This is the first craft I did for Ramadan – and actually, this gave me the idea of undertaking the challenge of a 15 day Ramadan crafts.
The cold porcelain ingredients:
- 1/2 cup Glue
- 1/2 cup Corn starch
- 1 teaspoon Oil
- 1 teaspoon Lemon juice
In a microwave safe bowl, I mixed the glue & cornstarch thoroughly and then added lemon and oil to it and mixed again, till it was well combined. Then I put the Bowl in a microwave for 30 sec. Once it was out it was pretty much liquid is, I mixed it again and popped it back in the Microwave for another 30 sec. This time it was a semi-solid mass which started to come together. (see no. 5). At this point, I put it aside to let it cool a bit and transferred it to a wax paper with some cornstarch sprinkled on it.
I kneaded it a bit to the point a tear drop forms when you pull the dough apart. Then just store it in a ziplock.
Once you have the porcelain dough ready, you can make million of things with it. I chose to do the easiest. I rolled a bit of dough and hand-drew small crescent onto it and cut it using a blade.
Then I cut a star and colored both yellow. I also painted glitter on it too.
Normally, cold porcelain is air dry porcelain and it is left for 24-48 hours to completely dry. But well, it was a long wait. So I just put it in a microwave for 1 minute. It came out awesome so I put it back to the microwave for another minute. This time it was slightly blackened, but was so hard already! Brilliant I thought! 😉
Then I just used a floss to attach the star with the crescent and glued a loop on the top.
It was awesome, we loved it 🙂
This marked the end of my 15-day Challenge. I decided to do interesting, different but easy crafts and I hope I served the purpose. Happy Ramadhan everyone 🙂

Very cool craft for children to do for Ramadan thanks for sharing it with everyone
I am so lazy to commit to crafts even though I love the idea! If I sit to make something I strive for perfection and that takes a lot of time which puts me off to start! Great crescent moon for Ramadan!
I know i hd been working on porcelain roses for the craft post but well – i just settled on a crescent and a star instead
But do try out something this ramadan 🙂
This looks so nice.. Can’t wait to do this with my kiddos esp since they love crafting
This is so creative! Kids will love these craft ideas.
We never had decorations for Ramadan at home….looking out these crafts and arts…InshaAllah I am planning to do some this Ramadan….the crescent and star are looking beautiful….thank you for sharing the pictorial….

You’ve inspired me by your Ramadan Craft Challenge to do so many crafts this Ramadan with my children. Though ours were a bit more simple, we have made so many nice things and we all really enjoyed it. I pray Allah will reward you for your efforts.
