15 Diwali Home Decor Ideas For Easy Sprucing Up

Updated - Oct. 30, 2020 8 min read

As much as I want to claim that I adore all festivals equally, I'd be lying if I said I don't have a special soft spot for Diwali. First things first, I love its position on the calendar, and the comfortably chilly weather it's usually surrounded by. Then you have the delicious mithais, heaps of festive gifts, shopping plans for new festive clothes, and a house adorned by lights and trinkets. It's around Diwali that everything around you begins to sparkle, both literally and figuratively. 

 

But for now, let's talk about Diwali decor. The easiest way to submerge yourself in festivities, is to make your surroundings festival-ready. But I won't hold it against you, if you tell me you're bored of the usual Diwali decor formulas. Because honestly so am I. And with exactly that thought in mind, I set about to collate some quirky festive decor ideas, to help both you and myself, do something different with our living space this year. So, without any further rambling, let me jump straight to some Diwali home decor ideas that will leave your house picture-perfect, and your guests starstruck! 

 

Diwali Light Decoration Ideas

 

1. String Lights Intertwined In Fake Flower Garlands

This Diwali light home decor idea looks absolutely beautiful and requires minimal DIY skills. All you need is a set of flower garlands and some mini string lights, the length depending on where you plan to put them up. Intertwine them together, and seal with tape to create these beautiful festive lights. You can put them up individually at different corners of the house, or place all of them on a wooden stick for a curtain of floral Diwali lights.

2. Fairy Lights Wrapped Around Wooden Ladder

For a dose of rustic, offbeat Diwali light decor, wrapping some fairy lights around a wooden ladder is an economical and minimum effort idea. There are different ways you can use the fairy lights, such as tightly coiling them around the steps of the ladder, or pining them at the top such that they cascade down like in the picture below.

3. Mason Jars + Battery Operated String Lights + Bouquet

This is one of those Diwali light decoration ideas that leave behind an impression of elegance and aesthetic sense, without revealing how little effort you had to put in. If you have a few clear mason jars lying around the house, you can put them to good use by stuffing a string of battery operated lights. You can also use other household containers like jam jars and coffee jars by soaking them in soap water over-night, removing the labels, and cleaning thoroughly. Along with the lights, put a bouquet of fake flowers, and seal the deal by tying a knot with a jute rope string.

4. Colourful Rattan Ball Lights 

The perk here is that you can either go the DIY way, or get some ready-made lights online. To create your own Rattan ball lights, you just need to wrap some glue-heavy strings of yarn around a balloon, leave them to dry through the day, and then remove the balloon after popping it. Or if you're feeling lazy, you can order some in whatever size or colour you deem fit. We'd highly recommend getting a string of multi-coloured Rattan ball lights.

5. Mini String Lights Around Hula Hoop

We love this Diwali light decoration idea because of how budget-friendly it is. Seriously, by investing in just some mini string lights and a hula hoop, you get a picture-worthy chandelier for the living room, or perhaps, for an outdoor seating arrangement where your guests and you plan to relax. You can use a longer piece of string light, but because that process might be a tad more complicated, we'd suggest just taping several mini strands along the hoop, and putting a string that you can hang the chandelier with.

These are especially perfect if you've been looking for colourful Diwali decor ideas for the living room.

Another vibrant and colourful Diwali decor idea, we love the use of bright Leheriya dupattas piped with marigold garlands at the edges, to adorn your doorways with.
