Rangolis are a very common sight during the festive season. They play an integral part in Indian festive celebrations and their shape and colours vary from region to region.

In our previous post, we gave you some nice and colourful Rangoli patterns which are sure to fetch you a lot of compliments and I am sure you loved them. But don’t you think it’s unfair to show you just the colourful ones? Rangolis are also beautiful when they are monochrome. We love how one can create innumerable monochrome designs of Rangoli using dots.

So we bring you some Rangolis which are created by just connecting the dots. Some of these designs are easy and some are a little difficult to do, but can be done with a little patience and hard work nonetheless. So if this is your first time, do not fret we have some simple designs for you too.  You also have a choice to keep the designs monochrome or use colours over it. So just enjoy making Rangolis and let the compliments flow your way.

There are twelve similar looking Sankha’s with six of them forming a flower rangoli pattern and the others a circle around the flower.

      you may use a diamond/barfi shaped dot grid for it. If you want a small rangoli don’t go further than 20 dots in the middle. For a more larger pattern use as many numbered dots you like.
