1. Spray paint the diyas: 

colorful diyas for diwali

Earthen lamps are an essential part of Diwali celebration. Diwali is not complete if there are no earthen lamps lit around your house. Let’s make those boring beige or red colored earthen lamps interesting. Get a spray paint from the local store and give a new look to those diyas. You can paint them with other colors too, but then lazy people will not want that.

Make sure you do 2-3 coats of paint on each diya and let the paint dry for a good amount of time. Keep a newspaper below the diyas to avoid spoiling the floor tiles.

2. Refinish the paintings: golden framed painting

My house is full of pictures and those frames look timeworn and rugged over a period of time. To overcome that situation, I spray those old structures. You can also use varnish to refinish the wooden frames. They look amazing and like new after this.

3. Buy scented candles: tea light candles

Some big colorful scented candles in your home can make it look more beautiful and cozy. Plus your house would smell so good. Moreover, what do you have to do to for implementing these Diwali decoration ideas? Just buy some candles and light them up. That is it.

4. Use potpourri: 


Vases and flower pots look awesome. They are attractive room decor options for so many women. Why not use that popular option for Diwali decoration? Get some brown or red colored potpourri and fill up the glass vases and bowls.

5. Use candle holders: candle holders

Things like candle holders can be an excellent room decor item. They take up less space, but they always make the area of the room stand out. Get some tea light candles to put in those candle stands. Alternatively, of course, you can go for bigger ones as well.

So, what do you think? Weren’t these Diwali decoration ideas accessible? Initially, they give an impression as if they will not make a difference, but I dare you try these out and see if they make a difference or not.
