Diwali Paper Luminaries..

Standard

It is just a week left for Diwali and I always have the feeling that I do not have enough decorations..;-) hehe.

Anyways, if you agree with me and are looking for last minute ideas here is a cool idea found on pinterest!

I love these paper luminaries and are super easy, quick and practical.

They are punched with thumbtacks and here is complete tutorial.

Since, I am not good @ free hand drawing – took a printout of stencil pattern and punched all along the design 🙂 (stencil patterns)

All you need is glass candle holders/LED candles

Cardstock

Foam/cork board

Thumb tack/pushpin

Printout of the pattern

Double sided tape

Place the card stock onto a piece of cork or foam sheet and lay the stencil pattern on top.

Take a pushpin/thumb tack and start punching holes making sure they are not too close

Once done, wrap it around the candle and you have pretty luminaire ready…:-)

See you in my next Diwali post!

Cheers!

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..;)
