Gowri Ganesha Festival Preparations -Cotton Art

2 decades ago, making cotton garlands for dieties was part of festive preparations. Thanks to small scale industries in India, these things are readily available in wide range of designs. Revisiting an old hobby after a long time made my day.

 I am posting this half way through the preparations...

Materials needed :

Bandage cotton roll : 1
Thick sheet of paper , color paper, glitter, beads,

Trace the design of necklace on the thick sheet of paper and cut it out.
Place the design on cotton and trace it with a color pen. Cut the cotton and glue it to the thick paper design. The paper provides support to the cotton design. Decorate the cotton garland as you like!

 It is fun to teach children, isn't it?

Happy Gowri Ganesha Festival to all my readers :)
