During Eid, the crescent moon, a global emblem of Islam, is prominently displayed. Metal, which is renowned for its toughness and classic style, gives your décor a hint of contemporary elegance. Here's how to change your home for the festival by incorporating metal elements with a crescent moon theme, as suggested by Palash Agrawal, founder/director of Vedas Exports.

A warm welcome

Set the tone for your celebrations right from the doorway. Hang a large crescent moon-shaped metal cut-out above your front door. It can be a simple, elegant silhouette or adorned with intricate Islamic geometric patterns. For an extra touch of festivity, string fairy lights around the cut-out, creating a warm and inviting welcome for guests.

A focal point of celebration

The living room is the heart of your Eid gatherings. Here are some ways to make it shine with crescent moon-themed metal pieces:

· The majestic wall art

Create a stunning focal point with a large metal crescent moon wall art piece. Choose a design that complements your existing décor. It could be a minimalist crescent moon with a textured finish, a crescent moon adorned with calligraphy depicting an Eid greeting, or a crescent moon with a cut-out design that allows light to cast beautiful shadows on the wall.

· The hanging lantern delights
Suspending metal lanterns from the ceiling adds a touch of magic to your living room. Opt for crescent moon-shaped lanterns with intricate cut-outs that cast beautiful light patterns when lit with tea lights.

A setting for sharing

Families and friends gather in the dining room for the celebratory Eid feast. Here are some ways to incorporate crescent moon-themed metal pieces to elevate the ambiance:

· The table runner with character

Dress your dining table with a unique metal table runner. It can be a simple crescent moon-shaped runner or one with intricate Islamic geometric patterns etched into the metal. The metallic sheen adds a touch of sophistication and complements your festive table setting.

· The napkin ring elegance

Elevate your table setting with crescent moon-shaped napkin rings. These can be simple metal rings or intricately designed pieces with Islamic motifs. They add a touch of class and ensure your napkins stay neatly folded throughout the meal.

A touch of Eid everywhere

The beauty of crescent moon-themed metal pieces lies in their versatility. Here are some additional ways to incorporate them into your Eid décor:

· The doorknob delight

Replace your regular doorknobs with crescent moon-shaped ones. This subtle touch adds a festive flair to every doorway in your home.

· The balcony beauty

Hang crescent moon-shaped wind chimes on your balcony. As the gentle breeze sways them, they create a soothing melody, adding a touch of serenity to your Eid celebrations.

A personal touch

Embrace your creativity and personalise your Eid décor with DIY metal crafts. Here are some ideas:

· The glittering garland

Cut-out crescent moon shapes from thin sheet metal. Paint them in vibrant colours and string them together with colourful ribbons to create a beautiful garland. Hang it across doorways, around windows, or along the edge of your mantelpiece.

· The tea-light oasis

Find a small metal bucket or vase. Spray paint it in a festive colour like gold or silver. Line the bottom with sand and place a tea-light candle in the centre. Arrange decorative pebbles and seashells around the candle to create a miniature beach scene. Group these DIY candle holders on your coffee table or bookshelf for a whimsical touch.
