This is my mother’s recipe. The good thing about it is that it let’s you enjoy chilly pickle if you are the kind of person who can not eat spicy food. Here is the step-by-step process to make it. The … Continue reading
It’s been a year since I started working on Menstrupedia and every part of my brain is occupied with it’s thoughts. I am obsessed with Menstrupedia’s work and enjoy it so much that I hardly feel like doing some thing else. Few months back amidst of no where, I suddenly felt like making a Lamp and came up with this. It took me an hour to make it. I could not think of a suitable name so I asked my Instagram friends to suggest a suitable name. Fiery Globe was suggested by Prasoon Gupta, I liked it very much and decided to call it the same 🙂
I am able to finally post it here along with the tutorial. This lamp is made out of the things that were available at my home. You can also just use the bamboo globe wrapped with lights and hand them to lit up a cozy corner.
Here’s the step-by-step tutorial:
It’s been ages since I posted here. I made this lamp for the Valentine’s day and just love the way it fills my home with warmth and romance.
1. Cut a card board in the shape of a heart
2. Pierce Christmas/LED lights through it
3. Make lots of paper roses and stick on the heart
4. This is how you make paper roses
We made sky lanterns to celebrate “Diwali”, a festival of lights in India. You can find the step-by-step tutorial here:
Step 1: Make Paper Balloon
The paper balloon is made using rice papers,butter paper, kite paper or tracing paper. Butter paper works best as it has good tensile strength which prevents the paper from tearing and is easy to handle.
While sticking the sides of the butter paper make sure you stick it properly so that the hot air could not escape from it.
Step 2: Making the rim of the balloon
The open end of the balloon is stuck with a bamboo ring to attache the fuel.
Step 3: Making the Fuel
For making the fuel of Sky lantern, you need wax and napkin papers.
Step 4: Attaching the fuel
The wire used must not be very thick otherwise it may increase the weight of the sky lantern, also it should not be very thin otherwise it would melt with the heat.
Make lots of them and launch them together, sky lanterns when launched looks visually stunning. Its a very eco-friendly and beautiful way of celebrating the festival of lights.

Retain the Spring and have a bright Summer!!
This is how I tried to retain the spring this summer !!
I found an old tyre tube in my backyard and converted it into a flowery lamp using series lights and paper roses.
These night blossoms make the living area very pleasant and relaxing. One of the many reasons why we always look forward to go home after work.
We were trying to make some decorative with series lights & paper cups and came up with this.
Paper cups used for coffee, tea or water can be very easily recycled to make an eco-friendly exotic lamp.
I am just loving the ambiance light this lamp creates in our drawing room.
Every point where one layer of the cup flower comes in contact with the other layer is glued.
It takes some time for layers to get stuck with each other, so its better to finish sticking first 2 layers and then adding the 3rd one.
The red dots shown here are the glued points.
