Sustainable living is a smart choice so decorate homes in a similar fashion. And you can take it up a notch by gathering your social circles to hand paint diyas with natural dyes as a fun exercise. 

* Eye-catching isn't it, every time we spot a milk parlour or ice cream kiosk on the streets of our neighbourhood. In a similar fashion, you can incorporate a pop-up station at your lawn, courtyard or/and hall spaces. Plock-up a table or stand with crackers, accessories and home-made sweets, which everyone can gather around for a treat? This DIY (Do-It-Yourself) tip would certainly be one of a kind.
