Another simple and easy rangoli design with a sunflower. The use of bold white swatches makes it look extra neat.

Adding some symmetry to the line-up - what a colourful play of two imposing flowers interlinked with simple white stripes.

5. The Dainty Lotus

Not only are lotuses auspicious, but they also make for a great visual treat. We are absolutely loving the 3D effect created by using dual shades for the petals.

6. The Pink v/s Orange Dual

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Mixing it up with two different lotuses, one in pink and one in orange. The details and the symmetry for this kind of rangoli designs are bound to take some practice.

7. Feeling So Aquatic

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Adding a dash of blue to this lotus rangoli design is a great idea, because it immediately reminds one of a water body, the natural abode of lotuses.

8. Lines and Petals

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

This simple rangoli design has our heart. She made this using minimum colours (and techniques), and yet it is eye-catchy without being too hard on the work front.

9. Enmeshed Light

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

There is such a subtle charm to this one. Diyas and lotuses made with generous curves. This is one of our favourite rangoli designs owing to how soothing it is to the eyes.

10. Glow

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Some petals, some dots and a whole lot of precision. The band of a neutral zone within the rangoli design simplifies the look and gives some breathing space, both to the patterns and the viewer.

11. The Enchanted Rose

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Fan of beauty and the beast? Why not have this beautiful rangoli design with a blue rose motif at the entrance to the venue?

12. Ring of Flowers

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Another beautiful, yet simple specimen among rangoli designs. The petals used in this are simple enough for beginners to try and yet the end result is as breathtaking as any complicated one.

13. Royal Purple

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

If purple is your favourite colour, then this rangoli design will immediately become the number one choice to try out. The colours blend so beautifully together and the paisley and lotus motifs give this a charming look.

14. Flower, Gleam and Glow

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

This beautiful rangoli design is great if you’re going for a sombre design which focuses more on block colours for its appeal.

15. Rosy-fingered Dawn

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

This design starts off very easy but its real beauty comes with the mesh detailing of the outermost layer of this flower motif rangoli.

16. Hues of Elegance

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

The use of two shades in this rangoli design makes it look so vibrant and quirky that we are tempted to pick it off from our screen and paste it on our notebooks and/or laptops.

17. Not your Regular Rangoli

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

This kind of rangoli relies heavily on dots and meshes and it looks easier to make than it is. But if you want to go for a hatke look, then this is a good break from the circular/square shaped rangoli designs. 

B. Floral Rangoli Designs

A rangoli made out of flower petals is not just aesthetic to look at, it also spreads its fragrance throughout the venue. Bonus points- nothing works better than flowers while working around some elements such as lamps, posts or pillars. Check out these floral rangoli designs- 

18. Pots and Trinkets

3 Productions Wedding Planning

This entire venue is done up so beautifully with flowers but the centre of attraction is definitely the beautiful floral rangoli around the pot. The rangoli is made using entire flowers and thus doesn't take too much time to materialise.

19. Let it Swirl

PixelStory.in

Here's another great example of simple rangoli designs using entire strings of flowers. This type of work gives you the flexibility of creating complex shapes and patterns (though large in size) and to change and modify them at your will.

20. The Doormen

3 Productions Wedding Planning

When it comes to flower petals though, they bring a whole different kind of versatility to the table. Look at these beautiful rangoli designs unified in the form of a carpet to border the reception hall. In fact, we have earlier explored some exciting wedding reception ideas which incorporate flower petals.

21. Everywhere You See

Oh, we forgot to mention. Flower garlands don't just make for great circular rangoli designs but are also your best bet if you want to beautify the entire venue and much of its empty spaces.

22. Hello Sunshine!

3 Productions Wedding Planning

Floral rangoli designs around pots are used frequently and yet still, give spectacular results. Take for example this click-worthy work of art and marigolds.

