Last Minute Diwali DIY & Home Decor Ideas

This is the first time that not only I shot and edited the video but also published it in just one day. I worked really hard (well 18 hrs in a stretch) to bring this video to you because 
I had promised I'll share some easy Diwali DIY and Home Decor Ideas. 
So below is the video and I really hope you all like it. 
Happy Diwali To 3D Family!!!


I am already late in sharing the ideas but these are some really very simple and last minute Diwali DIY & Decor ideas. You can involve your family too and make the most of these holidays.
Crepe Paper Marigold Flowers:
I know you can't keep any flower fresh and bright for long. That's when we need faux flowers. Instructions to make crepe paper marigold flowers are given in video. If you can't get crepe paper then you can use colored tissue paper or paper ribbons. I learned this craft from my mom when I was little and still cherish those memories and this is one of my favorite flower crafts.

I made them in great numbers and loved decorating my home with these paper marigolds.

Dried Branch Dining Table Centerpiece:
I love it when things are done differently and with some personal touches. And rather than indulging in splurge I love to make things my own. That's what I did when I threw a party at home. I created a beautiful dining table centerpiece that looked totally festive. I saw this beautiful string light somewhere and when I found it online I ordered it without the second thought. It is so so awesome that I am using it in almost all my Diwali vignettes. The best thing is that it is LED string light that comes in various lengths and it is waterproof so you can use it outside in the garden, in aquarium and in urn too. If you are intrigued then click here to see and buy this string light. Instructions to use it are given in video and below is the image.

Once the party was over I gave some twist to the dried branch and placed it on the side table in my living room and what a festive ambiance it created in my living room. How did I do that you ask. Well, you can see the steps in the video.

Seashell & Conch Candles:
Now this is the best thing I have ever tried and no, this is not my idea, I found the inspiration on Pinterest and liked it instantly. All you need is just some seashells, conchs, paraffin wax, wicks and ready to use glitter. You can watch the video to see the steps. Here I am sharing the images of these magical and oh so cool seashell & Conch candles.

Dining Room Makeover With Wall Art 3D Wall Panels

I had been planning to give a makeover to my dining area since a long time. 
Though I love how airy and bright this space is but I really don't like how it lacks the interest. A few days ago I even asked for suggestions on my Instagram and got really wonderful replies and I thank each one of you for giving some interesting ideas. But this time I wanted something contemporary because I love to blend different decorating styles especially traditional Indian style with a modern twist. 

3D Wall Panels

That's when I got an e-mail from the Netherlands based brand called Wall Art and I was super excited to know that the brand offers a collection of 3D wall panels made of natural fibres. The panels are available in more than 24 designs that vary from industrial to romantic and modern. That's what I was looking for. Something that can add extra dimensions to the wall in my dining area and gives a contemporary feel to the space.Watch the video below to know how I transformed my dull and boring dining room into a spectacular and visually appealing space.


These panels are so versatile and other than installing them on an entire wall you can do so much with these panels. Paint them in the desired color or just use them as accent pieces on the wall. These can also be used as a wall art, paint the panels in two or more colors and put them up on the wall as art pieces. Install then on the wall and fix LED wall sconces or tealights in the centre of each panel to create a stunning ambience. 
Wall Art 3D panels are 100% natural (made of sugarcane fibres), eco-friendly, lightweight and super easy to install. You can install them yourself like I did. You'll be glad to know that these panels are scratch resistant and give a lustrous finish to any wall. You can check out some before and after images of my dining room below.

These 3D panels work like a wonder and give a rich background to the centrepieces I keep on my dining table. Panels are so dramatic that I don't need any artwork, wall shelf or any other accessories to accentuate the wall.

Wall Decor With 3D Wall Panels

All those who recently sent me messages asking about unique wall decor ideas here is an idea for you if you too love to blend contemporary and traditional style of decorating. You can explore all the designs on Wall Art website.
A big shout out to startup owners and entrepreneurs, Wall Art is looking for partnership in India so if you are interested, please contact me and I'll be happy to share the details. 

Hope you are enjoying newly added 'Crafts In A Jiffy' series on my YouTube channel. I am coming up with Diwali DIY & Decor videos really soon. Stay tuned!!

