This is a DIY Home Décor Wall Hanging of Lord Ganesh (Ganapati Bappa) made most importantly with home-recycled-old notebook-paper, a small amount of white cement (optional), acrylic paints (Pidilite preferably, if available easily) and hot glue gun/super glue ( Fevikwik preferably).
For detailed instructions on how to home recycle paper, check out the link of a former post in which I have given proper steps to recycle old and used notebooks pasted below :
Steps for making the DIY Home Décor Wall Hanging of Lord Ganesh:
- Make a good amount of the old and used notebook paper paste (for this craft, try to make the paper paste as fine as possible). Take a sheet of plastic, rubber or even a piece of cardboard and a put a lump of the paste onto it. Mold it into the shape of side ways facing head of Lord Ganesh as shown in the above image of the craft project. Adjust the size of the shape according to your opinion.
- Once it is properly molded, try to smoothen the top surface as much as possible and carefully soak access water with a piece of cloth. Leave it to dry in the sun for at least a day. Meanwhile, take another sheet of plastic, rubber or cardboard and put another (little bigger than the previous one) lump of the paste onto it. Mold this into a shape that closely resemble the Peepal leaf (Ficus religiosa or sacred fig leaf). Follow the same steps as you followed for Lord Ganesha’s side facing head.
- Once both the objects have dried, you can make a paste of white cement and apply a layer of it on the surface if it of the objects isn’t smooth enough OR you can paint the leaf and Lord Ganesha’s side facing head shape (you can paint your own color combination according to your choice) using acrylic paints as shown in the above image. Leave it to dry.
- Finally, take your hot glue gun or super glue and stick the Lord Ganesha’s side facing head shape onto the leaf shape and leave to dry. The DIY HOME DECOR WALL HANGING of ECO-FRIENDLY GANESHA is ready!!!
