  • Cut a circular base out of the thermocol (Polystyrene) or card board.
  • For the base you can also use waste CD Disk.

  • Trace the outline on the back side of foam sheet with the help of a pencil.
  • Cut it and stick it on the thermocol sheet.

  • After preparing the base for you diya holder, color the spoons with fabric color as it is best suitable for use with plastics.
  • Color four spoons with green color and the other four with orange (You can choose any color you like).
  • After you paint it, cut the above colored part.

  • Next, take the thermocol base and stick the orange spoons upside down with the help of glue gun.
  • After sticking all the orange spoons upside down, stick green spoons between the orange ones.
  • When you are finished, you will get a holder like this.

  • To make it more attractive you can use various decorative products like half beads, mirrors, colorful beads or anything of you choice.
  • Here, I have used small white beads for orange spoons.


  • To avoid placing every single bead one by one, what you can do is, take all the required beads and put it through a thread with the help of a needle.
  • Remove the needle leaving long threads on both the sides of the beads.
  • Apply glue gun or fevi kwik on the spoon.

Place the beads along with the thread.

  • Once the beads are nicely settled, pull out the thread and repeat the same for the remaining three spoons.

  • For the green ones you can stick beads and small mirrors.

  • And there you go!
    Your diya holder is set to enlighten your Diwali.
