This year, make a promise not to spend unnecessarily on décor items you’ll never use after Diwali. Instead, opt for DIY Diwali decorations that can also fuel a fun family activity.
Don’t know how to make Diwali decoration? Here are a few tutorials. Get your children together and start working on these simple lantern-making ideas.
This easy idea to make Diwali decorations will take you less than 30 minutes. Pick a thick paper in a colour you like. Lay it out on a table and use a ruler and cutter to cut geometrical shapes. Twist the paper into a cone shape around a hanging bulb, glue the edges together and your lamp is ready!
Fairy Light Lamps
It is easy to get coloured glass bottles in the market, that you can fill with fairy lights. You can also use old bottles for this DIY lamp. Simply buy coloured fairy lights and place them in a bottle. Half a string of fairy lights should do the trick. Plug it in, switch it on and your work is done! You can decorate the bottles with gold or silver glitter on the outside too.
Colour Block Lanterns
If you are not a fan of complicated Diwali craft ideas, here is a simpler version. Get card paper in the colours you like, along with some golden foil or golden tape. Stick the golden paper on the top and bottom, turn it into a cylinder and tape it together. You can also let your child create wonderful patterns on them with paint or sketch pens.
