How to Make Eco Friendly Rakhi?
- Cotton Thread
- Silk threads
- Beads, pearl or sequins
To make a colorful rakhi take the multicolored cotton or silk threads or you can also take the red cotton thread that is called 'mauli' in India. Keep the thread long enough for tying a knot on your brother's wrist.
Take golden thread and wrap it around the bunch of threads and at the end tie a knot with the same. Leave a bit of end for tying a knot to give it a brush look. If you want then you can cut the end of brush to give it more even look.
Now take glue and embellishments you have bought such as pearls, beads, sequins. Apply glue on the center of the thread, you have made and stick one of these items there. Now depending upon the size of thread and number of embellishments, you can paste these to decorate your Rakhi.
