Women's day Celebration

Women's day Rangoli 

 Belated Women’s day wishes friends….. How was your women’s day celebration ….???

I want to tell you one thing…. On last year women’s day celebration, our university organized some contests. We were participated on Rangoli competition and won 2nd prize. Janani, mala and myself put that rangoli. 

We have described the activities of women's in different fields like education, sports, music, house keeping etc. It's really hard to draw all within particular time. So we planned to express social activities of women's through folk art called warli. 

They have given an hour time. We used Crystal salt with color powder.  Even we couldn’t complete the kolam on time, we deserved the prize. Because of our Spontaneous answers to Judge’s questions… They asked so many questions actually…. 

Surprise was, only our photo (taken while we get prize) published on next day's news paper on behalf of entire celebration….

Here is our rangoli... Photo taken from second floor…

Nylon Stocking Serial Light

Hi friends….

Come let us decorate our home with dazzling serial light…

Generally the houses will be lit up with hundreds of tiny electrical lights on special occasions.…Those are known as serial lights because the bulbs are serially wired. You can get it from any local electrical shops.

 I wanted something special to decor my pooja room and chose this light. I transferred the serial light into beautiful glowing flower bunch.…

I made this craft 5 years ago (don’t know where it has gone now) when I got the procedure from a TV program. I just found the photo today and started blogging…  

Materials needed:

Serial light of any color (I bought blue color serial light, so that same blue stocking I used… )
Nylon Stocking cloth
Aluminum wire (silver color)
10  number thread or nylon thread
Green tape

How to do :

Tie a bunch of three bulbs.

Make petals with aluminum wire and stocking cloth. The procedure is same as of wings making in Nylon stocking butterfly.

Then consider the light bunch as stamens and attach three petals one by one, around the bunch.

Wind green tape to cover the tied stock.

Continue the same process for making all flowers. 

Add some artificial leaves.

Now arrange them in a basket as I did, otherwise place them at pooja room or racks or car dashboard or wherever you want

Switch ON the light…

See how it looks…. NICE na.....???
