I still haven’t bought any diyas yet (Diwali is just 5 days away, what am I doing?). I had these unused Tea light candles packet from last year which I was planning to use this Diwali.
Update: Check my latest post on 10 very easy amazing Diwali craft ideas
And as luck would have it I saw this amazing post- Tealight with washi tape. The candles looked so cute and there was hardly any effort required (which always suits me). But there was just one problem.
I did not have washi tapes and I don’t think that they are sold in my area.
Now it seems that it was my lucky day bcoz I found another post with a tutorial to make washi tapes at home – with a double-sided tape and tissue paper. Can’t get better than that.
or you can just stick a glitter tape on them
And then you can just hand them over to your kids to decorate them.

How to make washi tape-

To make Decorative Tealights
Stick the double-sided tape on craft paper or the Tissue paper you want to use.
Cut along the edges of the tape.
Take off the white paper
Decorate the candles.
So your tea lights are transferred from this
to these decorative tea lights
