Yarn Handmade Rakhi

Raksha Bandhan, also known as Rakhi, is a Hindu festival that falls on the full moon day of the month of Shravana, usually in August. The word raksha means protection, and bandhan means bond.

Raksha Bandhan is a festival that honors the bond between siblings, which is considered one of the most sacred and enduring relationships in Hindu culture. The festival also reflects the values of respect, care, and gratitude that siblings share. Raksha Bandhan is a time to express love, affection, and appreciation for one's siblings, as well as to pray for their happiness and prosperity.

The main ritual of Raksha Bandhan involves the sister tying a sacred thread, called a rakhi, around the wrist of her brother.

While you can buy rakhi from the market, making your own rakhi can be a more meaningful and creative way to express your feelings. It can also be a fun and easy activity to do with your kids. In this blog post, we are sharing an easy handmade rakhi craft for kids using simple materials that you can find at home or in a craft store.


1. Hold the yarn between your fingers and wrap on your finger lightly 10 to 15 rounds.

2. Then take it out from your fingers and tie it from the centre.

3. Cut the yarn loops from both sides and make it flat from holding it from centre and press it. Cut extra yarn to make a nice and even circle.

4. Decorate the pom-pom as you like. We used a big button in the centre and a small sticky bead on top of the button.

5. Make single or multi-color braided string and tie both ends. Stick the flat yarn pom pom top on it.

And your homemade rakhi is ready to tie.

Making handmade rakhi craft for kids is a fun and easy way to celebrate Raksha Bandhan. It can also be a great way to express your love and creativity. You can make rakhi with any materials you have at home or in a craft store. You can also customize them according to your preferences and style.

We hope you enjoy making and wearing your handmade rakhi. Happy Raksha Bandhan!
