Easiest Crescent Moon Theme DIY Eid Card

Sharing is caring!

The crescent moon signals the start of Eid celebrations, so participate in the festivities by making your own super easy DIY Eid Card with a Crescent Moon theme!

The month of Ramzan ends next week, and Muslims across the world will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr, one of the two major Islamic festivals. And we’re also celebrating here at Artsy Craftsy Mom, with an easy DIY for Kids – a Crescent Eid Card!

Eid-UL-Fitr Moon Spotting

Muslims are having a tradition of following the lunar calendar and not the solar calendar.

What is the significance of the Crescent Moon on Eid?

When the Crescent moon which is also known as Hilal is sighted, the beginning of Ramadan which is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar is decided. 

Similarly, When Hilal or the crescent moon is sighted again at the end of the Ramadan month, Eid-UL-Fitr Celebration starts with utmost joy and happiness.

Is the crescent a symbol of Islam?

Just as the cross is the internationally recognized symbol of Christianity, and the Star of David tied to Judaism, the crescent moon is the accepted symbol of Islam and the dominating symbol of many Muslim countries. It adorns flags, mosques, and is even used on some product advertisements

What does the crescent moon symbolize?

ISLAM emerged in Arabia where travel along the desert trade routes was largely by night, and navigation depended upon the position of the moon and stars. The moon thus represents the guidance of God on the path through life

  
So here’s a really easy Eid card for kids to make and gift their friends or cousins!

Materials needed for the Crescent Moon Theme DIY Eid Card:

  • Silver Glitter Foam
  • Dark-colored card stock or stiff paper
  • Silver rhinestone stickers
  • Patterned Paper
  • Piece of cardboard
  • Star punch or star stickers
  • Glue, scissors, thread

 

Directions to make Crescent Moon Theme DIY Eid Card:

1. Decide upon the size of the card you want to create and fold your cardstock accordingly. Opt for dark colors so that the crescent will stand out.

2. Begin creating a crescent stencil out of cardboard. Use a compass to draw a circle, and then draw an arc to form a crescent shape. Cut out the crescent.

3. Using the cardboard as a stencil, trace out the crescent shape on the back of your glitter foam sheet, and then cut it out. We do this to handle the foam as little as possible.

4. Stick the crescent in the middle of the card, and start decorating with rhinestone stickers. We used two different sizes to add some interest. The outside of the card is now complete!

5. For the inside, fold the plain white paper and stick it to the inner spine of the card, so that you have a light surface to write your message on.

6. Punch out some stars out of patterned paper and stick them on a piece of string. When dry, stick each end of the string on either side of the card so that it forms a banner when the card is open.

7. You can also make another card with a smaller crescent and a border of shiny tape. Now print out a message and stick it inside the card, or write your own – your DIY eid card is ready!!

 

This is a really easy card for kids to make; with some help required to make the star banner. You can also skip the banner and just stick the stars on the inside. Let this crescent bring glad tidings into each of your homes! Eid Mubarak!
