Festive Tissue Paper Flowers & Garland to Set the Autumnal Mood!

Friends, October is almost upon us and we can feel the mood reflected in the colours of the leaves, the nip in the air, the soothing afternoon sun, the festivities ahead and – the nature of our crafts!

Recently, Pari and her friend, Sama, made flowers and garland out of tissue paper. Their artwork reflects our love for Autumn and the festive season ahead. While making this, we also talked about the relevance of garland in the Indian culture and the various occasions that we use them – as offering to Gods, to welcome our guests, at marriage ceremonies, as hair decoration….
The list is endless!

I contributed this project as a guest post at Make and Takes – the very popular and creative blog that shares kids crafts, home projects, recipes and so much more. It's a truly inspiring hang-out!

Please jump over to have a look at our flower garland and get tons of other ideas at 'Make and Takes'.

But, hey! Please wait! 

While you are here, we'd love to know what festive art, craft or food are you making these days? (smiles)

Or, may be you are busy shopping for the kids, home, friends/family and – yourself. Ah, I love shopping too! Especially – the artsy stuff (wink wink!)

    Oh, how fun! I love the picture. No arts and crafts here lately – time has been so limited!

      Natalie,
      Sorry about this tardy reply. It’s been pretty hectic out here lately. I am just about managing to do a post.
      Talking about time – yes – gosh – I wish I had a few extra hours to the day!
