DIY HOME DECOR WALL HANGING – ECO-FRIENDLY WARLI ART

This is another beautiful wall hanging made using home recycled (old/used) notebook paper, acrylic paints (Pidilite), super glue ( Fevikwik)/ hot glue and little bit of white cement ( optional – you can use it for a better texture). For information on how to home-recycle notebook paper, check the link – MADHUBANI LOTUS ON RECYCLED-PAPER

  1. Take the recycled notebook paper and put a lump of it on a sheet of plastic or rubber. Mold it into Warli figures. I moulded it into a man’s shape playing the dholki (an instrument) and a woman dancing with the music of the dholki. You can mould it into many other types of figures and leave it to dry.
  2. Now, use the remaining recycled paper paste to make a board according to the size of your figure(s) and leave it to dry.
  3. Once the figure(s) have dried completely (you can use a bit of white cement for a good texture), paint them using the acrylic colors. You can use various different colours and patterns.
  4. Paint the board with a block colour (I have used green as a neutral colour and it also looks really good on the background) using the acrylic paints. Leave both painted components of the craft to dry.
  5. Lastly, fix the figures onto the board firmly using super glue or hot glue and leave it to dry. The DIY WALL HANGING – ECO-FRIENDLY WARLI ART

SILLY SUPERSTITIONS

Does a black cat crossing your path,
Bring you misfortune, really?
Or is it not just a false belief,
Indicating that we are being quite silly,

And what do you think about split salt,
Of bad luck is it the delivery man?
YOU, can’t change your destiny or fate,

Haven’t you ever heard the proverb,
‘What you sow, shall you reap,’
And yet in such silly superstitions,
Do you think your belief you should keep?

Your bad luck and your misfortune,
Only depend upon you what you do,
Cause harm to others and no matter what,
Karma will never fail to get you,

Think before you act,
And I’ll tell you a fact,
If you harm none and be considerate,
No silly superstition will ever alter your fate!

WOODEN CHEST – WITH PAPER

This is a really simple craft that’s been made with materials easily available at home – old newspaper, acrylic paints, scale/a pair of scissors and glue.

  1. Take sheets of old newspaper and make sticks out of them of the same thickness and same length. Take another sheet of newspaper, cut it into a rectangular shape and paste all the sticks onto it.
  2. While the glue is still wet, put the paper (on which you stuck the sticks) around a bottle or any cylindrical object so that when it dries, it will obtain that shape. Leave it to dry.
  3. Meanwhile, start flattening the remaining sticks and stick them together in such a way that it should look like a oval shaped disk. Make two of these.
  4. Make the rose-shaped knobs and lock using paper and toothpicks. Paint them accordingly. Leave them to dry.
  5. Once the chest has dried stick the paper disks at the two open ends of the chest and paint it with dark brown acrylic paint. Leave it to dry.

DIY HOME DECOR WALL HANGING – ECO-FRIENDLY GANESHA

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 :

MADHUBANI LOTUS ON RECYCLED-PAPER

Steps for making the DIY Home Décor Wall Hanging of Lord Ganesh:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!!!

A TOPSY-TURVY EARTHQUAKE

Once upon a time,
Arrived a huge earthquake,
Which made me and my house,
Bounce about and shake,

It lasted for an hour,
Then it lost its power,
But that was quite enough,
For my house to flip over,

When I entered my house,
The sight made my jaw drop,
For the ceiling, fans and lights were on the floor,
While the tiled floor was on the top,

Stupefied at the scene,
My room I rushed to see,
Like a chandelier, hung my bed from the ceiling,
And my cupboard was far from where it used to be,

All the rooms I hurried through,
But it felt as though they were new,
Blankly, I had a seat on the ceiling,
Wondering if I was dreaming,

Suddenly everything started to shake,
And someone violently shook me awake,
Opened my eyes, I saw my mother and she said,
“You fell asleep reading about an earthquake!”
