Ganesh Chaturthi Pooja step by step

Cotton garland for Ganpati |  Cotton mala for Ganpati 

The traditional method of making a cotton garland is shown in the pictures below.  A 21 ball cotton garland is made .  The edges and the gaps between are smeared with turmeric powder mixed in water.
Two pieces of cotton are soaked in turmeric powder mixed in water and stuck to the two edges of the mala.  These help to stick the garland to the photo or idol of Lord Ganesha
