Mawlid Windows

This year I added window decorations to our Mawlid program.

I used all the same ornaments as our Mawlid Mobile but smaller.

For the birds I used lasercut pieces I bought on  The cloud was made exactly like the large centrepiece for the Mawlid Mobile: The Cloud.


For the fish Zalmusa I made a medallion.

I found the blue and green tinsel at the mall and thought it would work as a nice surround for the fish, cloud and birds because it could suggest water or sky.  My windows are not close to electrical outlets so the reflective quality of the tinsel helps with the fact that I cannot illuminate the windows up with holiday lights.


Please share your Mawlid decorating ideas with us here so that we can be inspired by you.
