Rakhi Making For Raksha Bandhan – Made With Love!

Hey Everyone,

It’s another weekend! I hope you all are doing great. Today, I thought of sharing easy rakhi making ideas with all of you. Wondering what is rakhi?! On the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, a sister ties rakhi on her brother’s wrist. This festival is celebrated in India. Raksha Bandhan is a festival where the siblings celebrate the bond of affection and they pray for each other’s good health and wealth. Rakhi is a sacred thread , a promise of doing Raksha (protecting).
So, lets get into the preparations of how to make rakhis. The ideas which I am talking about are very easy and less time consuming. I am sure, you guys would love making this and tying an unique Rakhi on your brother’s wrist.
