Picking the right flowers

The first step when it comes to answering how to make flower rangoli lies in your careful choice of flowers. Not all blooms make the cut as you are looking for petals that will give you volume enough to make your designs a reality.

Choose flowers that are readily available, vibrant in colour and okay on aroma (you do not want it to be absolutely overpowering). Consider the following as they make the cut on all three conditions -

1. Marigolds - White, Yellow, Orange

2. Roses - Reds and Maroons (though you can try different shades and colours as well)

3. Jasmine, daisies - White

The rest of it depends on what all colours you would want for your rangoli, in which case you can choose the flowers based on the required colours.

Plan, design and lay it out

3 Productions

The next step in how to make a flower rangoli is all about planning it right. Here is how you can get it to your ideal decoration design. 

1. Location, location, location

Start off by choosing a suitable location to set up the flower rangoli. You need to look for a spot where there is ample space, it is very visible but not a spot where your rangoli can be stepped on or be ruined by children.

2. Sketch it out

It's always advisable to come up with a rough sketch of your design before you begin laying it out with petals. Do it twice - once on a paper or a tab and the next time with a pencil or chalk at your desired location.

Do this especially if you're a newbie, Googling how to make flower rangoli with one hand and laying it out with the other.

3. Fill it in

Now, pick your plate of petals and begin to fill your design in. Cover the design with flowers and be careful with the edges.

Fill in the details at the end. Remember, floral rangoli designs will not always be exact in nature, but their rough edges will still entice hearts.

4. Be mindful of the time

This little detail is often not part of tutorials on how to make flower rangoli, but it is equally important, especially if you're a bridesmaid or even the bride-to-be.

Making a flower rangoli is very simple but it takes time. The number of hours it will take totally depends on two things - the size of the rangoli and the intricacy of the design. If it is a small-ish simple design then you might get done within an hour, but if it a big one with tiny details then you will take longer.

It still takes lesser time than a traditional rangoli design with colours or rice, as it's still rougher and flowers take up space much faster. So, plan your rangoli when you have ample time on your hands or delegate it someone who has it.
