Festivals stir up all sorts of impulses and instincts..the urge to spend time with friends and family, to cook up the traditional and some not so traditional sweets and munchies, to dress up in sparkling new acquisitions and to spread a bit of glitter, shimmer and festivity around the home. Candles, pottery diyas, elegant votives, idols, rangolis, torans, fresh flowers, string lights..there are umpteen options to deck the house in festive splendor. However, the most precious decorations are the ones that are handmade amidst love, laughter and togetherness, and have heart-warming memories tucked in between the layers of paint and glue.
We spent an afternoon at the Bosch DIY Store, at their Diwali-themed Workshop and the time just flew by while we painted, cut, glued and taped. The good folks at the store had a lovely spread of diyas, pots, trays and CDs for us to furbish and plenty of colourful paints, baubles, embellishments, strings and glitzy braids to bedeck our creations. The Bosch hot glue gun was the prime attraction at the table and it worked like a charm, sticking anything and everything that we wanted.
Do check out the workshop at Adugodi, Bengaluru – it is a great way to create some festive memories with the family. There’s plenty to keep crafty kids busy while you check out some of the other fascinating DIY tools that Bosch offers. Here are the details –
