DIY Paper mosque lantern – Free printable!

IMG_0076 IMG_0065 Salaam Aleikum,

I hope your not tired of my Ramadan crafts yet ; ) Alhamdulillah this craft project turned out just like I pictured it, making those Ramadan nights even more beautiful. They are very easy to do and makes a perfect little gift to friends and family because they fit in an standard envelope alhamduillah.

What you will need:

Printed Mosque Lantern Pattern (download here)

Paper in A4 size (120-160 g or heavier)

Standard copy-paper (80 g) in 7,8 cm wide and 21 cm long.

A cutting mat

A bone folder

A  ruler

A craft knife /siccors

Glue stick

1. Print out the mosque lantern template twice (you will need one for the front and one for the back) 2. Put the ruler besides the dotted lines by the sides and press with the bone folder along the lines. This will make it easier to fold in the sides and create those sharp corners on the mosque. 3. Use your craft knife to cut out all windows and doors. 4. Now cut out the whole mosque by cutting away the thick gray lines. 5. Use your gluestick and glue on the mosque evenly (the same side). Now lay you copy-paper on and press carefully. 6. Cut away any access copy-paper 7. Glue or put the two paper mosques together and your done!

I didn’t cut out the windows and doors on the mosque being the backside. This is because I have mine placed to the wall, so you don’t see that side anyway. But if you will place the paper mosque lantern in the middle of a table, maybe for iftar or suhoor, then you can cut out the windows and doors on both sides. And remember to always be carefull when you light candles, never leave them unattended. The best way to be safe is to use a led-light inshallah.

    Hi, I am new to this and I am not sure how I can obtain the free lantern paper? This is so creative and I would love to have something like this in my living room around the Eid presents. I was looking for Islamic arts and lanterns for decorations and alhamdulilah this came up.
    Please let me know.

    Mashallah this is beautiful! I clicked on the PDF link but it only has 3 mosque templates and in your picture it shows 5. I did notice that one is made twice but the template is still missing the 4th pattern of another mosque. Could you please add it or am I misunderstanding something here? JAK
