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.
