at home. Just clean a clear mason jar, remove its lid, add a twine and an adorable tag with flower names or a sweet Eid wish, and add all your favorite flowers that match the interior of your home.
Enamelware Pitcher Arrangement:
No need to spend money on fancy expensive vases this time. Rather than buying a new vase, try and turn any polished pitcher in your house into a vase. It will give your home a cozy and rustic feel. You can also paint it to contrast the walls of your house.
Get a crate of milk. Yes, you read that right! White milk jugs alone can look great with nice and green long stems. So, why settle for just one jug? Get a whole crate and decorate it with your favourite flowers to add life to your living room.
Use a few mason jars or just a broad vase to form the base of this voluminous Eid decoration with flowers. Add flowers of your choice and a few drooping stems so that it looks like an overflowing joyous floral arrangement.
Perfume Bottle Arrangements:
How about repurposing perfume bottles? Give your used perfume bottles a second shelf life by using them as pretty little flower vases. These perfume bottles would look great with lily of the valley or peonies. Make sure you pick bottles of different shapes and sizes and place them in a group to brighten up a corner.
DIY Tulip Cabbage Arrangement:
This Ramadan, try to recycle things which are usually wasted. For this arrangement, all you need is cabbage. A few big cabbage leaves can serve as a base for your Ramadan flowers arrangement and when you are done with it, you can just toss it in your compost pile.
How about pink primroses in a flowery teacup? Yes, please! Instead of throwing away your old crockery when you replace them with a new set, use them as vases. Since such crockery pieces are old and used, they will add a nice rustic touch to a corner. Teacup vases are perfect for your windowsill for example.
Citrus Floral Arrangement:
No scent or flavour works better than citrus in summer. You can get two broad rectangular vases of different sizes for this Ramadan flowers arrangement.Place the smaller one inside the larger one, then slide slices of oranges, lemon and grapefruit inside the gap between the vases, and add water and flowers. That's it!
Hope these DIY ideas brighten up your home during the holy month of Ramadan and bring good health, love and prosperity.
