Happy Navratri

Hello dear friends.....wish you all a very Happy Navratri. Festival season has already started with Maa's arrival. The air of joy and energy comes with the festival of Navratri, the nine days of festivities culminates with the celebration of Vijayadashmi. Festival brings a kind of energy and freshness to mundane life. It is a time to celebrate goodness and peace.

Celebration time also means cleaning and decking up your abode and making yummy sweets and loads of food. This festival season, I am going to share some colourful crafty ideas here in my blog...hope you find them interesting. Here I am sharing some pictures of Maa Durga which I made using home made Salt Dough and painted it with the acrylic colour. Salt dough is made using equal amount of flour and salt. After making dough, you can make any figure and put it into oven for 1-4 hours depending on the thickness of the figure. After it cools down you can colour it. It is a fun project to do it with kids. For detailed instructions, here is the link.

Have a great weekend everyone!
