Rakhi festival is incomplete without Rakhi thread; this festival includes love and care between brothers and sisters. Prior to two or three week of this festival, brothers and sisters keep themselves busy in buying and sending Rakhi online and Rakhi gifts to Delhi, Chennai, and anywhere in India as well as overseas.
But, according to me nothing can be better and precious way to express your sisterly emotion and love than offering a hand-made Rakhi to your brother. It’s the best day to impress your brother with your creativity, as you also enjoy the whole process of making rakhi for your brother with your own hands. Don’t worry, if you are not able to find an idea to start it off with the process of creatively designing Rakhi for your dear brother. Here we have jotted down five unique ideas of making Rakhis at home that will definitely help you out:
Home-made Kalava Rakhi
In Mumbai, it’s really easy to collect shells from the sea. If you are one of them who is living in Mumbai and any area where you have the pleasure of to watch through the beauty of the sea, then Kalava Rakhi is really a good idea for making this Rakhi cost-effective. Why not make a Rakhi using shells? For this, you should have Kalava thread, shells, beads and sequins. Just take a long thread and crinkle it from the middle. Place a religious sign like Om or Rudraksha in the center and decorate rest part of the thread with tiny beads, shells and sequins.
How to make Rakhi using an Old Locket?
You must have beautiful and precious locket you no longer use… right? There is no better way to respect your family inheritance than using an old locket for making Rakhi. For making this, you just need an old locket, beads and silver or golden thread. Collect five or six silver or golden threads for making the string. Place gold or silver beads in the middle of the string and tie an old locket to it. Tie both the ends strongly, so that beads do not come out of Rakhi thread. Make sure that you are using locket with some religious symbols.
Colors are the main part of any festival celebrated in India and when it comes to the auspicious festival of Rakhi, why not use colors to make this festival more cheerful and worthy. For making hand-made multi-colored Rakhi, you must have old pieces of fabric or any multi-colored threads, several beads and sequins. Make sure you include yellow and red color thread, as these two colors are known as sacred color for this festival. After that, tie all the thread together for the purpose of making Rakhi string. At last, just decorate the upper part with beautiful beads or any religious symbols that you have at your home like Swastik and OM.
Sandalwood Beads Rakhi
If you have at your home some sandalwood that has been lying spare for many days then definitely it’s a chance for you to make Rakhi on your own. For this, you will need some Red plait, Sandalwood beads, some glue and glossy gift wraps. For making it, just take a red thread and make its plaits to make string. Cut a preferred shape of glossy gift paper and stick it on the middle of the thread. After that, take some sandalwood beads and decorate its upper part creatively. Make sure that you stitch it properly so that there is no chance of coming out again and again.
Sponge is one of the most common waste items everyone have it in their home. Making beautiful Rakhi thread through this material is actually easy. You just need some common things like multicolored threads, sequins, beads and sponge. Before starting through the process, you just have to look after these steps: first take multi-colored threads and braid them beautifully. Later on, take a waste sponge and cut it into different shapes like star, heart or round according to your choice and requirement. Decorate them with beads and mix some golden threads to give it a ravishing look.
