Ramadhan Advent Calendar 2011 / 1432H

Alhamdulillah this is my fourth advent calendar that I have made for DS1. He looks forward to this every year. It has become a sort of tradition for us.

This year I used paper doilies (one of my favourite craft supply) to hold the favours. I made 30 paper doily cones. The pictures below shows the step.

Fold up the bottom bit of the doily

Shape the doily into a cone. Tape the edges to secure. It is easier to use sticky tape rather than glue.

I then used a fabric covered corkboard that my son already had in his room to pin the cones onto. For the numbers, I used some cut out squares and stamped them.

The Ramadhan title was from Ramadhan Planner Family.

This is the finished advent calendar.

Close up

Besides little favours, just as last year I have placed a Ramadhan related question in each cone.

I just realized that I had not posted the advent calendar I made a couple of years ago. Below is a blurred image of it taken with a cellphone. I must have not had a working camera.

This was basically made using white paper bags. One bag for each day of Ramadhan. I pasted some Ramadhan themed graphics on each bag. I then clipped them onto a string over the window.

Since that year school was on for Eid, I also made these paper bags as favours for my sons entire class.
