Five New Gota Decor DIYs That Will Make Your 2017 Mehendi A Riot!

BY Latha Sunadh | 25 Jan, 2017

Some of the simplest design ideas spring from unassuming places and interesting things. And if there's one thing that's really been consistent at Mehendis in particular, it's gota decor. Every year, it gets an update, an upgrade and it's totally cheap and easy to work with. So while we were languidly trawling one of our favourite instagrams, we found 3 cool DIYs every girl can make with gota patti. Take a look! *Easy peasy stuff, honestly!

Gota hangings and a sweet gota wrap

We saw this cutie on Abhinav Bhagat's insta and we couldn't help but notice how simple decor can be if you incorporate gota. First up are the hanging garlands - buy a gota flower and add a mogra garland to it - simple! Gota flowers come at Rs 40 each and they're so so sweet. The second one which is part of the picture is the way in which gota patti thread is used to wrap a boat (in this case, but you can use it on anything!) Cost: Gota flowers (big) Rs 40 each ( 8 x 40 = 240); Mogra garlands: 40 bucks each ( 8 x 40 = 240).
