4. CD Diya


Take your old CD's out this diwali and decorate it with embellishments. Now place a LED tea light or a tea light in the centre and lit it up.


Materials required
  • CD's
  • Embellishments (Glitters, beads, sequins or colored gems)
  • Tea light holder
  • Tea light / Diya
  • Craft Glue 
We all have a mountain of old CD's sitting at home. The idea is to recycle those CD's and create a beautiful candle holder out of them. Get the your favorite embellishments from any local market and add sparkles on your Diwali decor. Start by sticking a tea light holder in the centre of the CD and then apply the glue on the flat surface of the glass bead and press it firmly against the CD and decorate it in whatever way you like. Now place a tea light into the tea light holder and lit it up. It step up the sparkle game.


5. Diwali Flags and Banners

Festive banners are very easy to make. Cut them in whatever shape you like. Either write it with a marker or make the letters and stick them on the flags. Punch them in the corners of the flags and hang them with the help of a twine.

Materials required
  • Decorative glitter paper in two different shades
  • Punching Machine
  • Scissor
  • Twine
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Craft Glue
Take a decorative glitter paper and measure out a rectangle (6 inches wide and 8 inches long) and cut it out. Now using a ruler and pencil (find the middle mark) go up all the way to find the tip of the triangle and draw the line from that mark to corner of each sides. Cut the triangle. Repeat the step until you collect the required number of flags. Now look around for any other glitter paper and make letters with them. Apply glue and stick the letters on the flags. Once you're done, punch the holes at the two corners of these flags. String them, so the twine goes front to back into the right hand hole and back to the front on the left. Keep doing that that until you are done with whole of the banner. You can hang it anywhere on your wall.
