DIY Crepe Paper Garland / Toran


Hand made home decor are very special and beautiful. Specially, for Indian festivals like Diwali we need a lot of decorations and variety too.;-)

And I am sure you will all agree that it is never early to have Diwali decor. So, here is a budget friendly project made with paper streamers to festoon your home.


This garland/toran can be made for less than $3.

Toran is a decorative door hanging in Hinduism, usually decorated with marigolds and mango leaves, or a string that is tied on the door with the flower on it as a part of traditional Hindu culture on the occasion of festivals and weddings.

If you want to make one too – follow this easy youtube tutorial 🙂

For this project the money spent is less, skill levels are super easy, however, you need to have a lot of patience and time to finish it.

All I did was – picked red and yellow paper streamers ( comes in pack of 2) from dollar store and with 1 red and yellow roll you can make a 7 ft garland (approx 85 inches ). To make it look Indian and traditional, I added 2 gold bells found @ Hobby Lobby.


This garland is just not for Diwali, i think it’s perfect for any Indian festival, party or holiday gathering 🙂

Recently relocated from The Grand Canyon State and still adjusting to the gloomy weather here...

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..;)
