Twirling DIY Paper Diya for kids


First cut a circle from the coloured chart paper of your choice. Fold the circle in two halves and the again fold it to make it a quarter piece. This paper diya is bit tricky in terms of pasting the sides correctly or it won’t give the desired look. It will also fail to twirl. So while pasting the sides of the quarter pieces be careful. You have to make 8 equal quarter pieces and paste them by sides to give the shape of a flower with a base . It can twirl if you keep it on a smooth surface. Cut a flame shape of yellow glittered paper or on a plain yellow chart paper and paste it in the middle of the diya.
