The kandil at the door

Sharing is caring!

We don’t have a bulb holder to put our kandil (lamp) outside the door.. and the options in the balcony are also limited. So we made this kandil craft to welcome our guests..

I had a couple of Foam sheets that I had got from the US. The cardstock and tissue paper roll was over and so we decided to make do with what was available at home. Once we stuck the plain foam sheets we felt that it looked too plain, so I gave a rubber stamp to P  and she stamped a pattern on it .. Then blotches of glitter glue gave it some shine ..Finally the leftover crepe ribbons from her bday party was added .
