Diwali Lamp Inspiration by DT Priya Mishra

Hello Crafty Friends,

 

Priya here today with an Inspiration post for you. 

 

Today I'm going to share a Lamp. This is Diwali month and you all must be busy decorating your house. Then why not something handmade, quick and attractive. 

 

Here's my project...

 



 

 

Well, it was not very quick but I had fun making it. No, I have not followed any cutting files for this, made my own drawing here. Used a lot of things from my stash and a lot of new things too.

 

 

 

These are the materials I used to make this and I listed the same at the end of the post. So, for this first, I drew the outline of the lamp on a piece of paper and traced the same on the patterned paper. Then I cut out the unnecessary parts and attached vellum on the window panels. Then I assembled the lamp. 

 

After the upper part is done, I used a thermocol sheet to make the base of the lamp, so that it can stand properly. I cut it in a hexagon shape and attached cardstock on both sides to give it more strength. Then I attached the empty aluminium foil roll into it and covered the whole part with patterned paper. Then for attaching the lamp also I cut a small thermocol sheet and covered it with patterned paper and attached it to the tissue roll. Once the base is dried completely and looked firm, I attached the lamp on it.

 

Here, You can keep it unattached and adhere a tea light on it also. I'm planning to do that in future.

 

Then I attached laces on the borders to make it look more attractive, also attached some flowers which are from the store. Some leaf die cuts here and there and my lamp is ready.

 

Some more images 

 















 

Materials Used:

  • White Cardstock
  • Enogreeting Paper Pack
  • Vellum
  • Papericious Lace
  • Thermocol Sheet
  • Empty Foil roll
  • Flowers 
  • Die-cut Leaves
  • Tacky Glue
  • Paper Cutter

Sun catcher Wall hanging by Blog Coordinator Aditi Mahajan


Hello Everyone,

Time surely flies! It's October and I'm back with an inspiration for you for our October Challenge! 


Today I decided to make some DIY gifts for the festive season. These project ideas are so simple, that parents/teachers can teach kids to make them and they can proudly flaunt their hand-made creations. 

First up is a Sun Catcher Wall Hanging- Included the twist of lights in the form of the Sun and the celebration here are the festivals!



For this hanging, I altered an MDF piece, however, you could simply take an image of the sun from the internet and trace it onto chipboard (those good at drawing can draw it also). Next, cover the surface with gesso if your base is dark. Play with colors. Here I spread colors on the gell press plate and lifted them on my surface. First yellow, next orange and then some magenta. Do this on both the front and back, since it's a hanging both sides will be visible. Next, pick a stencil and place it on the base, dab some gold paint with a piece of sponge. This enhances the look and adds some interest. Cut out pieces of chipboard for the eyes, nose, mouth, and eyebrow and paint them. Stick them with glue. Punch two holes- one on the top and one at the bottom. String a few beads and a bell and tie it to the hole at the bottom. Similarly, string some beads with a hook and add it to the top. That's it, you have a fantastic wall hanging.

Here are some close ups:







Next, is a tea light holder.




For this, I used an MDF Coaster base, and brushed white gesso. I stuck some pieces of newspaper and then covered it with gesso again. I then used some modelling paste through a stencil for added texture. Next, I applied some sand texture. I then spritzed some colours. Next, On the sand texture, I used Inka gold to highlight it. Finally, I mixed some metallic paint to modelling paste and applied it with another stencil. 

Supply list:


  • MDF/Chipboard Base
  • Acrylic paints- Standard and Metallic Finish
  • Gell Press
  • Assorted Stencils
  • Beads
  • String
  • Bell
  • Plastic loop for the hanging
  • Inka Gold
  • Sand Texture
  • Modelling Paste
  • White Gesso
  • Newspaper pieces

Hope you're inspired and do participate in the challenge!Happy Crafting!Aditi
