Dried Dates Wreath

As Eid-ul-Adha slowly makes it way out of autumn and into summer, embrace the season before it’s gone with a stunning fall wreath. Our autumn Eid wreath is made with dried dates as a nod to the Prophetic tradition of celebrating Eid with dates. Hang this wreath above a table or on a door for festive party decor.

Materials

  • 16″ foam wreath form
  • 5 packets of dried dates, 400g each
  • Dark brown all-surface spray paint (read label to ensure it can be used on styrofoam)
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Wire hook for foam wreaths
  • Golden ribbon, 1 1/2 meter.

Steps

  1. Spray paint foam wreath and let dry.
  2. Secure a row of dates onto inside of wreath using glue gun, and another row of dates onto outer edge.
  3. Then arrange dates onto surface of wreath in a brick-like pattern, overlapping with the row of dates on the edges. Continue filling the surface of the wreath all the way around.
  4. Finish by applying more rows of dates to the outer and inner edges of wreath till foam is covered.
  5. At back, attach hook to wreath by inserting wire legs completely into foam.
  6. Tie ribbon around wreath and hang onto wall.

TIP: Empty all 5 packets of dates onto a large tray. Sort through sizes and apply larger dates first while using the smaller dates to fill in gaps.
