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.
