DIY Aarti Thalis for the Festivities

Aarti thalis are decorative plates used for puja and special festivities at home. Rakshabandhan is just around the corner, try making these DIY decorative thalis! We assure you, you’ll need nothing more than an hour of your time to make these and they’ll look extremely beautiful because they’re handmade with love. You can also use them for various ceremonies.

*Psst! These can even be used as wall hangings in your puja room too!



What you’ll need-

Diyas, Steel/melamine plate, glue, acrylic colour, varnish.

How To:

Step 1: Paint the plate using acrylic colour. Apply two to three coats and allow the paint to dry.

Step 2: Make a simple center design in a contrasting colour within which later we will paint a bold motif.

Step 3: Add bold designs around the center. Be creative and paint designs as you please.

Step 4: Paint another decorative outer design and a motif at the center. Stick a decorative lantern (diya) at the center in metallic acrylic colours for the aarti.

Step 5: Outline the designs using sparkle glue and stick rhinestones (kundan) or plastic gems to add a rich look to the thaali.

Step 6: Allow the paint and glue to dry.

Step 7: Apply a clear coat of varnish and allow it to dry.

This thali can be made bigger and suitable puja accessories in silver or bronze can be used. These thalis can be used to carry decorative diyas to adorn your homes and add colour to any festive occasion.



What you’ll need-

Diyas, rhinestones (kundan), two acrylic paints, paint brush, wooden base, two types of laces, decorative mirror pieces (Abla), glue, glitter tube, half pearls.

How To-

Step 1: Paint the diyas with your choice of colours and let it dry and repaint a second coat for a good, smooth finish.

Step 2: After they have dried, apply some glue on the edges and stick small white stones on it. (Repeat the same for others)

Step 3: Take the wooden base and paint it with the colour of your choice, (here we’ve used pearl silver shade)

Step 4: After it has dried, put glue on the edges and stick a thin lace on it and put a fine line of silver glitter tube on it.

Step 5: Then pick two sizes of rhinestones (here we’ve picked cobalt coloured). Now, put alternatively big and small stones on the edges. Now on top of the big ones, stick small white stones and on the edges make a motif using abla mirrors and rhinestones.

Step 6: On the four corners glue round mirrors and white rhinestones.  Create a flower in the center with rhinestones, half pearls and petal shaped rhinestones.

Step 7: Now stick the lace in a diagonal shape. And tada! We’re done!