23. Bright and Sunny

3 Productions Wedding Planning

If you're going to have your wedding ceremony in the outdoors, especially with such a huge relic-like decor, add a pop of colour to the surroundings with some flower petals and simple rangoli designs like this one. You can even evoke the sun and add a sundial to your decor.

24. Flowers will Guide You Home

And why just the venue of the main function? You can decorate all the pathways up to the place, so that the minute someone walks in, they know they've reached the right place.

25. Teardrops on My Stairway

3 Productions Wedding Planning

Talking about big empty spaces, outdoor weddings also seem to deal with a lot of stairways and such. Make sure they stand out too with basic rangoli designs such as this. 

C. The Devil is in the details- Geometric/Mandala Rangoli Designs

Geometric rangoli designs rely heavily on symmetry and precision, above everything else, to make the rangoli come out beautifully. The motifs can be simpler and not as elaborate, but the uniformity and the skill required to ace that final beauty is huge.

26. Of Shells and Petals

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

This rangoli design requires a cone, skills and a lot of patience. The shading here might not be as easy to achieve in the first few tries so don't lose heart.

27. Light and Life

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

Bringing together diyas, flowers and a lot of colours, this rangoli design is bound to be a hit with your guests.

28. Bright and Beautiful

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

A slight variation to the previous one, in this rangoli design, the focus immediately goes to the bold colours and the glow of the lamps.

29. Therapeutic Work of Art

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

This swirling design can be aced in a couple of stints if your sense of symmetry is bang on. Just looking at these perfect swirls is so satisfying, imagine making them and watching them materialise right in front of your eyes.

30. Blooms and Petals

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

A comparatively easier design once you've mastered the art of using rangoli cones. It is nonetheless pleasing and soothing.

31. It Takes Two (Colours) to Tango

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

This design is equal parts easy-to-make and tough as nails. Starts out simple and clean, then advances to very precision-based technique and then back to easy designs. The play with dual shades is what gives these rangoli patterns an edge over others.

32. I Got the Flower!

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

This rangoli design plays beautifully with the different shades within every petal. For beginners, you can try replicating this flower with just one primary colour and its shades.

33. Interconnected

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

You might need a compass for this one. The interlinked circles are a very popular motif in rangoli designs and we can clearly see why.

34. The Swirls on the Floor go Round and Round

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

Swirl and flick. This design catches your eye with the swirls on the outermost layer, but the inner circle is the one that makes you say wow. Simple, elegant, on point.

35. The Trickiest of Them All 

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

A more complicated version of the swirl and flick. This rangoli design brings together so many technical elements- swirls, dots and shading. Master them individually and you will definitely steal the thunder at the first Diwali in your new home.

36. The Mandala Motifs

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

The five-pointed leaf is a very popular motif in mandalas and comes out beautifully in rangoli designs too.

37. The Star of the Show

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

Start with the star at the centre and then swirl your way to victory around it. This is a petite but powerful design.

38. Started from a Simple Flower, Now We Here

The detailing and the shading on this one will definitely take a trained hand.

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

A simple, soft rangoli design. The marigold garland gives it a 3D effect and we're loving it.

40. Jalebis and Assorted Sweets

A very smooth, yet interesting rangoli design, especially for beginners to try.

41. Best of Both Worlds

This rangoli design manages to give a vibe of minimalist yet detailed work, all at once.

42. Whirls of Glory

Get creative with your rangoli designs and use everyday items such as bangles to make your work easier, fun and beautiful. This one is a #rangolihack right there.

44. Shades and Circles

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

The domes and petals are great, but what really caught our eye was the detailing in the middle layer. Look how beautiful purple and black merge.

45. The Patchwork Magic

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

The centre circle is a riot of colours whereas surrounding it is a serene white. Brilliant idea for rangoli designs, isn't it?

46. The Power of Dots

So much is going on in this rangoli design and we are awed by it all.

47. String of Roses

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

This half rangoli design is easy to make, and sure to please.

