Clay Diwali Diyas
Homemade Clay Diwali Diyas

Sindoor Sangham, our neighborhood mahila sangham had a Diwali Party this week. One of the activities we did was make clay diyas. I made those two and jeweled them for that festive Diwali feel. It was a nice thing to do with family and friends.

    Very nice diyas….. I bought some potter made diyas from Jamshedpur. They were cute – shaped like a Tulsi Mandapam as well as a lotus.

    Nina, Some info about clay : I usually buy clay from Michaels/ AC Moore for making Vinayaka moorthi for Ganesh chaturthi. U can find lot of varieties of clay like colored clay, clay which requires baking for hardening etc… I usually buy a self hardening clay which hardens on drying. And we can use a 40% coupon too. Hope this helps.
