Make your own Diwali lanterns
Diwali is another reason to make some brilliant art pieces. You can learn how to make different types of paper lanterns and create a beautiful ambience with unique décor during Diwali. What better way to spend your day off with your family than spending it making some beautiful DIY lanterns while munching on some of the delicious Diwali snacks!
Here’s a simple Diwali lantern craft that you can literally make while chilling on the sofa and watching TV!

What you will need:

Here’s what you need to do

What you will need: Image Source: https://bit.ly/2RyZYhA
Lightly sketch the design that you want on your lantern on the side of the paper that is visible.
Then, place your paper on styrofoam and start punching in holes along the lines of your design, very carefully with the thumb tack. Avoid poking holes too close to each other or the paper will tear. Continue until you have a dotted line along the entirety of your design.
Now, gently erase the lines you drew, while being careful not closing the holes up.
Cut out strips of the paper – shorter ones in the size of 4”x11” and taller ones in the size of 6.5”x11”.
Wrap this cut out from the cardstock around a cylindrical shape like a big candle and paste the double-sided tape to secure the lantern together.

Note: These could pose a high risk if placed around a burning candle. So, a flameless candle is recommended.

These make for lovely indoor home décor items during the festive season of Diwali. You can make them in multiple colours to suit the colours of the room you want to place them in. Don’t be shy about trying multiple designs and experimenting as much as you want!
