You don’t need any expensive furniture or fixings – these cushions, drapes and curtains made out of old saris can instantly lift up an otherwise boring room.

This is one of my personal favorite. Chiffon Saris have a wonderful fall and they are great to make some trendy scarves. A single sari can be used to make several scarves. These can be given as gift to your friends or perhaps as some humble gifts for the girls in the orphanages.
As Wall Art:
Saris make amazing wall art. Take the most attractive part of the sari and frame it – tada, you have a beautiful wall art. It appears like it’s worth a million dollars but it’s quite easy on the pocket.
Saris used in the following methods are a great way to personalize your bed. A little bit of creativity in draping is suffice to bring in the warmth to the bedroom. And, what’s more is that it doesn’t require any sewing.
