8 Deepavali Decor Ideas To Set Your Home Year-Round

Are you a Deepavali décor enthusiast who is becoming tired of decorating the house to welcome the festive holiday only to put everything back into storage as soon as the festival ends? Store no more! Take a look at these design inspirations to infuse the festive spirit of the occasion into your decors and display them all year long (without sacrificing your scheme).

 

1. Fairy lights

Deepavali is a celebration of light, and it wouldn’t be complete without dazzling lights. To create a whimsical setting, drape fairy lights across your walls or over a sheer canopy. Or wrap them through furniture. If not, place them in glass containers, crystals, or any other holders for a stunning effect. Fairy lights are a great way to fill your space with an ethereal radiance that emits a gentle, inviting glow. Plus, they are affordable and come in different hues that you can choose from.

2. Candle display

Diyas represent virtue and purity, and lighting one signifies overcoming darkness and entering the light. While traditional Deepavali diyas are a vital emblem of the celebration, taper candles in vibrant colors may give them a unique touch. In addition, you can also use decorative candle holders to make a striking presentation on your dining table, sideboard, or any other surface. Similarly, you can use tealights in water-filled mason jars to make your floating candle display.

Tip: Use electric candles instead of wax candles to save time and effort. These are low-maintenance and mess-free (no wax dripping). Above all, it is easy to turn on and off with a simple switch.

3. Flower adornments

Deepavali isn’t complete without the aroma of fresh flowers in the air. While actual Deepavali blossoms won’t last all year, a synthetic flower arrangement can help you keep the holiday spirit alive. You can place a medley of petals in an ornamental centerpiece or jar. On the other hand, you can create a calm water show with floating flowers and tea light candles. You can also hang chains of flowers along with your door frames or windows to enhance your living space.

4. DIY Toran

During Deepavali, Indian doorways are famously adorned with torans (Indian decorative door hangings). Traditional torans come in different patterns, vibrant colors, and mirrorwork that provide a celebratory touch to any surface they are put on. You can purchase beautifully-designed torans online or design your own. Consider placing one on your wall or hanging one along the top of an old and worn window to give it some accent.

5. Rangoli art

Intricate rangoli designs are not just a mere decoration on Deepavali. With a few tweaks and inspiration, you can turn this traditional floor decoration into a year-round vibrant accent piece for your home. Bring out your inner artist (or hire a professional to do it for you) with rangoli-inspired paintings that will make your gateway look merry all year. The doorsill, the full door, a wall, or the floor can all serve as a canvas. Consider displaying your rangoli on the inside of your doorway if you live in an apartment where artwork in the lobby can be considered a violation of social regulations.

Tip: Paint works well on concrete, while ready-made sticker rangolis work best on tiles. But, you can opt for rangoli-inspired rugs and mats to act and place them at your doorway.

6. Dining table lights

Deepavali is associated with lights in any form. To create a dazzling, luminous tablescape, add battery-operated statement lights, candles, and lamps to your dining table. Moreover, you can add artificial twigs, blossoms, and branches, as well as intriguing trinkets to your arrangement.

7. Paper lanterns

During Deepavali, buy a few extra paper lanterns to create an ethereal, dreamy ceiling scape. Then, arrange your lanterns in a circle or strew them over the ceiling. An arrangement like this may lend bursts of color to a boring ceiling. Further, it can give your space a dash of bohemian charm even without light inside.

8. Sweet Temptations

This one is worth the special mention. If there is one celebration that is synonymous with sweets, then it is without a doubt Deepavali. Strategically place a bowl filled with a potpourri of sweet treats on top of the table or in a glass jar and make your home sweet-ready.
