Hi guys! This coming week is gonna be a fest for all of us. Tomorrow being our 70th Independence day, there’s that celebration followed by Rakshabandhan which is the most awaited day for all the sisters. We get to tie rakhis on all our brother’s wrist, get together with our cousins, get gifts from them. Basically, all sisters and brothers have blast together on this day. And saying that I thought it would be great to make a Rakhi DIY for “our” day. It is super simple and super quick to make.
Things you will need are.
- Glittery Ribbons of different widths
- Tiny kundan patch
- Fancy decorative string
- Fabric glue
- Thread and needle
- Small piece of cardboard
How to make it:
1. Accordion Fold : Take the broader width ribbon and fold it in accordion style, placing the folds at every half centimeters (shown in fig.2 below). Fan out the accordion piece to the circle. Stitching the ends. There you will get the first large circle.
2. Similarly, make the second smaller circle by giving it an accordion fold.
3. Now it’s time to attach the two pieces together. For that, you will need a hard base. I used a tiny cardboard from the cereal box and used it to secure the stitch. Keeping the cardboard piece at the base, pass the needle through the bigger circle followed by the small circle piece and secure it by again passing the needle backward ( from smaller circle to the cardboard ). Tie a knot at the end and you will get the circles ready.
3. With the help of fabric glue stick the kundan patch on the fabric circle. Let it dry. You can make your own kundan patch if you want, it can be of any shape or color.
4. Now cut the fancy cotton string as per your need.
5. Glue the circle pieces on the string and secure it one stitch. Instead of just keeping the hard ends, I rubbed the ends of the string on my jeans to make it look cuter.
Your rakhi is ready!
