Ideas for Diwali Decoration

Decorative Candles And Diyas

When it comes to Diwali decoration, candles and diyas take the cake. There’s nothing better than a room filled with lights to add effortless beauty and ring in the festive spirit. You can even make these at home by using waste cans for candle holders and wrapping coloured paper to put candles in them. If you have a garden, you can decorate your yard with diyas. Arranging diyas on the walls can also give an illusion of hanging lights, making it look more aesthetic.

Flower Power

Flowers are a significant part of any celebration and are a great way to deck up your house during festivals. Make flower garlands and use them to decorate your stair railings and your house entrance. Attaching string lights to these flower garlands enhances their beauty, creating that joyous diwali atmosphere. Another way to use flowers is to fill a vase with water and place flowers in them to add a centrepiece to your room.

Creative Rangoli Designs

Rangoli is an integral part of Diwali celebrations at home and symbolizes a welcome to the Goddess Lakshmi. The holy symbols of Om, Swastik, Goddess Lakshmi are the common rangoli themes for Diwali. Placing a lighted Diya at the centre along with sprinkling some glitter on the rangoli can add a quaint touch to your Diwali decor. 


Try using new furnishing items like festive-themed bed sheets, pillow covers, carpets and curtains to feel in sync with the Diwali celebrations. If you don’t have time to repaint your home this Diwali, try using bright wallpaper or throw in some colourful cushions. You could also add a decorative item like a painting or  wall art to add a pop of colour and brighten up the place. 

Diwali Pooja Room Decoration

One place that could use some sprucing up this Diwali is the pooja room. As idols of Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha are worshipped on Diwali, you can beautify them with flowers. You can give your traditional thali a makeover or bring out the fancy ones with different colours and designs to give it a more modern feel. 


Fill your home with unique fragrances from a potpourri combo by taking dried flowers, petals and herbs in a decorative bowl. Mix your favourite combination of essential oils and woody scents into the bowl to make the arrangement aromatic.

Memory Wall With Fairy Lights

A creative way of putting up your most cherished memories is by hanging photos along with fairy lights. Fairy lights are affordable and readily available in the market, and stringing them up along with printed images of your loved ones can help transform empty spaces instantly.
