If you think of making rangoli at the last minute and don’t have time to buy colours, then worry not and head to your kitchen. Turmeric powder (yellow), powdered henna (green), wheat flour (white), cumin powder (brown), etc. can be brought to use.
For those of you who find it difficult to handle powders, use rice, wheat, mustard seeds, and other grains to give a different texture to your rangoli while allowing it to look equally aesthetic.
A rangoli made of flower petals not only looks beautiful, but also adds aroma to the ambience. Use petals of colourful flowers such as marigold, rose, chrysanthemum, and even leaves of mango tree.
Decorate your rangoli with earthen lamps. You can even add richness to your intricate pattern by placing an urli filled with floating candles in the centre, and making a rangoli around it.
