Door decors have traditionally great importance in our life.
In any season, you can decorate your home door in a traditional
way, more so during festival times. It is an easy and interesting
activity to make ‘Torans’ at home.
Time For the activity: 15-20 min
Things needed: Green colored craft paper,
cord / string, foam flowers, glue, glitter and scissor
How to make:
Usually, Torans are made from the fresh flowers and leaves.
But, we are going to make leaves
from craft paper and use foam flowers.
Step 1: Fold a 16" square green colored craft paper in such a way
that 4 folds are made on top of one other. Draw a leaf on
the paper with pencil and carefully cut the leaf shape with
scissor. Draw a vine on each leaf with the glue and put the
glitter on it. Now the leaf is ready with the glittered vines.
This step will make 4 leaves. Make as many as you might need.
Step 2: Tie the leaves to the cord at equal distance from
each other. In between the two leaves, glue or staple the
foam flowers on the cord. You can decorate the flowers
with another small flower or with glitter.
Your toran is ready for hanging.
