Easy Indian Rangoli



About: Am craft lover . I love creating handmade gifts, DIY gifts and easy paper crafts. I make cooking and DIY crafts and share tutorials in myYoutube channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnj5UZH9t6C0yGa-8N...

Rangoli is made in courtyards to welcome Hindus deities and guests,on different occasions and festivals like Deepavali, Marriages, Pooja and many more.

Dotted Rangoli is design which is made by making dots forming lines in different shapes like square,circular,star. Later it is filled with beautiful colors and get a traditional design mostly made in south India.

Floral designs are different and at times, a little complex. Yet, they are very interesting. You can use many colors and even different flower petals to make it more artistic. You can get creative with the designs as you do not have to follow a fixed pattern. These designs are quite floral but also very romantic. It is a perfect blend of art and tradition.

You can also use these for your kids to join dots or color them :) :)

I have drawn Rangoli in note book to make it an easier version...
