Here are some basic instruction on how to make your own Rangoli:

How to make your own Rangoli:

  • Choose a design that you would like to create. Rangoli patterns are typically geometric and symmetrical. If this is your first time creating, a simple design works best.
  • Choose the area where you would like to create your design. It is best placed by the entrance to your home, but not blocking so that people can easily walk around it. Clean the place on the floor thoroughly and let it dry.
  • Use a piece of chalk to mark the center point of the Rangoli, and then draw the outline of your design with the chalk.
  • Decide about the color scheme and the items you will use to fill your design.
  • Fill in your design using the items you have chosen. It is best to start from the inner part of the design and work your way out. To fill in the design, pick up some powder, rice, etc, with your thumb and index finger. Then rub your two fingers together to carefully sprinkle the powder on the floor.
