The Plate that I have used above was a Gift Pack of Nuts and Sweets distributed during Diwali. Start filling the empty space with your choice of colors making a pattern or a design. Draw an outline for the same with a darker color.

The Structure that I have drawn in the center is of Lord Ganesha. You should be able to get ample pictures on the Internet for yourself. Place a Diya on the right side and your Rangoli is ready to be placed anywhere in the house.

Much Love ,
