Once done with cleaning and efficiently storing away things out of sight, the other thing that we all look forward to is decorating our spaces.

Another key or important decor element for festivals, a rangoli is sure to make your space look very festive and beautiful. You can make one with different colours or use flowers and flower petals to create one. We would suggest that to make things more exciting and different, you can try out some new and fun designs for the same. Add in tea lights, diyas & candles to make your rangoli Diwali ready! If you are short on time or aren’t used to making rangolis, then fret not as we have solutions for you as well. You can either buy rangoli stencils and use them to easily make rangolis or you can buy reusable decorative acrylic rangolis that you simply have to arrange and keep wherever you like!
