Make Your Own Rakhi

Arts and Crafts

What You Need:
  • 48-inch yellow woollen thread
  • 4-inch flexible wire
  • 12 blue, 6 red and 2 yellow beads
  • Scissors
  • Bend the flexible wire into a loop, with the help of an adult. Loop the woollen thread over itself till you have 4 equal lengths, as shown in the picture.
  • Insert the wire in both the loops of the thread. This will be used as a needle.
  • Slide two red beads through the wire onto the thread.
  • Slide a blue bead through the wire onto the thread.
  • Separate the loops to create 2 loops as shown. Use the wire to slide 4 blue beads, 2 on each loop.
  • Bring both the loops together and insert a blue bead through the wire, onto the thread. Slide on 2 red beads too.
  • Add 2 yellow beads.
  • Repeat steps 6, 5, 4 and 3.
  • Tie knots on both sides of the thread just after the beads. Cut the loops on both ends. Your rakhi is ready!
