Diwali 2021: Looking For Some Rangoli Inspiration? Check Out These 4 Ideas!
Diwali is all about playing cards, having Diwali parties, donning Indian attires and munching on our favourite sweets, right? Wait, something is missing! Well, it’s rangoli! After a long period of cleaning that goes on before Diwali, we all start decorating our homes, and rangoli is the most important aspect of that decoration.
Though we make rangolis to make our home look prettier and beautiful, rangolis are also a way of welcoming Hindu deities into our new and clean house. Rangolis makes your whole decor look more elegant, and it’s the best way to extend a warm reception to Goddess Lakshmi.
Looking for some rangoli inspiration? Check out these 4 simple yet elegant rangoli ideas:
Flowers and leaves rangoli
One of the most unique and easy ways of making a rangoli is to ditch the conventional route of colours and go for flowers and leaves. By using flowers and leaves, you will be able to create eco-friendly rangoli. You can choose flowers of different colours to add the perfect contrast!
You might think, how can one use mirrors to make rangoli. Well, the idea might sound weird but once curated, it looks divine and stunning. All you have to do is pick a rangoli pattern, head to your local stationery shops to get mirrors of different sizes and shapes. Fill up the gaps with colours, or you can also go for glass painting, finish the rangoli with diyas.
Diwali is the festival of light, and what’s a Diwali without diyas? Ayodhya welcomed God Ram with diyas, and you can do the same to welcome Goddess Lakshmi in your house. The best thing about using diyas is that you can make a huge difference in your rangoli just by adding beautiful diyas.
No matter what, the conventional way of rangoli is still one of the best ones. You can easily create a lot of different rangolis with colours, for example, multicolour rangoli, monochrome rangoli etc. Make sure to first draw a layout and then fill in the colours.
