Handmade Rakhi For Raksha Bandhan

Raksha Bandhan, also abbreviated to Rakhi, is the Indian festival that celebrates the special relationship between a brother and sister. On this day, sisters tie a band on the wrist of their brothers as a mark of respect for the love and protection they give them while brothers give their sisters gifts as a mark of the love and affection they receive from them.

This festival is celebrated not just between siblings related by blood but also cousins and two unrelated persons that wish to treat each other as brothers - sisters. When the persons are together, they usually get-together in the morning when the sister physically ties the rakhi on the brother's wrist and applies vermilion on the brother's forehead. The brother gives his sister a present, and then both feed each other some yummy sweets. When they are remote, sisters send Rakhis and vermilion via mail while brothers buy their sisters a gift of their choice. It's a nice festival that re-inforces the bond between a brother and sister every year.

To celebrate Raksha Bandhan this year, we wanted to share some really clever and beautiful rakhi ideas by Malini who is an art teacher based out of San Francisco Bay Area. What's cool is that you make these rakhis with things you already have at home.
