Diwali Craft Tutorial - Lantern

As I promised to post a Diwali craft idea in my last post, so here I am with a talented guest today on my blog who will be sharing an awesome Diwali craft tutorial. Welcome Suprita Shetty,  please let us know something about you.

Suprita: Hi!! I am Suprita Shetty from Pune. However since past 5 years I am living in Doha. I am an air hostess in one of the leading airlines. My hobby is dancing actually but ,whenever I get some spare time I try my hand on some creative stuff. However this is the first time I tried my hands on making the lantern. Here the steps are:


Diwali Craft Tutorial


1) Take a jute mat roll which u can easily get from a bouquet shop/stationery shop.
2) Roll it according to the length and thickness you want. I made it 40cms long and rolled it 4 times.

  • 3) Staple the ends and use glue to stick it lengthwise.

  • Now cut the corner of open side of this small triangle and make rounded. Now turn it upside down. Rounded corner that you just cut should be facing upwards. Now the important part, you need to fold the rounded corner as I shown below.

  • Now fold the remaining part as shown in image below and cut two thin and small stripes of paper to make antennae of butterfly. Now paste these butterflies on the jute roll in random manner or as you like it.

Whoa!!! That's great Suprita. I am sure lot of my readers will enjoy making this for Diwali. It's an easy-peasy and very beautiful Diwali craft idea. I am definitely going to try this. Thank you Suprita for sharing this lovely tutorial on my blog :)

Now a tip from my side: Try to make it in different colour and size and display them in a corner/on mantel/on side table. They will add instant cheer to your space. 

Well do try making this lantern and get ready to celebrate Diwali Carnival on my blog with lot of other inspiring friends across the globe. Link party will be live next week.
