Our Top 7 Diwali Lights Decoration Ideas:
1. Diwali Diya
Instead of ushering in Diwali with readymade diyas, you can create some of your own. Use flour dough, seashells, eggshells and even orange peels to create diyas that have a touch of the unusual. Just add molten wax, fix a wick and your diya is ready.
Readymade clay diyas too can be made to sparkle with a little glitter and paint. Choose colours that complement your décor and your home will look as unique as you would like it to be.
2. Floral Diya
To bring in a contemporary look, you can envelop your diyas with flowers or float them in a large bowl of water, surrounded by flowers and petals. Add a few drops of colour or fragrance to the bowl and fill the room with a soothing aroma. Just like you would get if you spray AmbiPur Air Effects Spring and Renewal.
3. Diwali Lanterns
You can create lanterns from paper, cardboard boxes or even packing material. Cut out interesting shapes, colour it, add glitter or sequins and hang it in a prominent spot to display your creativity.
4. String of lights
If you have children or pets at home, too many diyas could get a little risky. Go in for a string of lights instead. There is so much that you can do with it. Choose one with small lamps or large bulbs. Place the string in glass jars, wrap it around your furniture or window grills, decorate mirrors or even create lettering with it. Go crazy and decorate the way you want to.
5. Decorative Candles
Candles are nice, but decorative ones are nicer. Use glitter, dried flower petals, leaves, twigs or cinnamon sticks to create a candle with your personal touch.
