Rakhi completely snuck up on me this year (actually, the entire month of August snuck up on me!) It's tomorrow, and I'm scrambling to get everything ready.
So... a few minutes ago I made up this braided rakhi from bakers twine and embroidery floss. This is one of the easiest ways to make a rakhi (or a bracelet) all though your fingers will get tired if you have to make a ton (like I do!)
First... a heavy glass full of water is perfect for holding down your strands without having to remember where you put your scotch tape.
... and then combed through the ends with a pin to separate the strands.
While you are here, check out my even quicker, no braiding rakhi tutorial and my super comfy knit rakhi tutorial.
And in case I don't see you tomorrow, have a wonderful Rakhi!!!!