48. Colourful Shadows

This one plays with just a couple of basic rangoli motifs, combined with a clever use of shadows - and yet the end result is so endearing.

49. Peek-a-boo

This is a great example of geometric rangoli designs. The square, though not visible, is ever present.

50. Strung Together 

Image Courtesy: Blissful Stuff

This spectacular rangoli design is achieved using minimal lines and dots.

51. Highs and Lows

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

The block shades of pink and blue would be great if you're going for an overarching colour scheme.

52. A Colourful Affair

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Even as you ogle at the colourful centre motif, the simple white mesh in the background gives it a neat and put-together look that's hard to achieve.

53. The White Teardrops

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

In the beginning, this might look like fairly simple rangoli design but don’t be fooled at the primary colours in the centre. The real hard work is in the white meshwork, which has come out beautifully.

54. A 2D Floral Garland

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

The Paisley motif takes centre stage in this breathtaking rangoli design. Even the combination of soft yellow and orange with green has worked out very well.

55. Layers of Beauty

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Domes, Paisleys and leaves. If this rangoli design gets too complicated to execute, definitely consider this as the mehndi design for the back of your hand.

56. The Pink Panther

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

A simple rangoli design which becomes spectacular with repetition and precision. This is a great design for beginners to get their bearing and yet steal the show.

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

This rangoli design relies quite a bit on dots and the end result is fantastic. Another great design to start with.

58. An Oriental Daydream

The concentric circles, embellished with domes and arches, give a royal look to this rangoli and the mustard colour is really pulling this off.

59. Cue Simplicity

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

A simple design which becomes accentuated with the use of white. When it comes to rangoli designs, we feel white is quite an understated, but powerful element.

60. Cue Happiness

Ah! Such pretty colours and marigold petals on this one. This rangoli design is definitely a must-have for a mehndi function.

61. Water Lilies and Crescents

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

A combination of moons and lotuses, this rangoli design is definitely something which is not seen often. Notice the alternate shade of green in the moon shaped petals, you might have missed it in the first glance but it works wonders for the look.

62. Hello Spring!

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

This easy rangoli design relies heavily on semi-circles, a motif which is both easy to make and lovely to look at. The colour scheme is the real show stealer.

63. (amper)Sands of Time

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

For the queen of hearts, this rangoli design is a must have at one of the wedding ceremonies for sure.

64. Fool me Once

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Another favourite owing to the sheer brilliance of simplicity and colour combination. At first glance, it seems like one of the fairly complex rangoli designs but a closer look would reveal that the shapes are not that complicated and work great together.

65. Bakes and Beautiful

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Just in case you have a sweet tooth and want to pay homage to all things baked and sweet, we have just the rangoli design for you. Try this French-heart rangoli and only let a chosen few into the secret.

66. Inside the Box

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

When on the topic of geometric rangoli designs, the square is also a very prevalent base structure. The four pointed Diyas at the corner, complemented with the real thing is the main eye catcher.

67. Doodles and Daisies

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

This rangoli design reminds us of all the doodling done at the back of school notebooks. The flowers and the swirls in the centre have a simple, and sweet charm.

68. Pretty in Pink

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Loving the interplay of purple with pink and blue. A perfect example of rangoli designs which require 2-4 colours and come out as detailed works of art.

69. Playful Paisleys

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

The main focus of this rangoli design is the Paisley (or the tear-drop) motif. But look at the amount of variety which can be achieved with just one basic shape.

70. Flowers and Friends

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Paisleys and hearts. This rangoli design manages to bring together a free-form look along with the confinement of boundaries, without either imposing on the other.

71. A Study in Scarlet

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

This concentric beauty must have taken quite some hours to come out so beautifully. These are the kind of rangoli designs you daydream onto paper a million times before actually making them on the floor.

72. It's a (s)Teal

This ornate rangoli design is a great idea if you want to do something different and aesthetic. Teal isn't often seen in rangoli and even more rarely as the prime colour. The black patterns are giving it a wrought iron look which is surprisingly refreshing.

