Are you looking for last minute Krishnasthami/Janmashtami projects?
Here is a tutorial that is super easy and quick to DIY lord Krishna’s feet for this year celebrations.
Traditionally, to draw the feet – rice batter is used (either rice soaked and grinded or adding water to rice flour). It is usually hand drawn. However, if you are living outside India most of homes have carpet and it might be difficult to have it in traditional way.
Also, to make it colorful and get festive feel these foam Lord’s feet or kundan feet rangoli are best alternative.
Well, this is a last minute project for me too…;-) Yesterday in my visit to Dollar Tree – I found these cute feet shaped foam cutouts. It comes in multiple colors and ofocurse blue is perfect color for this occasion.I couldn’t resist to make it and share it with you all 😀
The other supplies you need are school glue, fancy rhinestones/beads/kundans.
Step 1 : Add some basic school glue all along the outline of the foam feet cutout
Step 2: Here I added a bead ball chain and for toes a matching or contrasting glitter foam and cut into small dots and glue it. Another way is to add some fancy lace and beads. Let the glue dry.
Step 3: Add any additional embellishments to make Lord’s feet cute and festive.
You can also use these feet as floor rangoli like here
All I added was a flute with multiple color glitter foam sheets.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial and lastly, here is a picture of my handmade Krishna in Tulasi vanam from last year (2015).
HAPPY JANMASTAMI !!
