If you're celebrating the Holy Month, adding some Ramadan decor to your home is a lovely way to infuse your space with warmth and spirituality, as well as sending Ramdan well wishes to your family and friends.

One of the most iconic symbols of Ramadan is the crescent moon and star, so it's important to incorporate these symbols into your decor, whether that's with elegant wall hangings, table centrepieces, or even illuminated motifs. You can craft them yourself using simple materials like paper, fabric, or string lights, adding a personal touch to your decorations or purchase them from retailers such as Amazon and Ginger Ray.

Price: $58.42

Every celebration needs a banner, right? These Eid decorations from Itsy Bitsy Party Co include two sets of crescent moon and star bunting, seven 3D paper decoration, eight swirls, twelve balloons, ten metres of ribbon and aa banner.

A reviewer said: "The produce was packed beautifully and I love that you can reuse everything! Even the paper dangling pompom things are reusable because they have small Velcro to stick them when opened, which was lovely. I hate having to put them paper pompoms together usually but it was so simple with these. I also love how you get extra letters too so I will just need to switch the Ramadan text to EID and voila my Eid deco is done! It is definitely worth the money as I can use this deco time and time again which makes it really good value."

  • Reusable materials

Cons

  • Contents may vary

John Lewis Brass Cube Candle HolderJohn Lewis

Add some light and warmth to you iftar table with this John Lewis Brass Cube Candle Holder. It can hold one tealight at a time and would be a lovely addition to a gold colour-scheme.

A reviewer said: " bought two of these candle holders and went back for several more after I had used them the first time. They were a delightful addition to my decorations (on the mantelpiece and side tables). I bought extra to replace my usual candle holders as these enclose the candle and so are safer to have around."

Best for Eid table décor 

Brighten up your table, hallway, landing or any space with this Ramadan Table Lamp. It emits a gentle warm glow and you can choose from a range of different designs. How fun!

A reviewer said: "The moon pod feels like it’s metal and the rest feels like it’s plastic. You need 3 x AA batteries and then it turns on at the bottom of the base. It looks quite nice when it’s lit up and inside the ball ball is a string light, so not really a proper light. I’d say it’s more for decoration rather than emitting light."

Pros

  • Non-flickering light
  • Compact size

Cons

  • Not very robust, according to users

What is Ramadan?

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is considered the holiest month for Muslims. It's a time of fasting, prayer, self-reflection and community. During Ramadan, Muslims fast from dawn until sunset, refraining from eating, drinking, smoking, and engaging in sinful behaviour. The fast is broken each evening with a meal called iftar, and the month concludes with the celebration of Eid al-Fitr, a festive holiday marking the end of Ramadan.

When is Ramadan?

Ramadan is a lunar month, so its timing shifts each year in relation to the Gregorian calendar. This year it lands on Sunday 10th March to Tuesday 9th April 2024. Typically, Ramadan lasts for 29 or 30 days, depending on the sighting of the moon, and it occurs approximately 10-12 days earlier each year (according to the calendar).

DIY Ramadan decoration ideas

If you fancy a craft project, these DIY Ramadan decorations are not only fun to make but also add a personal and meaningful touch to your home during the holy month. You can get the whole family involved!

Ramadan banner

Create a Ramadan banner using colourful card or felt. Cut out letters to spell "Ramadan" or "Eid Mubarak" and string them together with ribbon or twine. You can embellish the banner with decorative elements like stars, moons, or Islamic patterns. We recommend upcycling ideas such as cutting up empty cereal boxes and packaging to use as the base.

Lanterns

Why not make some decorative lanterns using sheets of card or colourful paper. Cut out lantern shapes and decorate them with markers, paint, or glitter. You can also add tissue paper inserts to create a stained glass effect. Hang the lanterns around your home for a festive touch.

Ramadan countdown calendar

If you want to make a surprise for your kids, a countdown calendar is a nice option. It doesn't have to be expensive, try using small envelopes or paper bags. Number each envelope or bag with the days of Ramadan and fill them with treats, inspirational quotes, or acts of kindness for each day. Hang the calendar on a wall or display it on a table for everyone to enjoy.

Islamic wall art

Design your own Islamic wall art using canvas, wood, or paper. Write out meaningful Quranic verses, Hadiths, or Islamic phrases in beautiful calligraphy. You can also paint or stencil decorative motifs such as crescent moons, stars, or geometric patterns.

Table centrepiece

Create a centrepiece for your iftar table using candles, flowers, or decorative trays. Arrange items like dates, dried fruits, and nuts in elegant containers or baskets for a traditional touch. You can also make personalized place cards or napkin rings for each guest.

Wreath

From Easter wreaths to Christmas wreaths, wreaths are lovely for any occasion. There are so many ways to decorate them! You could use real or artificial flowers, greenery or fabric. Add embellishments like ribbons, beads, or miniature ornaments in colours that symbolize the spirit of Ramadan. Hang the wreath on your front door to welcome guests during the holy month.

Paper chains and garlands

Make paper star garlands to hang around your home. Cut out star shapes from colourful paper or cardstock and string them together with yarn or string. You can vary the size and colour of the stars to create a festive and eye-catching display.

Ramadan cards

Create handmade Ramadan cards to send to friends and family. Use cardstock or construction paper as the base and decorate them with markers, stickers, or washi tape. Write heartfelt messages or blessings for the recipient to celebrate the spirit of Ramadan.
