Tea light holder / DIY Lamp

Hello Friends,

Here is one more Diwali special DIY project.

Supplies: Empty Juice or soda cans (washed and dried), a safety pin, pliers, scissors or cutter.


  • Draw any pattern onto soda can using marker.
  • Start punching using safety pin or some other sharp pin (Soda can is very light and can be easily punched using all pin /safety pin).

I had created a leaf pattern and a dragon pattern(on husband's suggestion J ) .

Once all punching is done, paint the cans (Two or Three coats will work well).

  • Some holes will be blocked by paint, so once it dries off, punch in blocked holes again.
  • Now using scissors or cutter, cut a rectangle behind the can so that you can put tea light into it.

  • Press its corners with Pliers.
  • Your homemade tea light holder/Lamp is ready.

Hope you liked it.
Will be back with more.. :)

DIY Gift box / Organizer

Gift Box / Organizer

Hey Friends,
Festival season has started and we are ready to distribute gifts and decorate our homes, right?

So, here is an idea to reuse your old boxes and containers. These can be reused as gift box or organizers themselves.

Required: Gift wrap or Fabric, A pair of scissors, Glue stick or Craft glue.

Steps :
  • Measure box dimensions (Here I’ve used an empty Surf Excel box for demonstration).
  • Cut Paper.
  • Apply glue to paper and paste it on box carefully.


Use as an organizer to declutter your stuff or you may use same as a cute gift box.
Here, I’ve used a shoe box (rectangular one) as an organizer, chips can as an organizer (used fabric to wrap this one), and Surf excel box as a gift box.

Hope you liked it. Will be back soon with more ideas.
