Happy Birthday Wall Hanging!!

This year on Vikram’s Birthday I thought of making him a wall hanging Birthday card ūüôā When he woke up on his Birthday morning he saw it hanging¬†on the living room wall, he loved it!! Btw, he loves to play tennis, especially with our son Ansh so there had to be a tennis racquet in it ūüôā

Here are some pics of it.


Paper Doily Greeting Cards

I bought a pack of paper dolies at Walmart a sometime back and was thinking to use it in my craft work since then.¬†So here are¬†some cards that¬†I made using paper doilies …check them out!!

A little bit of organizing

I thought of organizing my home a little bit last week, so I gathered all the waste material I had and used it as an opportunity to do some craft work with my son. We made these receipt/coupon holders out of cereal boxes, made some treat¬†holders out of Preserves’ bottles, craft supplies box out of a shoe box, re used the old carton to organize crayons and markers, and decorated an old white box¬†in which Ansh fondly keeps his small cars.

Table Mat Wall Hanging

 I made this wall hanging almost a year back for Basant. The flower petal shapes were cut out of maroon and green decorative papers brought from India.  Cutting and gluing was easy, the only hard part was to come up with the design.

Red and Orange Wall Craft

This is  a very simple and easy to make wall decor completely made out of patterened paper. It was easy to begin with and finish in less than two hours. I think I have become a fan of tassels lately and so every decor I make somehow includes a tassel and moreover I have a big ball of red hemp which keeps waiting to be used. These were sold at Satsang Exhibition sale at New Jersey Zonal Satsang (2009).
