1. Take 2-3 or more strings of different color threads.

5. Stick the small circle on the big circle in centre. I could have used one circle only but using two circles made a thick  and hard  base.

 

6. Now give outline with blue glitter glue around small circle filling up the complete space.

 

7.  Line up your threads straight and close and the paste the decorated circle on it using the glue in the centre.Rakhi embellishment
