      yea i sooooo do not like the indian haars it doesnt have tht paki look or touch to it...its easy to make urself thankfully we have a huge paki community here in NJ and have women who make them at home either u can provide them with flowers or they can get thier own but im more for providing them with my own flowers...also if anyone here lives in the NJ/ NY area there are really nice haars sold in jackson heights NY and are reaaaalllllyyy nice ones they dont have a website otherwise i would have posted it here but if you go there u can find them everywhere they are really common there.

      my friend's cousin made hers and they were lovely, i saw her make some for another wedding and it looked as if she used clear fishing twine. Also she used fake pearl beads from a craft store to sew on, it was lovely:





      also my best friend did hers and they were just plainly done on a string by some white lady who charged an arm and a leg. totally not worth it! So i say experiment with cheaper flowers, get used to it, make sure to keep the flowers fresh and in the fridge as soon as it's completed so they don't wilt and die before the wedding and all should be well. after all who really looks at the garlands?

      Hi

      I remember a GS member posted pcitures of beautiful garlands she'd made, and some instructions. I can't remember who it was, and can't seem to find the thread though I have tried searching.

      Would someone be kind enough to point me in the right direction?

      Thanks.

      It was Chanda_kh I think who gave detailed help on purchasing and making garlands. Maybe you could get in touch with her

      I have made some using carnations and roses.

      I would cut the flower right where the stem starts.

      Using a needle and thread (thicker than actual thread) I would just thread all the flowers together. I would pierce the part that is right below the petals (i don't know the name for this? lol) ... and just keep stringing along flowers until its long enough for what you want.

      I added pearls to the flower as well. Go to a store like Michaels and you can find needles that have pearls at the end of them. Just stick the needles into the flower head. It comes out really pretty.

      Carnations work really well. They last quite long so you don't have to worry about doing everything the morning of the mehndi. I made some for a friends mehndi and her clothes had accents of emerald green and we dyed some of the flowers....just buy white one spilt half and inch of the stem and put them in food colour. We just put a few of those and it turned out really nice.

      ^ I would go to a flower shop and just buy the flower you like! Practice making one kajra and see how long it lasts. You will have a better idea what to do then.

      Ramsha is right that one of the major benefits of carnations is that they last for a really long time... you can easily make these before the actually mehndi day and not worry about them looking wilted/and or dead.

      Go to a florist.. they prob know better than the rest of us. Ask them you are looking to buy little white flowers similar to jasmine and you want something that lasts longer and doesn't die instantly if they are not in water.

      Good luck!

      Oh I LOVE doing this and have gotten pretty good! I find carnations and miniature roses to be the best.

      I stick the needle through the side of the sepal, rather than going through the center of the flower. To make the haar/gajra look extra thick and full, instead of just stringing one flower at a time, what I do is make it so that the flowers close to each other face in different directions, the petals facing outward, so very little of the green shows. It works really well. Avoid using heavy flowers like large roses.

      How do you store the gajras? Do they stay fresh for a day atleast if you make them ahead of time?
      Blessed, happy, and content. Alhumdulillah.
