Eid al-Fitr Floral Centerpiece

This simple arrangement of summery blooms -- decorated with glittered tags -- is adapted for the Eid dinner table. For those that don't drink alcohol and won't have empty wine bottles, empty Sharbat bottles leftover from Ramadan can be used instead.

Introduction

When prepping glass vessels for this project, be sure to use our simple trick to washing and drying bottles.

materials

  • Summer flowers (We used delphium, hydrangeas, veronica, statis, peonies, and mint.)
  • Clear glass bottles
  • Gold glittered cardstock
  • Star paper punches, measuring 1-and-2-inches
  • Twine
  • Small hole punch 1/16 inches
  • Scissors
  • Optional: Tin can (for making crescent shapes)

steps

  1. Draw crescent moon shapes onto glittered gold cardstock paper or use a tin can to trace out the shape; cut out.
  2. Using star-shaped punches; punch stars from the gold glittered cardstock.
  3. Punch a small hole on top of each moon and star; thread with twine and tie ends.
  4. Hang tags off of bottles. Place one or two stems of flowers in each bottle.
