With the festive season around the corner, this is the perfect time to give your house a festive upgrade to give it a celebratory glow. It’s time to decorate your homes with cheerful accents.
Let's discuss some DIY steps on how to turn your house into a beautiful, happy wonderland to embrace the festival mood:
A simple way to spruce up your walls is to create hanging torans from paper. Begin by printing out a pattern such as a peacock, bird, flowers, stars, etc, on paper and use that as a stencil to cut more from coloured paper. You can use a mount board or chart paper as well.
Tie these cuttings together with a string via a hole punched in each of them. If you want you can stick small mirrors on them for more effect. You can also make the patterns with a paper quilling method. It is more time-consuming but the effect is worth the effort.
Skip traditional rangolis this year and mix up flower decorations with rangolis. You can use different coloured flowers such as marigolds, roses and jasmine. You can also put a brass vessel in the centre of the rangoli and fill it up with water and flower petals with a tea light in the centre.
Decorate your house during this Diwali using creative ideas such as reusing fabrics to make curtains, pillow covers and even quilts or simply throws. Use old colourful sarees and make cushion covers out of them. One more DIY idea that you can do is to use fabrics as picture frames.
Right from your entrance door to the kitchen and even window sills, ornaments such as kundan diyas, rangolis, and kundan mats, coasters can be used to create decor for Diwali. This is a very easy and fast trick to jazz up your home.
A combination of these decor ideas will surely make your home look not only beautiful but also radiate positive vibes and happiness. Decorating your home for Diwali can be a fun-filled family activity!
