32 Encouraging Rangoli Designs

Have you ever tried your hand at rangoli? If you have not, you probably should. It is a colorful presentation of designs and often symmetrical patterns that can make anyone fall in love with its sight. Ignoring the typical assumption of rangoli being a component of just festivals and celebrations, you can try it any fine day to bring out your imaginative designs and make your day colorful. Here are a few rangoli designs you can try in your home and see for yourself.

The most striking feature of rangolis is the vast multitude of colors they use. Also, you can use an almost unlimited number of shapes and patterns to make your rangoli a great one. If you have any creative designs, add them and try to refine them with experience as much as you can. Subtle colors are as much attractive as bright ones if applied at the right spot. Adding candles, flowers and other creative components will definitely boost the beauty. As for the spot, a living room or the front entrance of your house is an incredible place for a rangoli. Regardless of what many people might think, rangoli is not something pretty easy. It is simple, of course, but to bring yourself to an adequate level of perfection you really have to develop a considerable level of control over your fingers and palms. Also, it requires a lot of patience and focus. So brace up your hands, find some good designs, and give yourself a try in the world of colors.
