Subtle Prints

Switch out your regular cushion covers, curtains, table cloths, or throw rugs for traditional songket, ikat, batik, or paisley prints – you can even DIY one from an old baju kurung! We also like geometric designs which are an integral part of Islamic architecture. The trick is to keep the rest of your colour palette in muted, solid tones.

Go Green…ish

Instead of traditional bright green, opt for pops of seafoam, turquoise, or blue-green shades. These can be accentuated with your favourite prints and decorations.

Yarn-Wrapped Letters

Yarn-wrapped letters that spell out ‘Eid’ or ‘Raya’ can be hung on your walls or placed on a mantel alongside other decorative pieces. You can find letter blocks at most craft stores – simply wrap them with yarn in complementary colours with the help of some good old craft glue.

Stars and Moon Mobile

The stars and crescent moon are imagery associated with this festive season – incorporate them into your home with mobiles made of old fabric glued to cardboard and yarn.

Ribbon Ketupat

Roll and glue thick pieces of fabric or construction paper together for fun ketupat decorations. Don’t be afraid to play around with different colours.

Fabric Canvas

Stretch a brightly coloured piece of traditional fabric (ikat and batik are our favourites!) across a canvas frame for an attention-grabbing piece of art.

Gallery Wall

Raid your albums for old Raya photos and print them out in black and white – your gallery wall will generate more nostalgic aww’s than a Petronas ad.

photo frame quotes

Mix and match your prints! Use pretty calligraphic fonts to recreate your favourite verses from the holy books or inspirational quotes that remind you of family and faith.

Crepe Paper Décor

Crepe rose balls make great additions to a forlorn looking side table.

We’re not going to lie – there are a lot of lights coming up. Crepe lanterns are easy decorative pieces that can be lit up with the help of a strand of LED lights.

Candle Holders

Replace your traditional lampu pelita with rows and rose of tea candles in star-shaped holders made out of paper.

Alternatively, wrap thin crepe paper around 4 lidi sticks to make a lamp with a tinted glow. If you’re afraid of strong winds, you can wrap the paper around solid glass holders.

Fairy Lights

Create a decorative crescent moon art piece with fairy lights wound around pliable wire.

geometric fairy light

Attach crepe paper folded in ketupat or geometric shapes to individual LED lights for a festive light garland.

We love this Tumblr’s answer to oil lamps! Line your walkway with mason jars filled with fairy lights. You can even hang them on your trees! Jazz them up further by coating the insides of the jar with glitter and glue, or wrap the outsides with ultra-thin crepe paper.
