Let’s start.

1. Take strands of different color threads. I have used  green and orange.colorful threads

 

2. Tie a knot at one end leaving some space and start braiding until you reach almost at the centre and not exactly the centre of the thread, stop just a little before the centre.

 

3. Tie a knot where you stopped.

 

4.Take a bead of your color choice and size and put it to the thread from the other end next to the knot you tied. I used big beads and of orange color.Rakhi

 

 

5. Now take any embellishment of choice and stick  on the thread in the centre which would be exactly next to your bead. I used a ‘Koyari’ shaped embellishment.rakhi

 

 

6. Again put another bead to the thread next to your embellishment and tie a knot. These knots will stop the beads from moving from their places.rakhi

 

 

7. Now continuing braiding all the way  leaving  a little space towards the end and tie a knot.Rakhi handmade
