Get Your Diwali DIY On!

It’s nearly that time of year where we’ll hunt for tea light holders and purchase all the candles we can find to prepare for the celebrations of Diwali. I’m all stocked up on mine, are you? Since Diwali is all about colour, getting together and having fun, I¬†thought it would be nice to put together a little post with diy’s and recipes you could try to save you sifting through the entire internet ūüôā


Last year I made diya shaped cookies with a simple biscuit recipe and they were yum, although my decoration skills were a bit shameful, I do want to give it another go this year as they make cute little gifts. As well as those, how mouth-wateringly good does CHOCOLATE CHIP BARFI sound!? Urgh! It’s one of Sanjana at KO Rasoi’s recipes and she is just amazing! I’ve made quite a few of her recipes and always head back to her site when I’m feeling adventurous. I will be making these during the run up to Diwali so keep your eyes peeled but I also HAD to illustrate it to share with you guys.




If you’re on Pinterest, go ahead check out the¬†Diwali¬†board I’ve created filled with fun diy’s for tea light holders and decorations, recipes, rangoli patterns and more! It’s so much fun to get the kids involved and I think it’s important that they have fun whilst learning about the festival so check them out! I’m also just in the process of writing a post about¬†things to write in a Diwali card if you’re struggling which will be up soon too.



Don’t forget to purchase your¬†Diwali cards from ready¬†to get them out to friends and family in time so come back and check for that soon!


OooOoOoo I will be in Leicester city centre for the Diwali Bazaar at Humberstone Gate in 2 weeks time. Find out more HERE.
