Kids Craft – Diwali S6


Kids are on fall break and you must be wondering how to keep them occupied, while you are busy with Diwali preparations? Then look no further 🙂

Here is an easy peasy way to make collage Diyas from card stock or scrapbook paper 🙂 Kids will absolutely enjoy making these colorful diya’s and can be used in multiple ways.

So, lets get started :

Step 1: Take a card stock/scrapbook/glitter paper and cut into circles. For each diya you need 3 circles(1 can be a little larger).

Step 3: Glue 3 pieces together to form the base of diya like shown below.

And you have beautiful and colorful collage Diya pieces to decorate your kids room, entry door or accent wall, and don’t forget to make Diwali cards 😉

About Nima

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
