DIY box with a cardboard base and empty thread spools

As many of you are crafters, you will be having a lot of empty thread spools in your home. I made my kids to try to make a box with those empty threads and a cardboard base.

Below is the video of them making a box with empty thread spools and cardboard box.

To make it you require a card board base (I used a puzzle cardboard as they are not using it as they have grown up and empty thread spools. Fevicol to fix them on the base. You can also use a thick sheet of cardboard boxes.

Apply fevicol all over the sides and put empty thread spools on the fevicol. Your box will be ready soon. Allow it to dry for atleast 3 hours for better sticking.

Later you can paste a gliiter foam sheet or normal foam sheet or even colour or design paper for better looks. And can decorate the sidewalls as you wish.

Try it by your kids so that they will learn to make things out of waste. Comment your outcome below and can send pictures to pallavi.rags@gmail.com so that you can see your crafts in the website below in this post.

How to make pendant with framed kundans

Let us see how to make a pendant with kundan stones (framed Kundans) in this post. Or buy this pendant @ Rs 50 if you don’t have time to make it.

Materials required to make a kundan pendant:

  • Square framed kundans – 8mm
  • Thilak shape kundans – 8mm
  • Canvas Sheet
  • Gold colour/gold nail polish
  • Drop shape pearl hanging
  • Fevicryl
  • Cutter
  • Plier
  • Eye Pins

Material required for kundan pendant

Step 1.

Take a canvas sheet and apply gold paint/nail polish on the canvas sheet using a paint brush or an ear bud. Allow it to dry.

Step 2.

Put square shape kundans in a row on the dried gold colour canvas sheet.

Next add another row of square kundans in between the top 2 kundans. It comes as 6 kundans in top row, 5 kundans in next row and finally to single kundan. Start from the top and add thilak shape kundans as shown in the picture below, only the centre thilak shape kundan points top wards.

Cut the canvas sheet from the remaining sheet as per the pendant shape. I used diy cutter to cut in between kundans.

Allow them to dry or they will fell off the canvas sheet. Glue them well.

After it dries, turn it to other side and take a pearl hanging and attach it to an eye pin and keep at the downside of the pendant. Put two eyepins on the top at two gaps between kundans . Apply glue on the back side and put another canvas sheet to cover the eye pins and to secure them well. You can add two canvas sheets for strength and hardness of the pendant.

After that you can apply gold paint on the back side as well for neat finish.

Finally attach the well dried pendant to any chain and is ready to wear. I attached a ready made chain to the pendant and it looks like this.

Know how to check your bangle size

Check out how to measure your Bangle Size
The conventional and popular Sizes for Bangles are 2, 2.2, 2.4, 2.6, 2.8 etc….
To find out your bangle size,
1. Measure your existing bangle / Measure Your Hand
a. To measure your existing bangle, take a ruler and place it along the centre of your bangle and measure the inner diameter of your bangle, as shown in the picture above.
Measure a bangle you already have and compare with below-stated measurements to get your correct Bangle Size.
b. To measure your hand, use a flexible tape measure or a piece of string/thread or ruler. Make your hand as small as possible, as if you were putting on Bangles, bringing your thumb and little finger together. Measure the around your hand (circumference) at the widest point. And compare your measurement with below-stated measurements to get your correct Bangle Size.

2. Connection between Measurements and Conventional/Popular Size :
To interpret the measurement in conventional terms, please note that an inch is divided into 16 parts and a bangle size is stated as a percentage of those 16 parts.Therefore, a conventional/popular bangle size of 2.4 means 2 inches + (4/16=.25) inch.
Similarly, reading of 2.5 inches on the scale would mean that your bangle size is 2.8 i.e. 8/16. Similarly, 2.25 inches would mean that your bangle size is 2.4 and so forth.
