    wow Vid..this is gorgeous. I too picked up some plain ones this time mainly ‘coz it was off-season 🙂 was planning on decorating them and have some idea now 🙂 .. btw did you soak them in water & dry…before this deco ?

    Hi Anu,
    Nope re …I didn’t soak them in water …Just painted them. But for the finish to be long lasting it is good to apply a coat of varnish in the end…

    can u please give ideas for plain circle shape diyas

  11. vidhya says:


    Well, for plain diyas
    1.) you may coat them with bright metallic acrylic colours , line the top rim with contrast glitter glue. This will be a simple decoration.
    2.) you may add some rhinestones, pearls on the side walls of the diya in some pattern of your choice . These gems can be stuck with fevicol or glitter glue itself
    3.) Also , you make decorate a small square (piece of wood aprrox 10*10 cm ..) with kundan, rhinestone …..and then place the metallic acrylic colour coated diyas in the middle of this block. This will enhace the look of your simple diya 🙂

  12. this is one of the best hand painted diyas i have ever seen ! i have soem acrylic paint at home and am tempted..
