LACE CANDLE HOLDERS
– Use lace/border to wrap the glass and measure it, ensure the fit is snug.
– Using a pencil, mark about a centimetre more than what you have measured.
– Cut the lace
– Wrap it around the glass
– Glue the two ends of the lace using super glue
– Place a tea light candle in the glass and ta-dah! You have candles for every occasion!
PING PONG FAIRY LIGHTS
– Untangle fairy lights, so that you can see every bulb clearly.
– Using a pair of scissors punch holes in the ping pong balls, buy a cheaper brand as this makes it easier to punch holes. (Ensure you’re being safe while doing so)
– Fit the bulbs into the ping pong balls. (You can fit the ping pong balls in a certain pattern if you’d like) Plug it in and switch it on, and we’ll let you see the rest for yourselves!
– Using superglue, carefully stack the bangles one on top of the other. (Ensure you are stacking the bangles in a straight manner)
– Light your tea light candle on a flat surface, or in a large diya, and simply place the stacked glass bangles around the candle! This DIY is so simple and is sure to add a fine touch of Indian aesthetics to your home this Diwali!
– Paint the diyas – plain and simple, crazy and colourful, anything you like!
– Let the paint dry
– Mix the M-Seal by kneading the white and grey mixtures together till the product of two is light grey and soft
– Use the M-Seal to connect 2 or 3 diyas together and let it dry for about 2 hours
– Paint over the M-Seal, and you have elegant diyas for your home!
