Rangoli’s add the colour to your festive decorations. Almost every Indian house sports these artful paintings, greeting you as you enter it. Though they look amazing, rangolis aren’t that easy to make. They require patience and a very steady hand. Not to mention a good taste of colours and designs. These designs can vary from abstract to images of deities to any other drawings including cartoons! While most rangolis use a large amount of colour sometimes people choose to make them out of a single colour like white or red. Black is used more rarely, since rangolis are used to mark the gaiety of festivals and black is the least auspicious of all colours! Here is a list of the fifteen best colorful rangoli designs.
