This auspicious Hindu festival falls on the 13th night and 14th day of the New Moon. On the day of Mahashivratri, devotees worship Lord Shiva also known as Mahadeva. Mahashivratri is termed as the ‘Great Night of Shiva’ and it is said that Lord Shiva saved the entire universe from a pot of poison that emerged from the ocean during Samudra Manthan. Devotees celebrate this festival with zeal and enthusiasm. According to mythology, it is said that Lord Shiva got married to Goddess Parvati on the day of Mahashivratri and on the same night he performed the Tandava dance.

Step 1: First of all Assemble pieces

For the base: Make a tight coil. 10 black strips needed. Mold onto quilling mold as necessary.

For the lingam: Make 6 tight coils. 4 strips needed for each. Glue 5 coils on top of each other. Mold the sixth coil on the quilling mold as necessary and glue the insides to keep it firm. Once dried, glue to the top of the other 4-strip coils.
For the extra piece: Make one tight coil. 4 strips needed. Mold it slightly into a dome, then shape it into a slight marquise.

Step 2: Glue the pieces together

Glue the pieces as shown. Hold them for 30 seconds each. Let them whole piece dry for a few minutes.

Step 3: Finishing touches.

To make the Tilaka (the marks) cut three equal sized strips of white paper for the vibhuthi (the white lines). Glue them on carefully. Then use yellow marker to apply ‘sandal’. Lastly, use red marker to apply ‘kumkum’. Your Shiva Lingam is finished! Enjoy!
