Diwali Bloghop - Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Diwali Bloghop! Today we are focusing on Diwali decor which is "anything but a card". I decided to make my own diya (oil lamp). This is my first time making one so I learnt some good lessons around decorating a circular cup. When I was wrapping the cup with ribbons I realized I need to cut the ribbons in small parts rather than one whole piece the length of the circumference. This is necessary to align the ribbon with the cup edge!

I took a small glass cup and decorated it with ribbons all around its sides. Then I added some red pearls and golden flowers on its edge. This was simple and quick and I plan to make more of these to light a row of lamps on Diwali days.

Thanks for stopping by!