Home Tour: Anushikha Dwivedi

I have featured so many home tours here on my beloved blog 3D 
but never got a chance to meet all those wonderful home owners and lovely friends. But this time around the thing is different. I got an opportunity to meet the beautiful, charming, cheerful, vivacious, confident and a very warm person Anushikha Dwivedi who's been living just 4 KMs away from my place and I was not aware until she sent me some images of her gorgeous home after watching Rashmi Chandra's home tour on my YouTube channel. And let me tell you after meeting her I realized how true is the quote that "Your home is a reflection of where your heart is even when you are not there, There is an aura when you step into someone's home that can not be described." Dear folks, I bring to you the video tour of Anushikha's gorgeous, stunning, vibrant and happy place. Watch the video below. I really hope y'all like it!!


Anushikha loves to collect artifacts from various sources like art and craft fair/exhibitions, flea markets, handicraft stores &  from the places she visits. She loves to surround herself with the things she loves. If you love the artifacts you see in the above video and images in this blog then you can contact Anushikha as she runs an online business Anuvik that specializes in quirky & unique home decor items.


Anuvik (Anu+Vik) is founded by Anushikha & her husband Vikram. They both are passionate about arts & crafts. With the encouragement of their parents, friends & relatives they decided to combine their love for decorating and crafting into an online business. They went ahead with home decor items because nothing for them is more stimulating and inspiring than a lovely home. Some of the decor items are designed by creative artisans. Dreamy wall art, gorgeous votive holders, dhokra art, tribal musicians, chanderi silk curtains, ceramic spice jars & racks, anything that can spruce up your home a little bit.

The philosophy that Anushikha follows is "If you buy stuff you love, regardless of era and price. Your home will be a true reflection of you!!!"
Let's begin the tour. Below is the entryway to Anushikha's home that sets the tone for the rest of the home. Though you can see a burst of colors everywhere in the home but yellow, teal, fuchsia and peach play a major role in tying up the things together.

Below is the seating arrangement in her living room. Warm, cozy and so vibrant. All the decor accents collected from different sources over the years are displayed tastefully in every nook and corner of her home.

The other wall in the living room is painted in bright yellow and Anushikha has created a gallery wall to display artworks she bought from exhibitions, from differently abled kids and she also put up a photograph of Mumma bird feeding her babies clicked by her husband Vikram who just loves photography. 


A closer look at the seating arrangement in this area and I am completely in love with it.

The other side of the living room has this beautiful low seating arrangement with flowy curtains in the backdrop, beautiful artwork on the wall, elegant decor accessories placed right next to it. A place where one can relax, read book and forget about the world.

Foyer Makeover On A Budget

The foyer is the first place that guests see when they enter into a home. It is the first place that creates a lasting impression so it should be warm and welcoming. It should be a place with personality and functionality. That's what I did in recent foyer makeover project. Check out the video below to see all the steps involved in this makeover. 


Here is a before and after picture for you all. Though I liked the previous look too but there was no light and nothing no space to toss the keys and other stuff. Also, I got bored of the same look hence this makeover!! Let me tell you this foyer makeover didn't burn a hole in my pocket but the look and feel of entryway have changed entirely.

  Before                                                 After
Foyer Makeover On Budget

When I undertake any makeover project first I pay attention to the functionality of the space and then lighting and accessorizing. In this particular makeover, I changed the paint on the wall, Instead of artwork or mirror, I created clay work that is kind of permanent (until I decide to do makeover again) and to put some random stuff and decor accents I installed a beautifully carved wooden wall shelf. 
The total cost of this makeover is given in above video with the cost breakdown and all the links to buy products that I used in this makeover. 
Wall shelf can now serve as a center stage where I can display various decor accents and can change the look of this space effortlessly. Here are some more images to prove my point.

Foyer Makeover on budget

I chose glowing rust color for the wall. Bodhi tree or call it a tree of life has been created using air drying clay and tiny mirrors are serving as leaves. Turquoise Buddha bust pops beautifully against glowing rust wall and greens just add the cheer here. 


I am happy with the end result and really looking forward to knowing what do you all feel about this makeover. 
There will be a talented guest on 3D in my next blog so stay tuned!!
