Thoroughly de-starch the cotton fabric by boiling it for a couple of minutes in water. After de-starching the cloth, hang it out to dry and Iron it well to remove all the creases.
Do a Fan-folding (like the way pleats are made for a saree) for the cloth and iron it along the folds.
Tie knots along the length of the fabric to make 7 divisions. Refer to the image.
Dip the entire cloth in water to make it wet. Make sure that the cloth absorbs sufficient water. Squeeze out excess Water and lay the cloth flat onto a newspaper. Start painting from one end of the cloth using various colors. As soon as you are done with this step, open out the fabric and let it out to dry.
Neatly cover the plastic bowl with the fabric by using Fevicol. Allow this to dry.
Work around the bowl by using satin ribbon. Stick the ribbon using Fevicol.
Embellish the bowl with elements of your choice. I have used round mirrors and I have stuck these using Fevicryl 3D outliner cones.
Smear Fevicryl 3D glitters onto the surface of the fabric with the help of a brush. Allow this to dry.
Lay out some color in these bowls for your holi party.
