Bangle Lampshades

You can now use your old bangles for Diwali decorations too. Simply stack and glue the bangles to form a container, or paste them over some old glass candles. Fill each container with wax or ghee, and use them as gorgeous Diwali candle decorations!

 

Hanging Lanterns

Give your home the shimmering glow vintage style. Purchase some plain lanterns or create your own. Fix a candle, diya or bulb in each of the lanterns and tuck them to a string inside or outside of your house.

 

COLOURS Diwali Decoration Ideas:- 

Without colours, what is left of decorations?

 

Showers of Flowers

Paint & Polish

If you’re not planning for whitewashing this Diwali, make a list of selected spaces in your house to revamp instead.

It might be your kitchen cupboards. Or, it might be as small as a coffee table. Perhaps, one of the walls in your living room. Brighten it up with pastels, metallic colours or printed wallpapers.

 

Rainbows & Rangolis

To make a rangoli, you can use anything from shredded flowers, chalk, colour powders or pastels. Many people also like to use paper cuttings and decorated cardboards.

 

Some of the popular rangoli designs include motifs like peacocks, daisies and paisleys. You can also make colourful geometric patterns and mandalas.

 

FLOW & FLAIR (Best Diwali Decoration Ideas):- 

Let the pieces flow together in one tune.

 

Delightful Draperies

Furnishings make a home look fabulous. For Diwali, select something which matches the shade of your walls and also, which is made of some sheen-giving fabric.

 

You can also use old festive clothes as the draperies, such as using dupattas as curtains. Using old golden thread silk saris as curtains always does the trick!

 

Garlands & Leaves

Floral garlands, of course, look marvellous on staircases, railings and walls. Apart from these, an exciting idea is to string a pompom garland handcrafted with colourful wool threads to decorate your interiors.

Accentuate further with things like faux green leaves, large-sized beads or glitter marbles.

Paper Potpourris

 

Paper craft is one of those interesting Diwali decoration ideas. You can use coloured papers to make wall hangings, garlands, cut-out lanterns and torans. The best part, they are quite cost-effective and also, they can be easily created at home. 

 

Woo the Walls

Use labels of ‘Happy Diwali’ along with other Diwali greetings wall art. Ethnic wall art is another great idea. And of course, you can adorn your walls with some beautiful paintings of your choice. When it comes to wall decorations, your imagination is the only limit. 

 

TOUCH OF TRADITION

Add blurbs of tradition to your home.

 

Motif Accessories

A home on Diwali is incomplete without a Shubh Laabh, Lakshmi Paduka and Swastika. Make them a part of your decorations too. From glass to wood and clay accessories, you will find many cheap to expensive accessories comprising of these traditional motifs.

 

The best place to use these motifs is at the front door, near the entrance or in the pooja ghar.

 

Urli Bowl

Apart from carrying simplicity and tradition, it makes up for a great Diwali decoration when teamed up with other decorative ornaments.

 

Little Idols

From small-sized brass Ganesha to a pair of clay-made Ganesha-Lakshmi, these little idols are not just decorative parts of a Diwali decoration but essential too.

 

Colourful Kandeels

Classic Glassware

Take out all those glassware sets you’ve been storing in your bed trunks for years and bring them into display as statement pieces. Turn to your centre table, wall rack or side table, and use these glass items as a part of your Diwali decoration.

 

Fragrance Fervours

Fragrance always walks side by side with the festive decorations. Instil some fragrance in your home with flowers, room scents, scented candles or sprays.
