Diwali DIY Decoration ideas…..Lets Sparkle!

With the festival of lights, Diwali almost upon us, I am very happy to share my Diwali DIY Decoration ideas. The Diwali post was appreciated last year too. Check out last year’s post, those DIYs are just as relevant this year too. Hope you like this year’s Diwali DIY Decoration ideas too.

Diwali DIY Decoration idea No. 1: Taking centre stage with a Diwali Centrepiece.

I am using this metal baking tray which is as old as the hills and looking like them too. But going on with the JUNK to JOY series everything has a purpose and can be up cycled into something useful.

I chose to cover the old baking tray with this marble print contact paper. Contact paper has its own adhesive so all I did was peel it and stick it.

Just added the flowers and for the light source you can use any battery operated candle or lamp. The marble contact paper, flowers and the lamp add the sparkle back to the old tray and this centrepiece would look pretty on any table.

Diwali DIY Decoration idea No. 2: Not a basket case!

The second DIY, seconds the fact that everything has a purpose and this simple basket can also be used as a decoration. Its wooden texture adds a nice Boho chic touch.

I just hung the basket on a nail and arranged the flowers this way. It’s a very simple idea but it does glam up the place.

As marigold flowers are used a lot during Diwali, I went with the yellow, orange and white theme. Fresh Marigold flowers would look awesome too.

Last year I used fresh Marigold flowers and as I was doing the DIY, I caught a fat, green worm which was wrapped around the flower. After many screams I completed that DIY with pincers. All DIYs are not that easy ok. Since I am not that ECO friendly with all green things (except HULK I like him) and so that no green things sentiment or mine were hurt, artificial flowers were used in this project!

A festive painting: MARIGOLD  SPARKLE!

Painted the marigold flower, it’s such a lovely round, chubby and bright coloured rich yellow. It really does sparkle and makes everything more festive. So I named the painting Marigold Sparkle.

Sharing some night shots, one can really appreciate light at night. Fairy lights add the magic and sparkle.

Do comment and let me know if you like the painting and the Diwali DIY Decoration ideas.  Share it with family and friends. The previous DIY room decoration ideas link is here in case you missed it.

Wishing you and your families a sparkling Diwali filled with happiness and Glee.

Easy DIY (do it yourself) room decoration ideas without glue.

Hey everyone,

If you have a room maybe a dorm room, a balcony, living room or any room that is in need of of a little  decoration then this post is just right for you.  These are 2 easy DIY room decoration ideas without glue. Yes so no chip chip or sticky business. Just pure creative fun!

So I recently bought 2 wooden coasters and yes they are used to put hot vessels on it I know that ..…but I could vision some 3 to 4 DIY  room decoration ideas when I saw these wooden coasters and so I am sharing them with you. I could also make a part 2 of this  post, comment below if so.

Now let’s get started:

DIY decoration idea without glue No. 1: Hanging planter shelf

You will need 1 wooden coaster, this coaster is 7 inches in diameter and one which has grooves like this and any thick string. Length of each string is 55 inches, but you can customize it accordingly. You will need 2 such strings.

 Just treadle the string from opposite ends of the coaster so that it looks like this from the front.

And like this at the back. Then add a tight knot at the top and we are done. 

I added this beautiful Peace Lily plant, it easily took its weight  and it makes the room looks so pretty.

You could also try faux plants like this succulent. This DIY looks like it’s a floating , hanging shelf/planter all you have to do is hang it in your room and it brings the room to life.

DIY decoration idea without glue No.2: Wall decor.

You will need the same wooden coaster and any artificial flowers of your choice.

Then I just adjusted these flowers into these groves and fussed over them till I was happy with its composition. This one is a no brainer, really easy. Within minutes you have a cute wall decoration ready for your room. I did not use any tape or glue the flowers stayed on by themselves.

Here are the pictures of how it looks in my room. I liked it a lot hope you like it too.

No post or room decoration is complete without a painting so popped in a painting too. It’s a textured one that I made with a palette knife. You can’t see the texture in the above image right?

But you can see the texture in this one. It’s a cute 8 x 8 acrylic on canvas painting I named it Floral touch. I think plants, paintings and DIYs can transform any space.

Hope you try out these Easy DIY (do it yourself) room decoration ideas without glue. Please comment and share with friends who like creativity.

Till next time wishing you happiness and glee.
