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.
