Things You'll Need to Make an Infant Krishna Costume

Before you outfit your baby in a Krishna costume, remember the following. These are the components needed to assemble a Krishna costume.

1. Dhoti

The traditional male attire of India is the dhoti. In most rural areas of India, males frequently wear it, despite the fact that they rarely do so in metropolitan settings. It is an essential component of the Krishna Dress. Your youngster will be more comfortable with a cotton or silk dhoti in your chosen colour, especially if you are organising a picture shoot.

What You'll Need:


A Mundu or a dupatta/saree made of silk or cotton.


Fold the length of a mundu or a dupatta. If you believe the extra layer may bother your child, you can also opt to cut the fabric lengthwise.

Keep about 1/4 of the cloth on one side and the remaining, or the longest length, on the other as you would when tying a sarong around the child's waist.


Place the knot's centre.

Take the bottom front corner of the short end of the cloth and wrap one leg between the legs before grabbing the end from underneath the fabric from behind.


Gently tug it to ensure good fit, then tuck it in the middle of the cover.

2. Crown

The "mukut," or crown, is another crucial component of Krishna's appearance. Crowns can be found in the market with ease. Don't skimp on the quality because a poor-quality crown could injure your baby's sensitive skin. You could even make one at home if you're crafty.

What You'll Need:

A chart paper in yellow, Glue, Scissors, Drawing pens, Embellishments, Measurement or Thread Tape, Pencil


Cut a strip of yellow chart paper that is 2 inches wide.

Take your child's head's circumference into consideration.

The strip was cut to that length.

Now, trace the top of the crown with a pencil. Give it the shape that you want.

Following the outline, cut.

Glue the strip's ends together.

Put your favorite colors and accessories on the crown.

3. Peacock Feather

A peacock feather is a symbol of Lord Krishna, making it an essential piece of costume jeweler for children. The second significant component of the Krishna costume is the flute, which is thought to have been used by Krishna to dance with the peacocks once while playing one of his wonderful melodies.

What You'll Need:

Iridescent blue, light blue, a vivid shade of green, copper, and turquoise paint for the chart paper, Scissors, Pencil and Paintbrush


On the chart paper, doodle a feather outline.
You may even print the page out.
If you paint the feather imperfectly, that's okay.
To enable you to glue it to the crown or tuck it in a ponytail, cut following the outline, leaving the bottom thick.
Your peacock feather is now ready, so there you go.

4. Flute

The name "Murlidhar" for Lord Krishna means "the one who wears a Murli," or flute. Krishna is said to have performed a number of beautiful tunes on his flute and mesmerized everyone in the area.


Make a paper flute for your child if you are unable to get one.

What You'll Need:

Newspaper, Glue, Scissors, Embellishments made of paint, such as lace, tassels, etc.


Grab a newspaper and roll it until the appropriate thickness is achieved.

Properly adhere the paper's loose ends. Dry it out.

The roll should then have one end trimmed into a blunt tip or a conical form. Any protruding edges should be glued before drying.

Add some ribbons, tassels, golden paper, and other embellishments to the flute.

5. Butter Pot 

Lord Krishna adored butter, or "maakhan." Butter is another typical tribute to Lord Krishna because there are several accounts of him robbing the Gopikas' homes in Vraj of their milk, butter, and curd.

You have the option of making one out of paper or decorating a clay pot that you already own and filling it with cotton to hold the butter.

What You'll Need:


gigantic balloon, plenty of paper (preferably newspaper), Glue, Water, one set of scissors, a wooden or plastic bracelet, a threaded string.


Blow the balloon till it reaches a medium size of inflation.

Once you've reached the balloon's bottom, tie the opening and push it all the way inside.

Hold the pushed end at the elbow with another hand.

Instead of the customary oblong shape, you should receive a pot-like shape. In a bowl, combine some water and glue.

The newspaper should be torn into little pieces. Stick each piece to the balloon after dipping it. Make sure that every piece touches the pieces around it. This way, completely cover the balloon, leaving a circle at the top centre.
This will serve as the pot's mouth.
Once you have a beautiful, thick layer of paper covering the balloon, keep pasting the newspaper pieces on there. Let it air dry.
Take a different newspaper sheet and dunk it in the water and glue mixture. Till the rim has the desired thickness, cover the entire bangle. Set it aside with the pot to dry. after the jar

6. Jewelry

Jewelry is a key component of the Krishna costume. The Lord Krishna's clothing will be lacking in jewelry. Krishna typically wears necklaces, bracelets, anklets, and other valuable and semi-precious jeweler.

What You'll Need:

Colored Gold Paper, delicate yarn or a thick, soft thread, a few beads (optional; do not use beads for infants and toddlers), Glue, Scissors

Cut two pieces of soft yarn or one string each for the anklets, bracelets, and necklace.
Before cutting them, measure them.
To tie the decorations, make sure you have enough.
Place the triangles and circles on the strings in the desired arrangement and let them dry.
When they're prepared, cinch the strings.
