Hello Friends ,
Diwali/Deepavali is here, The festival of lights ! Here's what we follow as traditions at home, Diwali celebrations lasts for up to five days. We decorate our homes with tiny electric lights or small clay oil lamps, Bowls of water with candles and flowers floating on the surface is something my little ones loves to do along with me :)
Its the time of year when we make special effort to clean our homes before Diwali, wear new clothes and give gifts of sweets to family members, close friends and not to forget Fireworks!!
Deepawali or Diwali is a festival of lights symbolizing the victory of righteousness and the lifting of spiritual darkness. I have been busy making Cards and Gifting bags all these years so for a change thought of some decoration this time !!
Taking you along with the process of making a Glass Bottle Lamp!
Make a light decoration
I gathered my supplies.-
Modge Podge matte finish ,
Paper rope ,
doily tape ,
ready made fabric flower ,
Bakers Twine &
a Owl charm!
The basic steps of the process involved putting a little bit of glue on the circumference of the bottle, placing paper rope over the glue, and holding that part down for some time to make sure that it set enough for me to move on to the next section.!
You can roll up the whole bottle with twine or paper rope but The crafter in me wanted to decorate it .... so I went ahead with keeping the rope as it is with coats of Modge Podge matte finish & added doily papers , ready made fabric flower , Bakers Twine and finally a Owl charm!
