Paper Cup Diwali Decor – Kids Craft

Around Diwali time, kids are enthusiastic to play with colors and make something that they can proudly show everyone. This is a Diwali decor that kids (ages 7+) can make using primarily paper cups, colors and gold color sparkle glue. Minimal adult supervision would be required. This decor piece is good as a year around doorway hanging too.

How to Make Paper Cup Mango Leaves Diwali Decor:

Step 1:

Take a paper cup of at least 3.5″ height.

PCLD1Step 2:

Cut off the rim of the paper cup.

PCLD2Step 3:

Make cuts in the cup to get this kind of a hanging leaves structure. Since mango leaves are considered auspicious, we are attempting to make a mango leaves with chimes decor.

PCLD3Step 4:

Paint with green acrylic or poster or water colors. Allow the paint to dry. The paint on the inside can be a lighter shade.

PCLD4Step 5:

The top is painted using brown color paint.

PCLD5Step 6:

After the paint is dry, a leaf like outline is drawn with sparkle glue of a suitable color.

PCLD6Step 7:

A golden zari lace about half an inch wide is glued on at the top.


Step 8:

Small mirrors or sequins can then be glued on the zari for a more decorative and festive look.

PCLD8Step 9:

A hole is made at the top of the cup, a thick thread is inserted from the top and knots are made at both sides of the hole to hold the cup in place.

PCLD9Step 10:

We make a few more such decorative cups. In the same way as above, the thread is inserted in each cup and they are all tied together.

PCLD10Step 11:

At the end of the rope (after the last cup in the row), a small bell is tied.
