Make your own Ramadan bunting + free printable!

When I did my Eid bunting last year, I told myself that although the process was fun with the kids, I’d need to come up with a way to make Ramadan bunting a lot easier the following year. I wanted to have everything ready well in advance of Ramadan this year, so I’m all sorted with our decorations now (we keep it simple here) and it took me all of 15 minutes to do it!

You’ll need:

  • Bunting triangles – I used IKEA’s SPRUDLA garland flags. At £3.75 for 48 – these were a bargain. They are excellent quality and come with pre-made holes for you to thread through. If you don’t have access to an IKEA, you can get these on Amazon. They’re glittery but understated, affordable and come in the exact number that you need.
  • Glue dots or any adhesive. I find glue dots halve the time needed to complete just about any craft! I always have these at home.
  • Scissors
  • Alphabets to place on the bunting (you can download those for free at the end of the post)
  • Some ribbon, twine or yarn to thread through the bunting.

To see how I put it all together, watch the video below:

How simple is that? You’ve got something you made yourself, that you can do with the kids and cost barely anything at all! When Eid rolls around, you can use the printable on my Eid bunting post. All you have to do is print the first page of the printable and create two new pieces of bunting with an E and I on them. Then use the leftover ‘D’ from Ramadan and the other half of the bunting that says ‘Mubarak’ and you have new festive bunting!

You can reuse the bunting year in and year out which makes it even more cost effective. If you’ve got more time on your hands and you’d prefer to use paper or card that matches your colour theme – go for it! My Eid bunting post also has a bunting triangle template, so if you don’t want to buy readymade triangles, you can create your own.

    I have never made these or had them up for Ramadhan before. I probably thought it was too much work. You made it sound easy….jazakillahu khayr

    I love buntings! I have one hanging in my bedroom and more recently a custom made one for my lil one in his play area. I think they’re a brilliant piece of decoration for all year round . Happy Ramadan sis!
