There’s no time to waste, in just a few days it’ll be Eid! So if you haven’t put your decorations up yet, you need to get a move on! Need some inspiration? Hopefully I can help. Check out what I did…
Each Eid, I either create an Eid mantel or Eid vignette. This time around, I decorated my mantel, and this year’s Eid al-Adha mantel is all about being green. I’m not sure if you noticed the reoccurring theme in my mantel since last winter….
My grandmother’s embroidered pillow cases!
My grandmother passed away a year ago on Oct 2. My mother had given me the pillow cases not long after. I loved my grandmother immensely, so these pillow cases hold precious meaning to me and are dear to my heart simply because they were made by her hands. After framing them, I have kept them as my main pieces on my mantel throughout the year and base all the other pieces around them. If you have been following along for a while, then you know that I’m a seasonal decorator so my mantel gets switched up throughout the year with each season (and holidays as well). Despite that fact, the one thing that won’t be changed out are my grandmother’s framed pillow cases.
Green was an accent color in my previous Eid al-Adha decorations, but this year it takes lead with the gold, black, and plum as the accents.
My Eid lambs take center stage…
With my Kabah pillow on one side joined by a lantern and the cute mini lambs I had purchased from Carolyn’s Homework. Aren’t those little guys adorable?
Then on the other side is my rustic window embellished with a gold doily garland and my plum candle holders. Yup, my window is another reoccurring piece on my mantel that you probably recognize. Another favorite piece! It was just an ordinary window that I shabbied up. See how I did it HERE.
My green vintage bottles filled with dried bouquets were welcome to stay from my spring mantel. Green is the theme after all. And with plum being an accent color, the purple flowers in the dried bouquet was a perfect fit!
Eid meet rustic and vintage… OTI style! What’s your style? Have fun showing off your style in your holiday decorating!
And before I forget (because I really did almost forget)… Quite a few people have asked me about my Eid lambs. I did not make the actual lambs. I had purchased them about five (maybe six) years ago from Crate & Barrel. All I did was add the chip board letters which I had Glitter Blasted. You can see the original post HERE. The lambs are made out of wood and covered in wool like bunched up yarn. Unless you are handy with wood, you may not be able replicate them with the same medium, but you can do so through other mediums. Think outside the box, and I will do the same. Maybe by next Eid al-Adha I’ll have a fun idea for you… I already have a couple. ;)
Oh, one more decorating idea I want to show you…
My coffee table centerpiece using my frame tray that I made and been changing up since last fall. On top of it is my Kabah inspired box of surprises, another lantern, and a little lamb that I just couldn’t resist! Simple with a hint of Eid al-Adha.
Also, don’t forget the Eid wall art that I shared in my previous post. Above it going across the wall and patio doors, you’ll find my little star lights twinkling in the night.
I’m done decorating… what about you?
