Cd rangoli design for Diwali
Cd craft using old CDs is today an important part of school projects . We can also use this idea for decoration for festivals. For Navratri golu it is good idea to decorate the golu with a CD decoration rangoli along with the regular rangoli or kolam. This can be retained for nine days ( the festival is celebrated for nine days ). My mother said that the Navratri golu is to be give the same importance we give for Pooja room and hence it is a good practice to decorate it in a similar way - by offering aarti, naivedyam , lighting lamps and decorating with a rangoli daily. We can use a kaavi border also.
simple decoration for Ganesh Chathurthi / Navratri / Diwali
Using CDs that are no longer being used we can make beautiful decorations for festivals. I have drawn the rangoli with 3D outliners. Simple free hand designs are drawn on the six CDs and the patterns are filled with glass colours. We can draw the patterns straight away or we can draw the template first. At the centre paste the picture of Ganpathi taken from any source ( I have taken Lord Ganpathi from a dhoop stick box ). The entire arrangement can be placed as a decoration during Ganpathi Chathurthi.
Navratri golu decoration ideas / Diwali rangoli ideasThis is a combination of CD , kundan rangoli on OHP sheet , kundan rangoli on foam sheet. Actually we can combine all or have them separately as rangoli designs. We can have an exclusive foam sheet rangoli craft , we can have a kundan rangoli design or CD rangoli as we have seen above. I have made different types of designs using different patterns and material and have stored them in a plastic container. So they are useful when we need for festival decoration. This rangoli below I have made for Navratri 2016 golu or kolu decoration. ( The lamp can be seen on the top left corner ). Actually we light two lamps , draw a kolam for golu . These artificial rangoli designs are in addition to the main rangoli to make the golu decoration even more attractive.
