Indian Festive Decor Ideas

The festive season is upon us and this is very exuberant time of the year. 
Monsoon rain has eased in most places and there a nip in the air. There is an excitement and enthusiasm in the atmosphere which is quite infectious. On this cheerful festive occasion, I have some easy tips and ideas to decorate your home to set the mood for festivities.

Strings Of Marigold:
Nothing beats the beauty of real marigold but buying them in abundance during festivities can burn a hole in your pocket. So here is a way to make your own marigolds provided either you have some time on your hands or you have some helping hands. Here's a video on how to make your own marigold (Audio quality in the video is not very good but instructions are clear).

Now, what if you neither have enough time nor have any helping hand. Then the easiest way is to buy faux marigold strings that can be found in local markets and can be seen in abundance during the festivities. Though these are more expensive than real marigolds (4 feet long string can cost you anything between 70-90 bucks) but on the bright side, they are washable and reusable. So you can use them multiple times and can store them when they are not needed. I have seen some really good quality marigold strings online as well.


These marigold strings create the perfect backdrop for festive decor. You can see the festive cheer added by these marigold strings in below images.

Mirror Hangings:
Apart from the liveliness added by flowers festivals are about adding lots of bling too. So let's create blingy hangings. You'll need thread, embroidery mirrors, marigolds and hot glue. Here's the process:
