Yellow n’ Blue Re-arrangeable Kundan Rangoli

This tutorial explains how a re-arrangeable kundan rangoli can be made using OHP sheets as the base. These rangolis can be used to decorate your homes around the Navrathri and Diwali season.

Yellow Re-arrangeable Kundan Rangoli

How to make a re-arrangeable kundan rangoli:

Materials required:

  1. Transparent plastic sheets / OHP sheets (available in stationery stores)
  2. Bead ball chain (Gold color)
  3. Rhinestones (triple leaf shape stones in yellow color and round stones in blue)
  4. Dull gold beads
  5. Fabric glue
  6. Scissors

Step 1:

This rangoli would have a total of seven pieces which can be arranged as you’d like. We would be making six leaf shaped pieces and one hexagonal piece.

Draw a leaf  shaped outline on a sheet of paper.

The triple leaf rhinestones are then glued on in the pattern shown. As it can be seen, there is one rhinestone at the top and six at the bottom. The rhinestones at the bottom have been glued on one row after the other. The middle row has been glued on in an inverted fashion.
