These zigzag palaspas made by weaving coconut tree or palm tree fronds were used as decorating hangings in weddings in India. They were also used on palm Sundays.
Here is how you can make it. Separate the spine but allow it to be attached to the leaf for about 3 inches.
Fold the bottom layer so it is at 90 degrees to the spine.
Wrap the top layer around the folded bottom layer.
As you can see, the spine is between the two layer.
Again fold the bottom layer so it is parallel to the spine.
Wrap the top layer around the bottom layer.
Now fold the bottom layer so it is perpendicular to the spine.
Wrap the top layer around it again.
The spine will again be between the layers.
Continue the steps.
Pretty ain’t it?
