Jar lights

Floating diyas

If you have a pool or pond in your house, then taking some of the diyas and placing them on the pool or ponds causes some firefly effect and creates a different kind of enchantment. Place a tub instead of a pond or pool to fill it with water and then add petals and place the diyas on top of the water to create a magical look in this festive season when you decorate your house. This is the minimalist decor that gives an amazing result.
