Crafty Karwachauth

Karwachauth is the most romantic festival celebrated mainly in North India, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh , Himachal Pradesh and Gujrat. These days it is celebrated almost in every state of India and even in Pakistan and other countries too. One day fast is observed by women from sunrise to moonrise for the safety and longevity of their husbands.

Women gear up for this festival few weeks in advance. Here are some handcrafted beautiful things that you would like to add this karwachauth. That’s why I called it crafty karwachauth. First comes the pooja calender and karwa …. This is very tradition one that women used to draw on wall by rice paste. In present days very decorative and beautiful calenders are available in markets.
This special one is hand crafted brass karwa for special you. You need one clay karwa also …here it is

Now comes the thali for pooja. You can decorate one by your own. Its very easy just get some Bandhni print cloth, golden laces, sequins, beads or mirror and glue. try your hand on it and will come out like this

After pooja its a great idea to gift your beloved ones with hamper of ‘suhaag’. This is just awesome…

You can also go for jewellery boxes that comes in loads of varieties. You can even use them to beautify your place.                                                                                                                                               

This yellow glass case jewelry box is must have. It has beautifully carved metal rim that gives it elegance.

This one is to adorn your place. It is gold plated and lot of meenakari work all around and crystal top.

Now its time for some jewelery shopping. look at these elegant yet stylish pieces. These are all handcrafted jewelery. you too can try hands on it if you are that creative.your

This jhumkas are just beautiful thing to add in your collection.

No festival is complete without flowers and specially when the festival is exclusively for husband and wife. Try to gift such a beautiful bunch of flower to your beloved one and make his/her day.

These multicolor Gerberas are just perfect for that special day and for that special one.

Everything is perfect now and you can enjoy this very romantic festival your own style. Best wishes…..

Wall of fame!

Wall isn’t just a wall it is your own canvas, blank canvas. If you consider that the simplicity is the best policy in case of wall, then rethink because having a cold blank wall shows your dull personality.  Everyone wishes to have a beautiful home. You can add drama to your space and for that you have to be little creative.
I have lots of ideas to share with you.  
First of all select the wall that is focal point of your place. Now you can adorn your wall with number of elements like…
Wallpaper
Using wallpaper is the easiest way to give a texture to the wall. Choose light colors if you have small rooms. If you want to create an accent wall then wallpaper on just one wall can create that perfect look.

Wall Cladding
Another idea of having a textured wall is wall cladding. Cladding is use of  material like wood, fabric and metal on wall, right from the floor to the ceiling. Wood is elegant and classic cladding material. Other cladding materials are fabric, metal, coconut husk or anything interesting around you.

Shelves
Shelves not only change the look but can solve purpose of storing some stuff or showcasing your accessories too. Shelve enhances the beauty of wall dramatically. 
Wall Hanging
You can use fabric, quilt, tapestry or any other cloth that is no longer in use but you just can’t throw it away because of its beauty. You just need to be bit creative while using all these.


Framed Art                                                                                                                                              Use framed art work in interesting way to give your wall a warm and pleasing look. You can use single art piece or can create a gallery wall. Pictures can be your family photographs or art work done by any artist or your little one.
                                                                                                                                                                               
Wall Painting/Murals      
This can be a great fun for you. Add charm to your walls by painting either floral motifs or any other kind of art forms. It can be free hand or stenciled but outcome will definitely be rewarding.

Metal Work/Mirrors
Be it wooden, iron, brass or copper panels, you can use any kind of metal work according to your room’s theme your taste. Mirrors are latest trend to give you an illusion of bigger space. 

Wall Decals
Wall decal is a cheapest and quickest way to add some drama to your walls. Decals come in myriad variety and can be chosen according to the room, for kids room some colourful and funky decals are available while for living room there are decals with some lovely quotes that says a lot about love & family. 

Last but not the least, lighting also plays an important role to add warmth and to illuminate the area.
Adding few of elements from these given ideas can transform your place from dull to elegant, pleasing and wonderful.
Hope you find these tips useful.
