Since this post is about rangoli video for Diwali decoration, first the video from my YouTube Channel Rangolisansdots ( which is primarily about rangoli or kolam ) . Of course there is an occasional recipe, festival related information and crafts.
Please watch the video or you can learn the rangoli through the step by step ideas given by the images.
The gaps created among any three disks is filled with blue color to get a triangle like formation ( it is formed with curved lines and hence triangle-like ).
Place bullets with green colour outside the outer CDs so that a pair of opposite dots or bullets and the orange dots at the centre are all in a straight line. This will ensure that there is near perfect symmetry when the rangoli develops. This has to be done visually only.
This is the most tricky part in an other wise easy rangoli. Gently remove the disks without disturbing the rangoli patterns. Remove them one by one and stack them nearby.
This is the pattern that has been created so far. Now around the orange bullets are dots place bangles so that the dot is at the centre of the circle formed by the bangles. Fill the space with pink colour.
After filling remove all the bangles and then using a cotton bud draw straight lines radially from the centre , sixteen such lines are drawn.
The lines are further extended at an angle to give a beautiful effect to get a flower design as shown.
This is probably on of the best rangoli designs that can be created with cotton buds. It is quick , simple but gives a beautiful effect due to the technique used.
Similarly the central dot also has a bangle and filled with yellow rangoli as shown in the pic below.
The green bullets are converted into five short lines one straight and the four inclined on either side of the straight line. This may be thought of to represent the calyx of the flower. Earlier, the blue traingles are decorated with white dots as shown.
This simple rangoli for Diwali festival is ready . Show to your friends and relatives and earn their praise . Awesome idea is it not.
Arrange a pair of bangles , small and big so that they are concentric

This is a mini stencil for getting various patterns . I purchased this small stencil in Tiruchanur the abode of Goddess Padmavathi consort of Lord Venkateswara of Tirumala.
Fill it with colours and spread evenly with the fingers to get a good impression
