Rakshabandhan is a celebration of an enduring bond of adoration between brother and sister.

On this auspicious day, a sister ties a beautiful Rakhi around her brother’s wrist which signifies the sister’s love, and the long-cherished longing for his brother. In return, the brother gives blessings and also gives some gift to his sister as a token of affection.

These days, multifarious rakhis are available for sale in the market, but it is not safe to go and do some shopping in this pandemic state, infect should not even step out! Why put yourself and your people in menace.

Undoubtedly, stay home, stay safe is the basic mantra of this time.

And uncommonly, make some precious threads for your brother at home with your own hands. It would be an offbeat joy to fasten a rakhi to your brother, that crafted by you only.

The warmth and ecstasy of those “DIY handmade rakhis” would be indescribable.

Grab some beads, and paste them on the every edge of the star with fabric glue. Then cut a small bow-shaped piece from any colorful paper sheet and paste it on the top of the eyes.

Also, glue a golden bead or sequin to complete this bow. For making its string, cut a small circle- shaped piece of a paper, and paste it at the center of the ribbon.

Again apply some glue on this circle, and past the star piece to this circle. So your starfish rakhi is ready to tie.

What do you need:

  • Foam Sheet
  • White paper
  • Basic Crayons
  • Fabric Glue
  • Cotton
  • 3D Outliner (or any sparkle glue)
  • Ribbon

This colorful rakhi is my favorite, and for designing it you need to cut a foam sheet piece of the size of 5×6 cm. Then draw five lines with fabric glue and paste your favorite colors from the crayons packet.

Now, this is important…that you need to paste each crayon higher than an earlier crayon, like the below image. I tried to give a VIBGYOR effect to my rakhi and you can choose your style.

Now, paste a ribbon at the backside of the foam sheet and cover it with a small square piece of a plain paper, as we did in our above rakhi tutorials.

After that, cut a cloud- shaped piece from a white paper and paste it on the top of the crayons. To give a cloud and rain effect, you need to stick some simple cotton on this cloud piece and decorate it with 3D outliner or any sparkle glue.

Leave it for a few hours as this sparkle takes time to get dry. At last, your rainbow and clouds are set to flaunt.
