A much needed idea for a fool proof, kid proof and long lasting rangoli.
For somebody who is very powder challenged, these serve the purpose very well.
Consider making floating flower rangoli's on a few days this festive season. They not only provide a contemporary twist to the good old traditional rangoli, they are portable and super simple to put together as well.
It does help tremendously that they can be made with very few flowers - Most of these here have been made with flowers that grow in the yard or the side of the road- and will last longer than the traditional powder/ flower rangoli too. ( I have to be really lucky to have any thing on floor level alive and put together even for a few minutes!!).
They are simple like the one in red and yellow below
Or slightly complex, with the red flower petal patterned edging
An abstract composition created with three colours, seems to attract attention of an entirely different kind.. as bees are drawn to the colour and water on the balcony !
Trying a different colour combinations.. Using petals instead of whole flowers with blooms like rose and marigolds, various complex patterns may be created. Although, I like to keep it simple and hassle free.
Yet another idea that uses very few flowers and takes seconds to put together..!
More coming up.. Watch this space.... until then happy floating !
