We need to do the same for two cardboards. Cut the extras beyond the inner and outer circles.
Now we got two cardboard rings like structure.
Cut the stocking net in round shape and glue it on a ring covering the ring hole or gap. 
Glue the second cardboard ring over the netted ring, and press both rings tightly to get a strong fixing.
With using hot glue gun, glue one edge of the  woolen thread with the cardboard, insert the another edge into a large needle hole and wrap the thread around the ring in circular motion covering the whole part. 
Decorate the woolen covering with confetti, stones, beads, pumpkin seeds, or whatever available at home.
Using a push pin, hang the earring holder on wall, and hang your earrings using the net holes.
This craft is very simple and easy to make, and also very useful to hang our earrings.

WELCOME board craft with tea extract, salt, rangoli powder and waste plastic can!

I have made this craft with tea extract which is not good for making tea. I first thought to use it as a compost for pot plants. But after that I got an idea to make a craft with that.
Click here to visit my tutorial video or this craft!

Materials used:

Plastic can like milk jug
Tea extract
Rangoli powder
Glue, Glue gun
Pipe cleaner or cure pipes


First paint the cardboard with a background color (white).
Draw circles on the milk jug with two sizes 2.5inches and 1.5 inches. Cut the milk jug through the circles and keep separately.
Draw flower shapes on the circles and cut the flower petals.
Glue the smaller flower over the larger one and fix a confetti at its center. Do flowers as such as many as needed.
After the paint get dried completely, draw two rectangular outlines on the cardboard with 1 inch difference.
Now, it looks like, the cardboard has three sections. one is the outer border, the second one is the space between two lines and last one is the centre. Add glue and fix the pipe cleaner over the lines.
Apply glue over the whole part of the center portion and sprinkle the tea extract densely. Before the glue get dried, use the finger and write the word "WELCOME" with your own style.
Now the tea extract over the letters gets removed and the letters will appear bright. Apply glue on the letters and sprinkle the salt + glitter mixture.
For decorating the middle portion, apply glue for the whole part, and sprinkle the rangoli powder + glitter mix densely without any gap.
For the outer border, fix the plastic flowers one by one as a line using hot glue gun.
Finally, decorate with confetti, wherever needed.
That's all... the welcome craft is ready to hang, and, hang the board on the wall over the front door with using push pins or double tape.

Calendar paper floral wall craft with groundnut shells, pista shells and curry leaves sticks!

Materials used:

Waste calendar
Pizza cover
Ground nut shells
Pista shells
Curry leaves sticks
Glue or Glue gun


Tear a full sheet from the calendar and keep aside. Cut the pizza cover cardboard to a desired shape.
Wrap up the calendar paper over the cardboard for one whole side and glue the remaining paper over the other side.
Paint the paper with black color, thick background colors will hide the letters in the paper.
Glue the curry sticks like plant stem, and ground nut shells like flowers. We can either glue pista shells or single seeded small ground nut shells for leaves.
Paint the flowers and leaves with the colors of your choice and let them dry completely.
For root part, we can glue with either beach soil or color stones, both will look good for this craft.
Finally using double tape or push pins, hang or stick the craft on the wall.
That's all... A simple and cute wall craft is ready with the recycle materials. This craft is very apt for children.
Please give your feedbacks, after reading this blog, because your comments and feedbacks are more important for me to do better things and improve more.

Paper plate hanging craft with beads and pumpkin seeds!

Materials used:

Large paper plate - 1
Plastic ice-cream cup or small paper plate - 1
Empty milk jug or any plastic can
Woolen thread bundle
Pumpkin seeds
Plastic straws
Punching machine
Glue or Glue gun


Using punching machine, put holes over the whole side edges of the paper plate and ice-cream cup.
Click here to visit my tutorial video of this craft!
Cut the milk jug into sharp petal shapes (as like in picture), and glue the petals over the side edges of the  paper plate and ice-cream cup. It should be noted that, glue the petals after the holes, not on over the holes.
Paint the plates and decorate with glitters or confetti.

Bead flowers and Pumpkin seed flowers:

For making bead flower, take a large-sized round bead and glue the small beads over its sides like a flower.
For making pumpkin seed flower, take a large-sized round bead and glue the pumpkin seeds  over its sides like a flower (see the picture).

Flower hangings:

For making hangings for the large plate, join bead flowers and beads using woolen thread as show in picture, or make hanging with your own idea.

For making hangings for the small plate and the center, using woolen thread of approximate length, join pumpkin seed flowers, straws and beads as like I did, or make them of your own choice.

Finally insert the each hangings in each holes and tie up with the hangings of the second next.
The hangings of large plate should be smaller than that of the small plate, and the hangings of small plate should be smaller than the center hanging.
That's all... A beautiful paper plate hanging craft is ready to hang now. This craft is easy to make and definitely, this will be an added beauty to our home.
I hanged this craft at the center of the hall and it looks very beautiful.
