NASA published a picture a few years back showing how vibrant a Diwali night looks in India. Lights cover the entire country. “Diya” has always been the centre of attraction for Diwali. Rangoli complements a decoration with Diya. So, both of them go hand-in-hand at this festival. 

This Diwali, let your house catch the limelight in your locality and invite your close ones to your home. Here are some DIY Diwali decoration ideas to try. Doing it alone would be boring. How about engaging your child as well? Children are always on their feet to work with colours, papers, and glue. Make this Diwali memorable for them. 

DIY Diwali Home Decoration Ideas

Lights & Photos 

Washi Tape Diwali Lights 

Patterns and colours make any celebration more vibrant. Make the dull and average Diwali diyas available in the market attractive. How to do it? Wrap some washi tape around it, and boom! Your diyas are done. Washi tapes are multipurpose. As they look like ribbons, you may get confused. Ask the shopkeeper to find the ideal one. If you are ordering it online, half of the problem is solved! Buy plenty of the tapes and in variety to make your diyas look prettier.

Lights & Photos 

Fairy lights in your preferred colour can change your house’s entire look and feel. Include them in your DIY Diwali decorations. To date, you have only hung them from your roof, and your home has worn a gown of fairy lights. How about a twist this year? Let them tangle with some gorgeous pictures. A string of light with at least five photos looks enchanting! Choose some of the jolliest images of your little one. You will see them giggle at their cutest. 

Paper Cup Garland 

Since now, you have only heard of the garlands of flowers. What is this paper cup garland? Let us guide you here. Paper cup garlands resemble the pattern of lights and photos. You can stick, for example, one glass in the gap of two lights in a string. Use sticking tapes. Instead of decorating your roof or balcony with regular string lights, add some spice! It will create a look beyond imagination. 

Lights inside the Jars

This idea has won the hearts of millions. Whether it is Halloween or Diwali, on any occasion of lights, this decoration setup comes to your timeline whenever you scroll. Buy some jars handy in your nearest store or supermarket. These jars are famous on online shopping platforms as well. This is one of the most beautiful and less time-consuming Diwali DIY decoration ideas. Purchase jars and diyas and place the latter inside the former. That is all! Your job’s done.

Flowers have a unique charm in them that look super welcoming! As the living room is the first place your guests will entertain in your house, give it a welcoming vibe. Decorate the area to give the truest essence of festivity. The flowers are the must-included prop in Diwali decoration ideas DIY.
