Festival Home Decor – Easy DiY to pep up the festive mood

Festival Home Decor – Easy DiY

In India, the month November would bring in both rain and festivals like Diwali, Navratri, Karthigai Deepam etc. 🙂 The Tamil month “Karthigai” which is well known for its Diya festival – Festival of lights in Tamil Nadu. As the Diya festival is approaching, it’s now time to get your home ready for “Karthikai Deepam” (A delayed post,of course! 😐 Apologies 😐).

Traditionally, we used to light Agal Vilakku / Diyas made from clay (oil lamps) during this light festival. ‘Agal Vilakku‘ is still being used in India during this festival. Tea light candles & LED candles could serve as good replacements for these traditional Diyas, where there is no chance for using ahal vilakku  like when you are scared of oil spills on your carpet/floor, sliding accidents etc
