Dress your home pretty this Diwali, make these easy lotus tealights and add glam quotient to your Diwali decor.

All you need is just four simple supplies to make these gorgeous tealights.
  1. Acrylic Rhinestones in different colours (teardrop and round shape)
  2. Cardboard
  3. Tealights
  4. Glue
Diwali DIY
First cut cardboard circles (as many circles as you want to make lotus tealights). The size of the circle should be 3 inches larger than tealight. Now apply some glue at the base of tealight and stick it in the centre of the cardboard circle.

Once it is dried start sticking round acrylic rhinestones in the lightest shade like white or pale white around the base of the tealight.

Now stick teardrop rhinestones in the darkest shade. Start from the edge of the circle.

Let it dry for a while. At this stage, tealight will look like this (below image).

Stick teardrop rhinestones in a lighter shade than the above one in a way that the base of rhinestone is on the cardboard and tip rests on the outer, darkest rhinestone. Stick where space is left (i.e space between inner round rhinestone and outer teardrop rhinestone).

Once all the rhinestones are stuck on the cardboard, your lotus tealight is ready.
