one of my favorite festivals.I love to dress up my house .Normally I start
preparing and collecting things much before the festival.This year we shall be
celebrating Diwali in New York with some cousins. But what happens to my
rangoli? I decided to do a rangoli which
can be prefabricated . I have packed this rangoli and shall use it there.
has been made on a MDF. MDF is medium density board which is easily available
in the market.I roughly decided on a design and got my pieces cut.I choose to
make a center piece, some small circles , some big circles , paisleys and some
leaves.I got these cut on a lazer machine to get neat cuts.I used white acrylic
paint for the first coat .The second coat was with pearl white acyrilic
color.This gave it a sheen.
Once these pieces
dried I used pearls, blings and sparkle to decorate these pieces.I used fabric
glue to stick these.
I just did a
some quick set ups with the same pieces.One can do so much more with them.Once
the festival is over, just pack and reuse them as and when required.
I have made
floating rangolis too on the same pattern.For these I have used an OHP sheet.This
is easily available at any stationery shop.The procedure to make these floating
rangolis is here.

These just need to be placed in a wide pot full of water.You could add some floating candles to enliven it.
Once again wishing all my friends a very Happy Diwali !!
