November 3, 2013: Diwali, the Festival of Lights that symbolizes the lifting of spiritual darkness. Meaning "an array of lamps," Diwali is celebrated by Hindus around the world with the lighting of diyas, small clay pots containing oil and cotton wicks that are lit. It is the celebration of wealth and prosperity, the new year, and the triumph of good and evil. // #autumn #diwali #india
the sliver diya part will be a red/gold/black painted clay diya. The vinayak on top will actually be replaced with an invitation holder, and the invitation will sit in that. The invation holder will somehow have to be molded into a wet clay diya or hot glued to the back of a painted diya.
