Diwali is approaching and this joyous celebration requires elaborate Deepavali decorations. As the festival approaches, you’ll see a plethora of decorations for sale, but why not make your own? Traditional Diwali decorations don’t have to be fussy or time-consuming, just effective. In fact, there are plenty of quick and easy DIY Diwali decoration ideas out there, so read on to find out.
Washi Tape Tealight Candles
Tealight candles are a traditional Diwali decoration, but their gray metal holders can make them look a bit dull. Your solution? Washi tapes! Washi tapes are the perfect width for holders, and all you have to do is choose your favorite tapes and wrap them around the tea light. To make it more colorful, mix the ribbons.
Candle inside the jar
This one is a real gem. Preparing this DIY is quick and easy, and the end product is exquisite and elegant. Simply pick out a few mason jars of varying sizes, wrap them in shoelaces, ribbons, or yarn, and place your candle and holder inside. If lace and yarn aren’t your thing, paint the pots and channel your inner artistic self to create intricate designs.
Paper Bag Lights
Paper bag lights are great for adding a warm ambiance to your battery operated candles. Who knew plain brown paper bags could be turned into something so attractive? Simply punch a decorative hole in your paper and place your candle inside to make paper bag luminaries. If you don’t have a decorative punch, using a safety pin or needle to punch paper bags will suffice.
Crepe paper to run
This crepe paper to run will undoubtedly last longer than the fresh flower to run and will also be more attractive than plastic to run. This is a fantastic idea for a Diwali backdrop. It is enough for any occasion. Do it yourself to rungather crepe papers in a range of shades and add gold bells to each end.
Candles decorated with henna
Make your basic candle more vibrant and festive by sprucing it up! For your “canvas”, choose a huge candle at least 5 cm in diameter, then paint your design with a cone of henna. When dry, mix PVC glue with a little water and coat your henna-decorated candle with a brush.
