Diwali Recap

The Indian festival of Diwali was this past weekend. This is the rangoli I made at our house. Rather than using the traditional colored powder used in India, I used colored sand (from the local craft store to make my rangoli). 

Here is the rangoli at night, lit with diyas.

I also made swastik and om symbols with tea light candles.

Some floating candles in a copper bowl, surrounded by more diyas.

I created a centerpiece by placing votive candles in a copper bowl. 
I placed the bowl on a piece of saree fabric and placed flowers around the bowl.

  1. Every year I run into issues of how the house should be decorated for Diwali, I am glad you shared yours!
