Ganesha Door Hanging/Wreath

Standard

Ganesh Pooja/Chaturthi is fast approaching and I am sure all of us are getting ready to celebrate the festival with full gusto.

It is one of the biggest Hindu festivals of India and personally my favorite one and I don’t miss a chance in making it special every year 🙂 So, when it comes to decorations all of us want to have something new every year and if you are in India it is easy to go shop for festive decorations.

Staying abroad, it may not be easy…so, why not make one by yourself.

Here is an easy and quick project that you can make with very few supplies.

This is just not a wreath or door hanging but can be used as wall decor or even prayer/puja room decorations.

Lets see what you need :

Cardboard piece (round shape)

Glitter foam sheets  from Hobby Lobby/dollar store

Scissors (foam/fine tip preferably)

cardstock or scrapbook paper

Ganesha silhouette printed on A4

Glue, carbon/transfer paper, glue gun, fancy ribbon

Step 1: Pick an image of Ganesha silhouette and flip it (mirror image). Flipping the image is necessary because when you stencil the ganesha image on to the foam sheet you will be doing on the wrong side(non-glitter) of the sheet.

Step 2: Use a carbon/transfer paper and transfer the image on to the wrong side of the glitter sheet

Step 3: Using fine tip scissors or foam scissors cut the foam pieces

Step 4: Cover the cardboard piece with matching cardstock/scrapbook paper and glue the ganesha foam pieces and add a string to hang it. I made this for last year Diwali so I  glued some foam diya cut-outs around the wreath base.

And you have a cute wreath/wall decor ready to use. This can be used for any festival or auspicious occasions.

About Nima

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
