Brighten up your Diwali decor with these DIY Rainbow Diwali Diyas.
You know when you plan something and it looks perfect in your head but then when you execute your plan and things don’t turn out as wonderful as expected, that happens to me all the time. Dreamers, we keep falling and making mistakes, and we keep dreaming!
Here’s one case where I had been thinking about an idea for ages and when it came together is was even better than what I had conceptualized. Yay! So I shared the process of these on my Instagram stories and so many of you reached out asking for a post so here goes! I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying all the Diwali preparation activities I’ve been doing with Little Mirchi. You can see more of our preparations here, here and here.
- White polymer clay
- Colorful polymer clay
- Small paintbrush
- Gold liquid gilding
- Baking tray
- Aluminum foil
Line the baking tray with aluminum foil and set aside
Mix the clay differently to create patterns, marbling effects and different variations of your diyas. You could stack the colors and roll them, roll them into logs first to layer them. Remember the different methods we used for Rainbow Rotis? Roll into a ball the size of a ladoo, a little bit larger than a ping pong.
Once the diyas dry, add a batti, cotton thread and fill them with your oil of choice. Have a bright and colorful Diwali!
Hope you enjoyed this colorful and fun craft! How are you preparing for Diwali?
