Diwali is that time of year when markets get flooded with decorations. You could buy them or perhaps try and make them on your own.
All you need is:
1. Crepe paper or Glossy paper.
Step 1: Take a sheet of paper, nine inches square. Fold it diagonally into two. You will get a triangle like the one in the illustration.
Step 2: With the help of scissors, make cuts as shown in the figure. Remember to keep two things in mind:
* The cuts should not reach from one side to the other.
* You should make cuts in alternate directions.
Step 3: Now, open the sheet out flat and make a second one exactly like it but of a different colour.
Step 4: Stick the two sheets together by dabbing some adhesive on the corners.
Step 5: Now, gently draw out the paper by pulling at the centre of both sides.
You will have a nice chain. Make a dozen of these and you can hang them all over.
