Crossandra flower Kanakambaram Poo Tamil

How to make thick fresh flower garlands 
The first picture shows thick garlands of various flowers, kakada ( called kattu malli in Tamil )
kanambaram and jasmine ( called malli in Tamil ) 

This type of decoration can be used for bridal hair decoration for wedding, baby showers , seemantham or valaikappu

The bright orange coloured flowers are beautiful.  I purchase either at the local flower vendor or go to the flower market in Koyambedu



Tie flowers on both sides of a string some where near the centre

Turn after tying

Tie two or three flowers with stalks placed on the thread on the left side of the image


The thread on the right side goes around the stalks and the other part of the thread

The next set of floers are placed to the right of the previous set of the flowers such that the stalks are on the thread


Repeat the procedure,  the thread on the right side goes around the thread on the left side tying the stalks of the flowers


A close up view of the two flowers being placed on the thread

After tying , cut the excess thread and tie to securely hold the flowers


Beautiful orange garland !