73. Here for The Rounds

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Simple shapes repeated often enough and made with the use of vibrant colours, makes this rangoli pattern a great idea for puja rangoli designs.

74. Flora and Kolam

These huge flowers serve a dual purpose. The marigold like petals and the bold colours with neat concentric circles make for the perfect backdrop for all the festivities.

75. Did Someone Order Bright?

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Loving the colours on this one. This simple rangoli design is especially appealing because of how it plays with easy-to-make shapes to make such a unique pattern.

76. Mirage of Meshes

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

This simple rangoli design can be done in record time once you've mastered your circles and your mesh. The only rangoli pattern that might take a bit of getting used to, is the lotus.

77. Stripes and Shades

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

This striking rangoli design plays with basic shapes and stripes which add a whole other layer to the design without making it extremely complicated to make.

78. A Beautiful Tyranny of Triangles

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

The use of stripes in the previous rangoli design made us think of one which is purely lines and stripes. These concentric triangles merge well within each other, making for a simple and elegant rangoli design.

79. Colour me Happy!

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

The single most endearing thing about this rangoli design is the cheerful colours and bold outlines which gives it a favourable buoyancy and crowd-pleasing appearance.

80. In the Middle of Mesh- I

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Simple designs and patterns can work great if you know what you are doing. This rangoli design relies heavily on diyas and meshwork and makes for one helluva good entrance rangoli.

81. In the Middle of Mesh- II

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

If the previous rangoli pattern was a bit too simple for your taste, try this slightly more complex rendition of the same basic design.

82. Heart of the Matter

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Vibrant and lively use of bright colours and heart-shaped motifs. This rangoli design is good enough to paint on permanently.

83. Crystal Clear

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

The simplicity of this rangoli design is what makes it so beautiful. Neat lines, and the excellent use of empty spaces to make the floor a part of the design, a clever and useful technique indeed.

D. Dual Toned Rangoli Designs

Using geometric shapes and patterns you can go for a variety of combinations for spectacular rangoli designs. One particular kind that we are drooling on right now is minimalist designs made using only 2 colours with intricate lines and shapes as opposed to fill-in colours. Have a look-

84. Tantalizing Teal

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

Teal and white make for a perfect combination. The central pattern is a simple flower which branches out to different designs. This design, though not as symmetrical as we've been seeing but just as appealing.

85. Sunny Yellows

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

This is a brilliant rangoli design which uses yellow selectively while white does all the work. And yet the overall look is brought out by the dual tones equally.

86. Signature Whites

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

This rangoli design only uses one colour and the additional hues are added by outside elements such as the diyas' light and the floor itself.

87. Hues of Blue

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

This unique rangoli design uses a couple of shades of blue to make some unusual rangoli patterns and the whole look is accentuated with the subtle yet intricate white.

88. Pink Delight

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

The pink and the white fuse together in this playful dance of swirls and paisley patterns. The leaves connecting the rangoli pattern together are simple to make and beautiful to look at as well.

89. Blooming Blues

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

The thing we love the most in this rangoli design is how the diya's light adds a faint pink glow to this design made using only blue and white. Also, notice the precision and execution of the pattern.

90. Fiery Red

Image Courtesy: Shanthi Sridharan Kolam

The colour red spells out festivities and joy like none other. Make it the centre of attention with this intricate rangoli design.

E. Signia of Royalty: The Peacock

Another frequent motif in Rangoli designs is the most gorgeous birds of all- The peacock. Peacocks are considered auspicious and hence the motif is widespread in all the regalia of weddings, from your mehndi design to the rangoli. Keep browsing for some stunning peacock rangoli patterns-

91. Centre Stage

We love this rangoli design for its sheer simplicity. Made using only rice flour the rangoli pattern stands out owing to the flower garland all around it.
