DIY Hand Painted Diyas

Hi...Today's post is about the most fun I had doing something special for this Diwali....I painted so many diyas this year that I am going to share with you today.
You must have seen some of them in my previous blogpost Diwali 2014 
I have used the following materials:
  •  Terracotta Diyas- varied sizes.
  •  Acrylic colors- Regular and Pearl finish.
  • Rhinestones- Different colors, shapes and sizes.
  • 3D Outliners/ Puffy paints.
  • Glue- Any strong glue will do.
  •  Paintbrushes.
  • Water- for cleaning the brushes.
  • Rag cloth.
I soaked the diyas in water for 15-20 mins, then rinsed them and let them dry completely....
When they were dry, I used acrylic colors in different combinations to paint them....
When the paints were completely dry, I further decorated them with 3D Outliners....
After it dried, I glued the rhinestones to the diyas...It was a backbreaking project, but the final output washed away the pain....I was very happy with the way they turned out...

Let me show you some pictures now....Here, I have used big Diyas, approximately 6 inches in diameter.....I have tried to give them an Antique look....

DIY Mirror Candle Holder

Hello my friend, welcome back!!
I have always been fascinated by mirrors, and candles and the 
combination of the two just takes my breath away.....
Today I'll show you how I made this Mirror Candle Holder....

Mirror Candle Holder

I used the following material:
  1.  5" round mirror
  2. Turquoise teardrop rhinestones
  3. Yellow flower-shaped rhinestones
  4. Pearls- small and big
  5. Glass votive holder
  6. Glue (forgot to keep it in the picture)


The process was not as complex as it looks.....
I decided on the layout and then glued the rhinestones, pearls and 
the votive holder on the mirror base......
And this is the result.....

Candle Holder- Centerpiece

And this is how it looks serving its purpose....
