DIY: Homemade Decorative Diyas | Hand painted Diyas Design Ideas
Diwali celebration and diyas/oil lamp goes hand in hand. Though filling the diyas with oil and lighting the lamp might be tedious job but after lighting all the diyas or oil lamp all around the home it’s looks so beautiful and that’s makes me so happy. We can do the same with candles but the authentic feel diyas gives candles can never do that, I personally think so, do you agree?
And if the diyas is painted and/or decorated by ourselves then it’s gets better. Each year we do this and paint diyas by ourselves, it’s so easy and fun process. You can involve your kid and make this as a project for them, they will do this much better than you expect and will be engage for some times, giving you opportunity to finish off your other works, does this sounds interesting to you now, no? Okie, if I say we can recycle these diyas and make it new each year with new colours and design now interested?
All we need:
Clay Diya/Oil Lamp
Oil or Water Colours or any paint colours
Small painting brushes
Tissue and newspaper
Glitter or plain colourful glue
And your creative ideas
Spread the newspaper on working area and keep all your diyas and other item ready.
Do a base coat of any colour you like if you are using water colour then you might need to do double coat, here used is golden colour and around the corner you can use glitter colour glue and make any pattern/design as you like. Just some simple dots, lines and see how beautiful it looks. These diyas were design by my nephew.
Or you can do like this, use a base colour, here red is used and then with sliver and golden colours dots are made in simple pattern.
Here a closer look, so pretty I think. And guess what these are the same diyas as the above golden painted you see, it’s just been recycled with new base colour and design. Not only we go green but also make it look new and interesting each year, cool rite?
And our diyas are ready to lighten up our home and life.
Simple isn’t it? Hope you got inspired and will try to be creative too.
