Well, aren’t we all excited since our favorite festival is approaching soon. Let me give you a hint, this festival brings light into our lives.

Another major part of Diwali is Rangoli, so we present you with some simple yet mesmerizing rangoli designs that one must try in 2020.
1. Dotted rangoli
Dotted rangoli is probably one of the easiest yet classic rangoli style. All you have to do is use a stencil to put the dots on the floor. And then join them according to the design you wish to create. All you have to do is carefully join the dots. Once you are done, creating an outline, don’t forget to erase the extra dots. Also, try drawing the outline with white rangoli powder, and then you may fill the outline with any color you desire.
2. Flower rangoli
Flower rangoli is an ideal option for those who don’t have the patience to fill the intricate designs of the rangoli. This one is actually very simple and, is considered to be a traditional form of rangoli in India. All you need to do is trace out the design you wish to create with the help of chalk, and now fill it by either using flowers or flower petals. You may even use some leaves to add more color to it.
3. Sanskar Bharti rangoli
Sanskar Bharti rangoli is my personal favorite because it is just absolutely stunning, and it brings out the true authenticity of the festival. Most of the people seem scared to create this one due to its intricate detailing. But you can even draw simpler options, which are equally beautiful. It has originated from Maharashtra and, this style is named so, due to the design and pattern which, is made with any circles that represent Sanskar of India. Traditional rangolis were always round in shape, but due to new trends, people now seem to draw other geometric shapes too.

Peacock rangoli as the name suggests is creating a peacock. Well, this isn’t any ordinary peacock that you have to draw. There is a variety of designs that one can draw here that will easily whoo people passing by. There is the freehand style, which is not that complicated to create. Just draw a peacock with huge feathers and then incorporate any design of your choice into the feathers.
5. Diya Rangoli
Diya rangoli is very similar to peacock rangoli. Here you have to make a huge Diya, which you have to then layers with different designs. These a very popular form of rangoli during Diwali since the image of Diya perfectly matches the Diwali theme. You can change the size of Diya according to your convenience, you dont necessarily have to make a huge one. A small Diya with a couple of layered deign will too do a pretty well job for you.
