Paper Quilled Ganesha and Om
Posted by amrita at 7:56 PM
I made this paper quilled Ganesha and Om with diya (clay lamp used traditionally in India for Diwali) for this Diwali. Diwali is on 17th Oct and most of us spend a lot of time cleaning and decorating our houses for Diwali. I thought it would be a better idea to post a craft project inspired by Diwali beforehand so that if any of you want to try it you can.
Here are the supplies for the project:
- Quilling strips
- Slotted quilling tool
- Glue and Scissors
- Shadow box (to frame the project)
There are a ton of patterns available for Ganesha on internet. I love this one cause it has the sacred symbol Om , Ganesha and well as a diya, fully capturing the auspicious occasion. Refer my previous posts for details on paper quilling.
Wish you all a happy and safe Diwali. Enjoy the festivities.
