The much-awaited festival of lights, Diwali is just around the corner.
That means it's high time you start implementing your home decor plans.
However, one thing that Diwali preparation is incomplete without is the grace of illuminating diyas and candles.
So, if you don't mind devoting some time to your Diwali home decor, here are six do-it-yourself diya decoration ideas you should try.
Paint your diyas; Hang them
Paint: Well, the least you can (and should) do with your diyas is to paint them. Buy plain diyas from the market, your favorite colors, and let your creative juices flow.
Hang: Another way to add a new flavor to your Diwali decor is to hang your diyas this time. Take old tin cans, paint them, and hang them along with your diyas.
Add diyas to your rangoli; Use shells to make diyas
Rangoli: Rangolis add the much-needed grace and warmth to your Diwali decor. To give a more brightening look to your rangolis, decorate them with diyas, and witness the magic.
Shells: Head to the beach and collect some shells on your way back. And guess what? You now have a new, unique set of diyas. They will make a classy add-on to your Diwali decor.
Use bangles to create your diyas; Use coconut shells
Use bangles: Got some old bangles at home? Put them to good use by assembling them, pasting them together and putting your diyas in them.
Use coconut shells: You can also collect a couple of coconut shells and use them as your makeshift diyas. You may also consider painting them for a fresh look.
You can also apply these ideas to candles pretty effectively.
