Rangoli Design Stencils

The joy of making the celebration memorable, one of the ideas is to celebrate it with participation of others. They could be your family members or friends. During Diwali and other such occasions, Rangoli is one such way to bring people together. We know some folks, who wait for this time so that they can collectively sit and take long hours to design. We can look for shortcuts, at times, when we really want to save time. That is where Rangoli Design Stencils come into picture.

Rangoli is a traditional or folk art of India, which is generally created on the floor on some festive occasions. The Indian Scriptures and Puranas can be attributed for the emergence of this Creative Rangoli art.

Rangoli is an expression of the creative self, often viewed as a form of self-portraiture. Designs are composed of geometric and curvilinear patterns, usually derived from nature.

After the Rangoli is complete, the image is simply allowed to blow away with the wind – serving as a metaphor for the impermanence of life.

Rangoli is created and used in all festivals like Diwali, Navratri, Dussera, Janmastmi and many other occasions like marriages and functions.

Rangoli is a popular art practiced across India and called by different names such as Kolam in South India, Mandana in Rajasthan, Chowk purana in North India and Aripana in Bihar. Rangoli is an art that uses color powder to decorate home entrances and different corners of the home to enhance the festive look of the home.

Decorations for Festivals and beautiful rangoli designs go hand in hand.. Rangoli is basically, design pattern drawn on ground. Making a rangoli though is no easy task, if you are not good at it then no matter how hard you try, you will not be able to get the beautiful colors in place, and the whole rangoli will have a messed up look.
