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
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 thedholki (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.
Now, use the remaining recycled paper paste to make a board according to the size of your figure(s) and leave it to dry.
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.
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.
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
This is a simple sketch of the peace sign which I had held up in front of me in order to sketch this. The best part is the shape of all the fingers and the fact that it has been done with a ball point pen!!!
This is a simple colour-pencil sketch of a copper utensil called Tambya in Marathi. Nothing much to say except that the shading of the different colours play a major role in making the Tambya look realistic!!!
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!!!
