Our body they protect,
From various dangerous diseases,
That in our body cause a defect,

Drink fresh fruit juice,
Eat a delicious curry,
Thinking of all the yummy fruits and vegetables,
Your stomach must be asking you to hurry!!!

DIY HOME DECOR – COLOURFUL KNITTED WALL HANGING

This is a very colorful home décor wall hanging made mostly out of knitting. Materials required are newspaper sheet (or any circular rim as per the size you require), acrylic paints (preferably Pidilite), hot glue or Fevicol, different colored wools- green, dark green, yellow, pink, purple, orange and black.

  1. Take a circular rim and paint it with black acrylic paint and leave it to dry OR take the newspaper sheet and make a stick out of it. Take the two ends of your newspaper stick and join them using glue. Then make the stick curve and adjust it according to the shape of a circle. Paint the newspaper stick circle black using acrylic paint.
  2. Take black wool (or any color wool and dip it in black paint and leave it to dry) and cut strings according to your circular rim, as shown in the above image attach the strings in a crisscross pattern.
  3. Take your different colored wool and start making flowers and leaves out of it. To make the stem, take your dark green wool and cast on 3 stitches on your knitting needle and simple continue knitting the 3 stitches till it reaches such length where you can wrap the stem around your circular rim. For full knitting guide, I recommend you to visit Studio Knit ( https://www.studioknitsf.com/). In this wall hanging you will need to know basic knitting, increase and decrease.

4. After you finish knitting leaves, flowers and stem. Wrap the stem around the circular rim as shown in the above image and stick it firmly using Fevicol or hot glue. Then take your leaves and flowers and stick them firmly using hot glue on the net created by the crisscross of the black wool. Leave it to dry.

The best part of this DIY Home Décor Wall Hanging is that it looks really pretty on the wall and is easy to make. For more fun Home Décor Wall Hangings, visit the links given below:

SPECIAL PAINTING- THE NIGHT VIEW

This is a special painting done by a good friend and teammate- Megha. This is a painting of the beautiful night sky with the silhouette of natural landscape. The best part of this painting is the beautiful way in which all the colors in the night sky have been brought out along the white spots giving the starry effect and the way in which the silhouette of the tree and landscape goes along with it all!!!

BEST OUT OF WASTE + SHAMPOO BOTTLES MAKEOVER

These are two empty shampoo bottles which have been given a makeover as a best out of waste items. Materials required are – acrylic paints (Pidilite), glue, craft paper/ pieces of cloth, old plastic jar lids and decorative material (optional).

  1. Take the caps off the empty shampoo bottle(s) and cut the bottle(s) in such a way that the hollow part is levelled at the bottom.
  2. Take the craft paper/ piece of cloth and wrap it around the bottle(s) seeing that it covers about half of the bottle(s). At the front side make a collar shape so that it looks like a coat and stick the ‘coat(s)’ neatly around the bottle(s). In case of the man shown above, a tie is included which has to be made and stuck before making the coat.
  3. Paint the remaining half of the bottle(s) using acrylic paint – peach/ peach mixed with a bit of brown to make proper skin color. Let the color dry up completely. Paint the face(s) on the bottle(s) using black, white and red (notice the slight pink painted on the cheeks, as eye shadow and on the lips, in the case of the female character.)
  4. Take black, brown or whichever other color you wish to paint the hair with and paint it on the top of the bottle(s) ( again, in case of the female character paint the hair all along the back of the bottle and in the front. For the male character, paint the hair in a neat decrease at the backside of the bottle.)
  5. Lastly, make the hats using the old plastic jar lids and decorative material (optional). Take the jar lid(s) and attach a ring of craft paper / cover it with a piece of cloth and stick it properly using glue. Give a coat of paint to make it look like a actual hat. Use the decorative material to decorate the hat(s).

The best part of this craft is that it looks quite funny, good and can be used as puppets or even as home decor.

NEWSPAPER MOTORBIKE

This is an old-fashioned motorbike made from old newspaper rolls, paint and glue. It is very simple to make with all you have to do is roll strips of the old newspaper in different shapes for different parts( I suggest taking wide strips especially for the tires of the motorbike so it will be able to stand upright) of the motorbike (as shown in the above image) and glue them together as different parts of the motorbike. Lastly, once the glue has dried, paint the motorbike with acrylic paint (I suggest using Pidilite or Camlin paints) of your choice. The best part of this craft is that it is easy to make, doesn’t take much time and looks quite good to keep as home décor item/ showpiece.
