The previous kundan diya tutorial evoked a good response and I was asked to add a few more such designs… So here goes – a floating kundan diya made using different materials in shades of green. As always, a tutorial follows!

Step 1:

Cut out the craft foam in the shape of a ring. For clear steps on this, check out this link. The hole at the center should be cut out such that a tea-light candle fits in well.

Step 2:

We first start by gluing on a ring of flat back pearls. I’ve used fabric glue for this project.

Step 3:

We next glue on a few dull gold (small) beads between two pearl ones as shown.

Step 4:

A ring of bigger round rhinestones in dark green color are glued on. The rings of beads aren’t glued too close as can be seen.

Step 5:

For a change, have used square shaped rhinestones for this project to make a different design (similar to a pookalam design).

Step 6:

Followed by one more ring of square rhinestones in a darker green shade and this completes the rings for the kundan diya.
