    Hi Sokoni, Welcome to Indus dear !!!
    No, they are not stuck to the floor directly.
    I have done them on transparency sheets or Over Head Projector (OHP) sheet and then stuck the kundan stones on them according to the pattern I wanted !!

    Rukmani, Welcome to Indus dear !!!
    You can get these in Michaels or A.C. Moore or any craft shop.
    Look out for Rhinestones. These are generally without holes ie, you need glue to stick these. You get round and heart shaped ones there.
    The transparency sheets or OHP sheets should be available in all stationery shops.
    If you are good in drawing, draw your pattern and fix these stones.
    Have a look at my 7 day kolam in the same forum. You can get ideas from those as well !!

    Thanks Kanaka, my dear friend.
    Yes, my first attempt was during Navarathri last year.

    hi Sudha
    which glue did you used to stick kundans on OHP sheet. I tried Fevicol but didn't work out well. Please need your suggestion
