Diwali 2023: Tips and tricks to make easy, unique and colourful rangolis
Diwali 2023: Deepavali, the festival of lights, is around the corner. Each one of us eagerly waits for the Festival of Lights, Diwali which is celebrated on November 12 this year.
The auspicious festival of lights marks Lord Ram's return to Ayodhya after a 14-year exile. Diwali 2023 brings the grace of Maa Lakshmi, goddess of wealth and prosperity.
It is that time of the year again! If the beautifully lit oil lamps and lanterns bring hope and positivity, the vibrant and intricate rangoli patterns liven up the festive fervour. Just seeing a rangoli filled with different colours enhances the vibe of 'Diwali' and makes us realise that happy times are just around the corner.
Creating rangoli is considered a challenging and time-consuming task, but here we are with the solution.
One does not need to spend money on expensive art tools to create rangoli on Diwali 2023. With the help of kitchen utensils, one can easily create beautiful rangoli patterns. Plates and bottle caps act as the best go-to tools to make rangoli designs. If you want to make big circular designs, you can place the food plates on the floor and then use a pencil/pen to draw their circumference.
Use bangles to create smaller circles and then accordingly fill them with colours. Bottle caps can also be used to draw smaller circles.
Flowers undoubtedly add more colour to Diwali decorations. Not only to your home walls but you can also add a floral touch to your rangoli designs. And, if you are someone who is sometimes scratching their brains on how to make the best use of colours, you can always go with leaves or flowers especially marigolds.
Digital rangolis are also trending in today's time. For people who love working on computers, mobiles, digital rangolis work best for them.
Applying colours to your rangoli might be a difficult process as they can stick to your fingers. To avoid the colour spillage, one can use old glue bottles or ketchup bottles. All you have to do is fill those bottles with rangoli colours and cut the nozzle with a broad opening and use it like a pen to draw shapes.
Stencils come to the rescue of people who struggle to create rangoli designs on their own. From plastic stencils to wooden and paper stencils, different kinds of stencils are available in the markets.
You can also make colourful and unique looking rangolis with the help of kitchen ingredients -- flour, pulses and rice.
Happy Diwali 2023!
