Diwali Decoration Ideas with Lights:
Diwali is the celebration of light. The most apparent method to celebrate is with many twinkling lights. Although I am a fan of Diya’s, I don’t use them as often as I’d like and mostly during puja. I’m cautious when using them in the home due to children running around. They also do not last long. Mumbai is typically a breeze, and it’s a high-rise. Diwali is a time of celebration and many string lighting for me. When the Diwali lights are lit, there is no need to have regular lighting in our home. There are string lights everywhere, and they emit enough light to the entire room.

What if you don’t own sheer curtains? This is what I’d suggest you do. Bring your solid curtains up towards the sides and hang them loosely, as in the picture below. You can then use any sheer fabric you own, such as a dupatta or Sari. It can match your curtains or provide an eye-catching contrast. The very fabric from the rod to the right and behind the hooked curtains. Strings of light are hung in the background of the dupatta. You can also use your dupatta or sari to create swag, like in the photo below. It can be put in front of your windows, above your couch, or on any other wall or painting that you wish to emphasize. You can then hang the string lights on your swag.
