Who is Durga?
For those, who are hearing this Name for the First time, Durga is one of the Major Deities of Hinduism. According to Hindus, she is the protective mother of the universe. Durga Pooja/ Navarathri is a 10 Day Festival of India where nine forms of Durga is Worshipped.
Fall Leaf Durga Craft
We made this last-minute craft during the Final day of Navrathri; it is so simple as you see. I have shared a few pictures and some tips and tricks to make this fall leaf project.
- Printable Template
- Paper Glue Stick (Optional)
- Ornaments, beads, Pearls (Optional)
Collect the leaves
Collecting leaves is an enjoyable task; kids love to go outdoors and pick twigs, leaves and acorns. For this craft, We need around 15 leaves the size of your child’s palm. The smaller, the better. Although we did with Red leaves, Yellow leaves would have been much more perfect for making this crown. So I suggest Picking Yellow or even Orange.
Print the template:
Download the free template at the end of the post. Print it on A4 or Us letter size by choosing the “fit” option while printing.
Cut and Arrange the leaves:
First, Cutaway the petioles and start arranging the leaves from the top of the crown. If the leaves you have are big, cut them into parts (as we did) and place them.
Did we use Glue to stick them? No, not on this Project. But Usually, we use a generous amount of Paper glue to add the leaves; check out our Fall leaf squirrel, which we made on cardboard using Glue.
You can add beads and Pearls to the crown, necklace and earrings. My daughter did this final look with Random jewels at home, and I think it turned out adorable. What’s your thought? Let me know in the comments section.
You can use my template to do this Durga craft with any other material you find at home, like pulses, orange peels, carrot peels, etc. Just a few ideas, Be creative and have fun! Do share your Project with me on Instagram; I would love to see your work.
A gentle reminder; The printable is only for personal use; please not share it with others. Instead, please direct them to my website.
