Diwali Rangoli Designs 2019 Images, Photos, Pictures, Pics: Diwali is known as the festival of lights. However, colours also play a big role in this much-awaited annual festival. During this time of the year, many people get their houses painted to ward off negative energies. They decorate it with torans, flowers and other beautiful decor items. Many people also make rangoli designs to welcome Goddess Lakshmi and Ganesha into their homes.
Rangoli making is a timeless tradition that is followed across the country. It is also known as Alpana, aripoma, or kolam. A rangoli is usually made up of geometrical structures that are symmetrical. The design patterns often consist of natural elements like animals, flowers, etc. In many cases, designs are passed down through generations with some of them being hundreds of years old.
The word ‘rangoli’ is said to have been derived from the words ‘rang’ and ‘aavalli’ which refers to a row of colours.
Making a rangoli can sound daunting, but is not so. In case you are looking for some rangoli inspiration, then we got you covered. If you are worried of spilling, use paper cone molds or mehendi cones to fill in the colours accurately, so you do not have to worry about them spreading outside the lines. In fact, an easier and better way is to replace colours with flower petals and coloured rice grains. Think of all the mess you will avoid. Also, it is easier to make a rangoli with flower petals than colours.
If you are someone who is super lazy about making a rangoli then all you have to do is strategically place a bunch of flower petals and a few floating candles in a big bowl of water and, voila, your rangoli is ready!
