The festive season is upon us and this is a very exuberant time of the year.

Strings Of Marigold:
Nothing beats the beauty of real marigolds but buying them in abundance during festivities can burn a hole in your pocket. So here is a way to make your own marigolds provided either you have some time on your hands or you have some helping hands. Here’s a video on how to make your own marigold (The audio quality in the video is not very good but the instructions are clear).

Now, what if you neither have enough time nor have any helping hand? Then the easiest way is to buy faux marigold strings that can be found in local markets and can be seen in abundance during the festivities. Though these are more expensive than real marigolds (4-foot-long string can cost you anything between 70-90 bucks) on the bright side, they are washable and reusable. So you can use them multiple times and can store them when they are not needed. I have seen some really good quality marigold strings online as well.

These marigold strings create the perfect backdrop for festive decor. You can see the festive cheer added by these marigold strings in the below images.
