Quilled ganeshji and lumba rakhi

Hi ppl

Brother and sister relation is a very special bond always, but it is that time of the year when we indians pay a little more attention to out sibling! Yes Rakhsa bandhan it is! 

Raksha Bandhan, (the bond of protection) or Rakhi is a Hindu festival primarily observed in IndiaMauritius and Nepal, which celebrates the relationship between brothers, cousins and sisters.The festival is marked by the tying of a rakhi, or holy thread, which comes in many colors and designs, by the sister on the wrist of her brother. The brother in return offers a gift to his sister and vows to look after her as she presents sweets to him. 

Sharing with you, the rakhis i made for my brother and sister in law last year! Yeh i am that lazy somtime.. :)

Made a quilled rakhi with ganeshji for my brother. Sprinkled some sparkle. Loved it!
We also have the ritual to tie rakhi to SIL which is tied to the bangel..just love the danglers i get to tie too!! This dangler is called lumba rakhi. Made a quilled cone and decorated with beads and stones. It is quiet sturdy with a fevicol coating inside, which makes it firm on drying and gives  a nice shine too.

Are you inspired to make a quilled rakhi too? Do lemme know how you liked it.

Sending this to :
