Get crafty for Diwali

Published on 8 October 2019 2 min read

Bright lights, vibrant colours and fabulous fireworks can only mean one thing – Diwali! We believe in crafting for every occasion, so join us in celebrating the festival of light by getting creative with our brilliantly bright projects. 

Crochet magnificent mandalas 

Grab your crochet hook and the brightest, most colourful yarn you’ve got in your stash – it’s time to start mandala making! These gorgeously intricate circular figures represent the universe in Hindu and Buddhist symbolism, and they make the perfect vibrant addition to your home around Diwali. Why not make a bunch and scatter them as table decorations for a Diwali dinner party or string them up to make decorative garland? 

Stitch stunning starry designs

Diwali is all about letting the light in, and what could be brighter than the moon which illuminates the sky every night? These gorgeous star and moon cross stitch and embroidery designs make the perfect project for any beginner crafters. Stitch on to bright fabrics and frame them for delightful Diwali decorations; embroider onto cushions for beautiful home decor or stitch on to garments to carry the light with you wherever you go!

If the stars aren’t up your street, this gorgeous paisley embroidery will make a great repeating pattern on garments, home accessories and more. 

Brilliantly bright home decor

Fireworks and illuminations aren’t just for outdoors! Bring a touch of the brightness of Diwali into your home with our top makes. All these patterns would look fabulous in brighter colour schemes, so don’t be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to your shade choices!

Light up your home

You can’t celebrate the festival of light without a few candles! Grab your tea lights (imitation battery-powered ones are advised!) and get to work on these gorgeous little tealight cosies and decorations. We guarantee these makes will be a talking point, perfect for if you’re entertaining over the Diwali festival.

Wear bright, feel bright

If you’re having a Diwali celebration, why not create something vibrant and exciting to wear? These shawls make the perfect addition to any outfit, especially as the weather gets colder! Switch the colours to suit your wardrobe, and don’t forget to make it extra bright for the festival of light!
