1. Flour Diya
Aren’t you tired of the same old mud coloured Diwali Diyas? Let’s pave the way for some creativity here. Make your own customized Diwali diyas using the flour. Shape them as per your choice and then glam them up with paint. You can also add glitter to make them more attractive.
2. Bulb Chain
Cover the traditional bulb chain with the paper. You can use the coloured paper as well. Hang them on the main wall of your living room and light up your world.
3. Paper Cup Lamps
This is the easiest DIY to do at home. You can get some coloured and printed paper cups from the market or you can paint the plain white ones. Poke a hole at the base and make the way for each bulb. Mount the paper cup to each bulb of the bulb chain.
4. Plastic Bottle Lamp
Take the old Pepsi bottles and cut the base apart. Cut the shape as you want. Poke a hole at the base for a candle or preferably, bulb to pass. Paint the bottle and Voila!
5. Globule Lamps
You can stick the glass globules on the CD in the circular shape. Put the diya or a bulb in the centre. The light will get refracted from the glass globules, letting out the mesmerising light from the lamp.
6. Egg Carton Lamps
Egg cartons can be arranged and stuck together in a different pattern to create a lamp-like structure. You can paint the egg cartons per your choice to give them a floral look.
