Directions to Make Paper Plate Diya Craft

Take a 9-inch Paper plate and Fold it in half. Cut along the fold in two equal halves.

Start painting on the rear side of the plate. You can choose any bright colour. We are using Crayola Washable Paint. If you would like to skip this step, you can use a colour plate instead of a white plate.

Once it is fully covered with paint, let it dry for a While.

Now, its time to decorate it. We have used Flourosent paint from Ikea Brand (Gold colour) It is very easy to draw details with this paint. It is very dense and gives good embedding. you can also use glitter, and stones to decorate the Diya as you wish.

Finally, Cut out a piece of yellow paper in the share of a Fire and Paste it at the top centre.

Make a diya

Your Diya is ready! It takes less than 15 minutes to make this (Excluding the drying time) and is a perfect craft for Preschoolers to make during Diwali.
