        • Different Coloured Rangoli Powder

          Do not forget the white Rangoli Powder so as to draw the outlines of the Diwali rangoli design. You can easily get them online shopping sites such as Amazon.com.

          You can choose different flowers for different colors of petals such as Marigold petals(Yellow+Brown), Rose petals, etc. These will make the Diwali rangoli design more lively, fresh, and fragrant.
        • Coloured Rice/Sand(optional)
          If you do not have either rangoli powder or the flower petals, there’s the easiest way to fill your rangoli. It is coloring the rice/flour/sand in whichever color you want. And there you go.
      • Tips for colors
        You can find many color materials at your home as well if you could not arrange the other stuff mentioned above such as you can use turmeric for the yellow color, indigo powder for the blue color, flour for white color, leaves for the green color, and so on.

  1. Props used
    Now while drawing or filling colors, you may not be able to put it in place properly by your hands if you are a beginner or bad at drawing. So here are some smart tips for you to save time as well as draw the perfect designs easily-

    • Bangles/Circular object(of different sizes)
      These props will help you draw a perfectly round shape. As most of the rangoli designs contain circular shapes, this trick will help you a lot. You just need to draw/pour colors alongside their periphery. Similarly, you can take different shapes of objects to draw different designs.
    • Pop Sticks
      Arranging pop sticks in different shapes by joining them for your Diwali Rangoli Designs will also help to draw and fill colors easily and perfectly. After pouring colors, gently remove the sticks from there.
    • Paper Cones/sieve(to pour colors)
      You can use paper/plastic cones to pour drops for your designs or making the color outlines perfectly without ruining the other part of the rangoli. Similarly, the sieve can be used to fill the middle part of the rangoli designs and gives a uniform look.
    • Eraser(Must)
      While we talk about drawing and filling the Diwali rangoli designs, we should always keep in mind that colors won’t perform always according to your plans and there are chances that the colors will spread here and there. To correct these mistakes you must ensure that you have the eraser to clean them up.

Now, that we have arranged almost all the required items, we would look over the next important factor for making Diwali rangoli designs i.e finding the perfect place. Let us have a look.

Find the perfect place

Usually, it’s the entrance of the houses but we need to keep some points in mind and make sure that-

  • there should enough place to draw a particular design
  • the rangoli should not disturb the walkway
  • there should not be any explosive materials or something that can catch fire around as the candles and Diyas would be there.

Now that you have found the perfect place for making your rangoli, you don’t have to wait for anything else and it’s time that you start making your rangoli. So our next section consists of steps to make your rangoli with a beautiful Diwali rangoli design.

Start drawing your Rangoli

Let’s go step by step to make sure that in the end, you get a beautiful rangoli in your home.

  1. Draw the structure
    As I have mentioned above, you can use either chalk, crayons, or marker to draw the structure of your Diwali rangoli design. Keep it in mind that you draw it with a gentle hand so that it doesn’t leave impressions if something goes wrong. When you are sure that the design is fine, darken it with chalk.
    It is suggested to practice the design in advance for few times either on paper or on the floor itself to make sure that you are able to draw the design effortlessly.
  2. Fill the rangoli 
    Start filling the rangoli with different colors or whatever you have arranged with the help of the sieve so that it gives a uniform look. Again keep it in mind that you start filling from the center and then go towards the outer area.  Don’t forget to keep your Diwali rangoli design with you so that you don’t miss the colors/design.
  3. Give Outline to your design
    When you complete filling the designs with colors, you need to draw the borders with white colored powder(can be any other, of your choice). This will pop up your Diwali rangoli design so much that you can see the difference clearly. If your design is somewhat larger, you can go ahead with drawing lines along with filling colors in your rangoli together.
  4. Decorate your rangoli
    You can see your rangoli is almost complete now and it’s time that you give it a final touch by adding the decorative materials you have arranged for it. So sprinkle the sparkle powder all over the rangoli in the shape. Put candles and Diyas to make it look more beautiful.

And that’s it. Your rangoli is ready. Show this to your family & friends and enjoy your Diwali.
