Diwali 2021: Here Are 6 Easy And Creative DIY Home Decor Ideas To Try This Holiday Season
One of the most auspicious Hindu festivals, Diwali, is a festival of lights which is celebrated on the Amavasya (new moon) day of Krishna Paksha in the month of Kartik. This year, Diwali will be celebrated on November 4, 2021.
With Diwali just around the corner, people are bracing for the preparations to celebrate Lord Ram’s return.
People decorate their homes with bright lights, colorful rangolis, candles, lanterns and colorful earthen lamps. On this day, people also exchange wonderful gifts with their loved ones.
To start with home decorations, here are some easy and creative DIY decorating ideas that will not only save you time, but also give your home a classic touch.
Here are 6 easy and interesting DIY ideas for the home
– Hanging tealight candle / Washi tape Diwali tealight candles
Lights and candles are a must have for Diwali decorations as they give a vibrant ambiance to your home. However, tea lights can look a bit flat with their original gray metal holders. So, go to the washi tapes!
Make sure that the width of the washi tapes matches the media perfectly. All you have to do is pick the ribbons you want and wrap them around the tea light. You can go for something quirky or even give it a floral touch. Remember to use a variety of ribbons to make them more colorful.
And that’s all! Once done, you can use this beautiful decor in a rangoli or even as pendant lights.
– Crepe paper / toran paper cup garland for backdrop
Do not miss a beautiful Diwali decoration for the backdrop of your private bedroom or even the living room.
Take a bunch of paper cups and wrap them one by one with various decorative papers according to your taste. Once done, cut the bottom of the cups with a knife.
Now through these holes take out the bulbs for your Diwali decoration lights.
Likewise, you can make your own crepe paper toran which will definitely outlast the flower toran. You can also add golden bells at each end to add that extra sparkle and make it more festive.
– Recycle pickle jars
What could be better than decorating your home on Diwali with products lying around? Recycle and see how the smallest things around the house can give you a party vibe.
For this DIY, you just need some unused pickle jars that will replace the beautiful vases.
Use these pickle jars with marigold flowers and see the magic. You can even light mitti diyas around your decoration and put them on show at the entrance of your house.
– Wire lantern
Blow a balloon and prepare a mixture of glue and water. Carefully spread the glue paste onto the balloon. Then wrap the balloon with colored threads. During this whole process, you have to make sure that the balloon does not burst.
When dry, burst the balloon to obtain a perfectly formed ball of yarn. You can then put a group of lights inside this ball of yarn and hang it as a piece of decoration.
– Experiment with candles (floating candles / decorated with henna / candle inside a jar)
The water candle decoration on Diwali looks elegant and graceful. For this you need to get a glass bowl and fill it with water. Add rose petals to the water and place floating candles on them.
For another DIY trick with candles, you need to choose a few mason jars of different sizes and wrap them in laces, ribbons, or even colorful threads. Once done, place your candle inside the jar and see the magic.
Likewise, you can decorate your plain candles to make them look more lively and festive. Choose a larger size candle so that it is easy to draw your design with a henna cone. Once dry, use a paintbrush to coat your candle design with golden glitter using a mixture of glue and water.
– Lights in paper bag
Paper bag light fixtures are just as fascinating and beautiful as their names. They not only add sparkle to your Diwali decoration, but also give you a warm and peaceful ambiance.
To create them, choose brown paper bags and simply punch the paper with a decorative hole punch. Then put your candle inside. Place them by your pool or even on the balcony.
