Delhi: Diwali is just around the corner and to mark the occasion, this year, skip the usual powder colour or flower rangolis and instead experiment with paper rangolis.
These paper rangolis can be placed on the floor, as a decorative element for ceremonies or celebrations. The rangolis are hand-cut and assembled from layers of paper; they are light and portable as well.
Tips to make a paper rangoli:
- For this you will need a piece of paper large enough to allow some intricacy, but not so large as to turn your Rangoli into an overly long project.
- Decide what kind of design you want. You can search online for designs, or look for a library book on Indian crafts.
- Sketch the design on paper with a pencil. Remember to sketch lightly so that you can erase if needed.
- When you are done with your design, finalize the outline using white chalk. Fill in your design with coloured chalk. Use many bright and fun colours as you like.
- Display it proudly and keep it somewhere where many people can see it. You can also use lamps, candles, flowers to decorate it further.
