Mawlid Banner

This year I was inspired by one of our contributors to make a Mawlid banner with the Mawlid Sandals of the Prophet (a).


I made cut outs for each letter in green cardstock and then white.  I painted the letter with watercolour and added laser cut birds, ink stamps and jewel stickers.

I then made cut outs in the shape of lamps for the green lamp of the Prophet (s).

I then used a hole punch to make two punctures at the top of each piece.  Then I ran some ribbon through the holes and hung the banner in the door way to our prayer room.

Please share your ideas for Mawlid decorating so that we can be inspired by you.
