For many, there is something really satisfying about creating things. And during the COVID-19 lockdown, more and more people have been turning to craft kits to better themselves (and kill some hours). Whether it’s tinkering in something to bolster their creative side, to help keep their spirits up or stop them from scrolling through Instagram, there’s been an undeniable do-it-yourself boom. Here are two kits we feel are perfect to make during Ramadan.
DIY Floristry Kits From Maison Des Fleurs
Without a doubt, floral arrangements really help brighten up any family gathering place. They also make the perfect centerpiece to uplift your table setting during Ramadan. If you’re thinking of creative ways to while away some time in a social distancing-friendly way, which allows you to enjoy being surrounded by beautiful blooms in your home, Maison Des Fleurs is offering DIY Floristry Home Kits.
The Dubai-based luxury floral boutique, which also has a beautiful Ramadan collection, wants to help you acquire the fundamentals of faux floristry in the comfort of your own home. Through the kits, which are available in different sizes and in pink or coral tones, you can learn to curate floral design with the help of an instructional video tutorial. Each kit contains a vase, floristry foam with preserved moss already inserted, wrapped and disinfected loose flowers, a flower cutter, gloves and access to the video tutorial.
Maison des Fleurs’ faux flowers are made from the finest silk, hand painted with meticulous detail, and their longevity guarantees a lasting home decor piece. They can also act as a daily reminder to keep things fresh and new in one’s daily routine. To further amplify that Ramadan spirit, you can accessorise your faux floral arrangement with lanterns, coffee trays or even fairy lights to illuminate your colourful and vibrant efforts.
DIY Coffee and Tea Set Kits From aura
Coffee, which actually originated in the Arab world, tea and dates, are known to play a large part in the region’s hospitality rituals. And with the hot drinks being the perfect accompaniment to dates, a Ramadan staple, they are undoubtedly popular at family get-togethers during the Holy Month.
One way to serve coffee and tea while putting a smile on your loved one’s faces this Ramadan is to do it with something made with some tender loving care. Thankfully, Saudi Arabia's modern interior brand, aura, has launched its first-ever DIY kit, which includes either a traditional dellah (coffee pot) and coffee cups or a set of six teacups for customers to choose from. They come along with kid-friendly porcelain paints and brushes.
The kits have been introduced as response to the coronavirus outbreak, with the aim of bringing joy, bonding and exploration of the arts into the home. The company has pledged to donate all profits to support the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization.
