How to Make Candle Stand

While Deepawali vacations were just around the corner, I thought of utilizing the time by trying my hand on digital marketing. It was a great learning and joyous experience for me. I not only study about digital marketing but also tried my hands at some creative art and craft activities. On the occasion of Diwali, we thought of celebrating the same by decorating the entire campus. I took part in the same and came up with a unique idea of mine to make some candles using newspaper, which will be recyclable and will be of no harm to the environment.
