The festival of lights is inseparable from Rangoli designs in our country. Rangolis are considered propitious and are believd to bring good fortune. In South India rangolis are designed daily but in northern parts, we ususally make rangolis on festivals.
Diwali decorations always have rangoli designs. I used to make rangoli every year before I got married. Now we have bought a few stencils and powder-colours which are used by Mr. Husband to make rangolis on Diwali
If you also want to make a rangoli at your home then these designs can come handy to inspire you. I have tried to include easy designs so that everyone can let their creativity out.

Floral rangolis are beautiful and will also keep your home fragrant. For this design, you don’t even need to break many flowers into petals. Just colour-coordinate some flowers and arrange them as you like.
