Deepavali is the festival of lights. Diwali has a number of elements like diyas, kandils aka lanterns, firecrackers, rangoli the major part being Light. I am one of the craziest fans of diwali, lights, diyas and am certain that the only diwali preparation I can never go wrong with is arranging, finding and making the most out of diyas to decorate any given space in my house or even the whole office.

Chai glass: This is something every small town family does in India. Fill ¾ of the glass with water and top it up with oil, you can find cotton wicks made and sold at any street especially during diwali and your done with an amazing and cost effective diya. You can try a variety of colors available in the market to make your diwali even more colorful.
One of the most popular variants of diyas available. Get the simplest diya and color and decorate the way you want. Color, put on some glass in different shapes, so much you can do.
A big glass bowl filled with water and flowers with candles floating will bring any space an aesthetic finish. Helps you stay away from the toil of filling oil.
Just like aarti ki thaali a beautiful glass or squarish wooden board decorated can be used to make thaali sort of thing using the most traditional elements.
If you’re ready to splurge a little more you can try gracefully made diyas in different shapes and sizes to decorate and bring a royal look.
