The Indian festive season has been wrapped up for this year but I can keep posting my tutorials forever 😛 We had a quick and unplanned vacation to Kerala for Diwali, so all the posts I made ready were left in the pipeline as I holidayed! This will be the last in the series of Diwali/Indian festive decor ideas before I wrap them up to give way for Christmas crafts 🙂 Presenting to you DIY faux paper marigold flowers tutorial! Marigold flower or Genda phool ( in hindi) or samanthi ( known in south India) is an inseparable part of pooja thaalis and festive decors. The flower has a very strong smell that screams festival and that cannot be replicated 😛 but the flower for sure can be.
