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.
How to make a re-arrangeable kundan rangoli:
- Transparent plastic sheets / OHP sheets (available in stationery stores)
- Bead ball chain (Gold color)
- Rhinestones (triple leaf shape stones in yellow color and round stones in blue)
- Dull gold beads
- Fabric glue
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.
Place the OHP sheet on top and cut it out along the outline drawn.
Apply fabric glue along the leaf outline.
Place a string of bead ball chain on the glue and allow it to dry.
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.
Glue on the bead ball chain like a triangle.
Next is a row of blue rhinestones.
…And an outline using bead ball chain.
The top part is now getting done…
The completed design.
Make a total of six such leaf shaped pieces following the steps explained above.
For the center of the rangoli, an octagonal piece is cut out.
Just like the other pieces, an outline is made out of bead ball chain after applying fabric glue.
The pattern shown below is made.
The center of the octagon has this kind of a star like structure. Dull gold beads have also been used here.

Alternatively, in place of the center piece, a lamp may be placed and the leaf shaped pieces can be set around it.
