1. DIY Independence Day Foam Flag
If you are in a mood to decorate your walls with a beautiful foam flag, check out this video that depicts how to create one just by using white and blue clay, foam sheets, glue and a thread. Take out a template design of a flag and draw and cut out the orange and green colored foam sheets as per the template design. Make a flat disc of the white clay by pressing it with your palms to make the base of the ashoka chakra and use the blue colored clay to make the spokes of the chakra. Border the white disk with a thin coil of the blue clay and arrange the spokes to complete the chakra. Now, arrange the foam sheets as per template design and place the ashoka chakra in the centre using a glue. Pierce a hole on the top part of the orange foam and tie a string for it to be dangled and your independence day foam flag dangler is ready.
2. Tricolor Badge – Indian Independence Day Craft Ideas
The most decent and the most basic craft to celebrate independence day is the tricolor badge. It can be used by people from all ages of life, be it a child or an adult in all kinds of celebrations whether happening at the school, institutional, corporate or national level. Rather than buying these badges from markets at a high cost, you can make them easily in a short span of time with basic materials like tricolored paper strips, glue, white circles and other stationary materials.
Paste the three strips one over another, leaving a little width of the previous strip in equal measures, making a tricolor band. Now, make a mark at a distance of 1 cms and fold the strips inwards and outwards just like we do while making a paper fan. Stick both the ends of the band and push it down from upwards creating a circle. Glue all the ends together in the middle of the circle thus formed and paste small white colored circles with the ashoka chakra drawn on both the sides. Attach a safety pin on the backside and three ribbons on the bottom completing the badge. Follow this video:
