Happy Diwali

Diwali or Deepavali is the Hindu festival of lights. Diwali is traditionally celebrated by lighting diyas and candles, praying to Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha, bursting crackers and meeting friends and family to exchange Diwali greetings and gifts.

The quilling of the candle light holder, the bird shaped holder and the Ganesha were completed using newspaper/magazines.

Jewellery adds beauty to the festivities and hence the quilled Jhumka.

Decorative Diyas(Lamp holders) for festive occasions

Festivals in India are marked by bright lights. Festivals like Dusshera and Diwali  spiritually signify the victory of light over darkness.  Here are a few quilled Diya (Lamp holders) that I put together.

These quilled Diyas can be used to light up your houses during festivals, can adorn your puja or may be gifted to loved ones for special occasions.
