For some time now, we’ve been seeing different kundan rangoli designs made on wooden bases. This rangoli here is made on a transparent sheet. It is designed such that it can be set around a puja lamp. This is a single piece rangoli and does not need to be assembled. Contrasting color stones in blue and orange have been used.
How to make a Kundan Rangoli:
Take a transparent plastic sheet. An OHP sheet (available in stationery stores) has been used for making this rangoli. Start by drawing a circle of diameter 7 inches on a transparent sheet.
Cut along the outline.
Now draw a smaller circle at the center.
Cut along the inner circle to make a broad ring like structure. The inner circle cut is not a must but it is better this way because we generally use an oil lamp for puja and the lamp could get heated. This way, the lamp can be set at the center and the heat will not affect the rangoli.
Along the outline, set dull gold beads which are flat on one side making the gluing on easier.
Fevicryl Fabric glue has been used for this project – other glue don’t seem to work on plastic sheets.
As shown here, the beads are glued on at equal distance from each other.
Next to the gold beads, big blue rhinestones are glued on.
Teardrop shaped rhinestones in orange color have been set in a flower like shape.
Along the outline of the inner ring, dull gold beads have been set like a ring.
Big white rhinestones form the next ring close to the beads.
Small blue rhinestones are set on top of each white rhinestone.
Leaf shaped gold sequins are glued on between two flowers
Let the glue dry and here is the completed kundan rangoli.
Place it around a suitable lamp or idol for adding a nice auspicious look to your puja room.
