Fan Of The Week: Shashwatee Raut

Posted on
First, let me share some exciting news for all my lovely readers. I know you all love decorating your homes, so here is a contest and a chance to win a gift voucher worth Rs.3000/- for more information click here.
This really cheers me up and keeps me going when I receive some sweet notes from fans and readers of my blog. One such reader ‘Shashwatee Raut‘ sent me her very very creative work to share here. Have a look at her DIY projects and beautiful balcony garden. Over to Shashwatee-
Many items in my garden are clay items which I have painted…Tulsi pot, small dog, swan, stool on which I have kept the fountain and the lotus pot.

Small cranes are made of U-shaped hair pins and leftover M-Seal. The mushrooms are made of plaster of Paris and the body of a Reynolds pen (white body)…I have used eggshells as a mold to give the mushroom shape. The small insect is made of a plastic ball. The bells are made of Chai ke kulhad!!!

This is Shashwatee’s small but lively and beautiful balcony garden.

These five hanging pots are just rabdi handis which I have painted 🙂 
They look so vibrant and enhance the beauty of her small balcony garden.
The small pot in the below image is made of paper clay…and I have placed an artificial plant in it as I can’t water it……and the lotus-like pink flower is made of pistachio shells. 
That lotus looks so real. Pot and butterflies add character to the space.

The nest in the below image is made of coconut coir…I tried to make it as real as possible but……it became like this. 
Now who is going to believe that this nest isn’t real?

I made the pen stand with a rejected glass on which there was a crack…by simply pouring candle drops on it..then painting it with the fabric color.
That’s creativity at its best.

 And the tablas are made of coconut shells.

Two creations are inspired by yours.
This is beautiful and she has done a great job. You can find these two tutorials here and here.

Thanks a lot, Shashwatee for sharing your passion for art and craft here on Design Decor & Disha.
What say friends? Isn’t everything just fabulous? Everything that she made tells a story of her creative imagination. What do you think…..just let her know through your comments 🙂
