Place the big bangles at the centre - six are used in the centre.  Then two smaller bangles of different sizes to form six arms as shown in the image.  In the gaps I have used a small bangle between the arms.  Arrange the bangles as symmetrically as possible with the eyes.  Fill up the inner pattern with blue colour Then fill the other bangels with white, orange and green.  At the centre fill with white rangoli powder.

Next and most important step in this variety of rangoli is the removal of the bangles.  This is the only step where the rangoli has some degree of difficulty.  We have do it carefully .  It comes easily with practice.  Remove all of them.

Diwali rangoli border - simple and easy design

This border also uses the same technique that has been adopted in the previous rangoli.  Place the rangoli as far apart as required.  Now between the bangles draw curved lines.  Remove the bangles.  Decorate the curved lines with two cotton buds held together.

Draw a simple floral pattern at two points as shown to complete the border rangoli .  This can be used to decorate a bigger rangoli or the entrance .  We can place diyas as specific points to make the border even more beautiful to look at.
