have always added grace and charm toa home’s entrance, but why not get your kids to make reusable
?1. Take a good quality mount board (available at any stationer's shop).These are available in standard sizes and can be cut into half with a sturdyscissor 3. Get your child to choose a square, hexagon, or a simple circle for the base of the
. We have a chosen a circle .Draw the maximum possible circle on half of the mount board. Cut the circle with a scissor.4.Take a small quarter plate and place it inside the big circle cut out of themount board.Draw the inner circle lightly using a pencil.5. Take some yellow colour in a palette or steel plate. Add two threedrops of water. Take a sponge and dip it into the yellow colour. Now dabthe same in the small circle on the mount board.
6. Take some orange colour in the palette and add some drops of water tothis. After the small circle is filled with yellow colour start dabbingorange colour over the rest of the mount board.7. You have a beautiful shaded effect of yellow and orange on the mount board. Leave it for ten minutes so the colours dries completely. Take redcolour in the palette. Place the ready made stencil in a desired pattern onthis shaded mount board.8. Hold the stencil in place tightly and using a fresh sponge apply the redcolour on the design cut out on the stencil. Dab it neatly. Do not addwater to the colour while using the stencil. Once the entire design has been filled with colour then lift the stencil gently. Wait for it to dry and place the stencil in a different direction to repeat the design.9. Continue the same procedure until you have the desired number of arms on the circular mount board.10. In case readymade stencils are not available, then we can make our own stencil. Take an A4 size paper and draw the desired design. Place anOHP sheet over this design and cut out the design using a sharp paper cutter. Take care to see that all parts of the design have to be independentand should not be touching or joined to each other. If you are making aflower for example, all five petals should have some gap from each other and there should be a gap between the centre and the petals also.11. Once the stencil design has been completed on the basic shadedmount board, outline the design using golden , silver or rainbow colour glitter. This will take an hour to dry. Apply a solution of glue and gloss or lamination glue and water in equal proportion to the entire mount board.Apply three coats and wait for fifteen minutes for each coat to dry. Whileapplying the last coat sprinkle gold or silver glitter powder as you applythe solution.12. A beautiful
in traditional colours is ready. You can make thesame in various shapes and sizes and have more than one , that is a set of three or five sections for the
.13. In the same way you can make a
for the door.14. Take small hexagon pieces of the mount board. You may need five tosix pieces for the
