It feels like Eid al-Fitr (the first Muslim holiday where Muslims fast 29/30 days during the month of Ramadan, according to the lunar Islamic calendar) was just here, and now Eid al-Adha (the second Muslim holiday where Muslims go on a pilgrimage to Mecca) is already approaching! It’s just two weeks away! I’ve already started working on the girls’ Eid outfits which I will be sharing with you all in a future post. I’m just slacking in the decorations department. I will be putting up my star lights like I did for Eid al-Fitr, but wanted to make some other decorations that are distinct to Eid al-Adha. One of the symbols associated with Eid al-Adha is the lamb, so when I found these adorable lambs at Crate & Barrel about four years ago, I just had to get them!
I hadn’t taken them out of their original bag until a few days ago… yup, I’m guilty of buying and storing:D But that’s only because we’ve moved so often that I’ve just been keeping our non-everyday and seasonal things stored. We’ve been in this condo for the last 2 1/2 years, and a few months ago decided it’s time to just take things out…as needed. So it was time for the lambs to come out! Of course, I couldn’t just leave them as is:D Just a simple addition using chip board alphabet letters I had on hand and Glitter Blast. Yup, I said Glitter Blast! I’m so addicted!! I just can’t stop!! AAAAGGGHH! I think I need to join a Glitter Blast addict group:P But don’t my lambs look so pretty and just say “Eid!”
Yeah, they really do say “Eid”…hehe :D After I Glitter Blasted the letters and once dry, I hot glued them on top of the lambs (I applied the glue to the back of the letters).
I couldn’t decide if I should go with a ribbon on all or no ribbon. My husband and the girls voted for one ribbon on the “E” since that’s the leader of the pack.
What do you guys think? Ribbon on all, no ribbon, or one ribbon?
Now I just have to figure out where I want to place them:)
Hope you guys like my Eid al-Adha lambs!
You can find me at these parties. See you there!
