Decorative Lanterns for Diwali, You can also create a floating diya. Diwali is one of the most bright and sacred festivals to the Hindus. The meaning of Deepawali (Diwali) itself states a row or collection of lamps. You can just make it anytime and without fail these cute lanterns will beautify the area wherever you keep them. We love Diwali at home and its the time of the year when the whole family is at one place, celebrating and enjoying. Hindu kids greatly enjoy decorating the thali and consider it a privilege to recieve the permission to do so.
