Wonderful rangoli desings

Hello everyone!

Diwali is just one day away (on 13th Nov.) and many Indians know the sheer importance of rangoli making on this auspicious occasion. Read a relevant post here. Yesterday I had been hunting for rangoli designs on the internet and apart from many usual designs, I found some interesting ones. There are many more verities in rangolis that you can make. I am gonna share my shortlisted designs too.

Sand or powder rangolis are very common yet famous among many households. These can be cleaned up very easily.There are paint rangolis as well. You can paint your ground with the desired pattern. This rangoli stays for many more days. There are some reusable rangolis too using beads, buttons, laces, pearls, stones etc. These kind of rangolis can be used again and again. Flower rangolis are made by flowers. They look beautiful and the entire pattern emerges at great extent. These rangolis also spread the flowery fragrance around. Candles and diyas are also an inseparable part of Diwali. They light up the place and epitomize the beauty of your house. There are many more diverse designs of candles and diyas in the market.

I am giving away some useful links on how to make rangolis and candles.
