As I promised to post a Diwali craft idea in my last post, here I am with a talented guest today on my blog who will be sharing an awesome Diwali craft tutorial. Welcome Suprita Shetty, please let us know something about you.
Suprita: Hi!! I am Suprita Shetty from Pune. However, for the past 5 years, I have been living in Doha. I am an air hostess in one of the leading airlines. My hobby is dancing actually but, whenever I get some spare time I try my hand at some creative stuff. However, this was the first time I tried my hands on making the lantern. Here the steps are:
1) Take a jute mat roll which you can easily get from a bouquet shop/stationery shop.
2) Roll it according to the length and thickness you want. I made it 40 cm long and rolled it 4 times.
- 3) Staple the ends and use glue to stick it lengthwise.
- Now cut the corner of the open side of this small triangle and make it rounded. Now turn it upside down. The rounded corner that you just cut should be facing upwards. Now the important part, you need to fold the rounded corner as I have shown below.
Whoa!!! That’s great Suprita. I am sure a lot of my readers will enjoy making this for Diwali. It’s an easy-peasy and very beautiful Diwali craft idea. I am definitely going to try this. Thank you Suprita for sharing this lovely tutorial on my blog 🙂
Now a tip from my side: Try to make it in different colors and sizes and display them in a corner/on a mantel/on the side table. They will add instant cheer to your space.
Well, do try making this lantern and get ready to celebrate Diwali Carnival on my blog with a lot of other inspiring friends across the globe. The link party will be live next week.
Have a happy and creative weekend :))
