Diya decoration ideas  – Deepawali diyas are earthen lamps made of clay.It is filled with ghee or oil and a wick is made of cotton in the front after dipping them into the Diya.
Flour Diya Flour diyas can be made by those who are living abroad and have difficulty in buying them. To make the diya prepare dough with your regular flour(atta) and water.Make balls of the flour and give them a diya shape of your choice.Put them under sunlight for sometimes and colour them with poster or acrylic colors.Let them dry again and your decorative diyas are ready.
Decorating diyas with flowers You can decorate diyas with flowers as well. I like decorating diyas with rose petals  With rose petals Diyas  not only add festive look to the lamp but give that auspicious touch also.
