2. Tape two sticks together (you can use just one but two will be sturdier). Tape the sticks onto the strip of panja. now wrap the strip around completely and tape it all around (2-3 rounds of tape)

3. Take the black felt and cut strips on top from both sides. Keep approx 2.5 inches uncut in the middle. Put alam down in the middle and tie the strips around. Fold down both the top corners of felt like a triangle and staple to secure it.
