When I say Diwali, crackers may come into your mind as the first thing if you are a kid but we use Diyas (light candlesticks) which will brighten houses and adds beauty. Every festival has a story behind it, right? In the same way, the actions we do at that festival has also a reason. Diwali comes in the new moon period (called Amavasai) so lighting up Diyas removes the darkness and evil. Kaarthikai Deepam is a festival which is celebrated in Tamilnadu where people light up lights for 10 days. If you are Tamil people try this craft on that day.

Why not, you can replace this with candles to light up in churches if you won’t celebrate those listed festivals.

If you are looking for an adorable Diya stand for Diwali then you are in the right place. Here we have listed various innovative ways of making Diya stand and YouTube links too! If you look closely at all the crafts listed below the main thing you need is the newspaper and sometimes cardboard. Scissors and glue are the supporting elements. Stones, lace, and small mirror stones are decorative parts. With these three-part combines, we made these crafts. Besides, these 3 sections of things are easily available and cost-effective.
