Muggulu designs without chukkalu

Simple muggulu without dots for Sankranti


First start with a square as in padi kolam  ,The completed kolam with colours 


Draw floral designs on the four sides  and at the four corners.


Decorate the floral designs with borders as shown in the subsequent pictures


White muggu is shown in the image .  It is beautiful as it is


This is from a collection of Dhanurmasam muggulu I posted during 2012.  Now I have shared again with steps.  A very simple and easy muggu.  The white design is in the image above,  If we need colours the colourful muggu has also been shared.  We can try this for Sankranti 2019

Chukkalu leni kamalam muggulu

Lotus and rose are the flowers usually drawn in muggulu.  I have also used the hibiscus.  Lotus can be a part of our Friday or Varalakshmi Vratham muggu decoration.


Start with a square base.  This is one of the easiest methods to start in free hand muggulu .  Lotus designs are drawn on all four sides.  It will be nice if we draw all the lotus designs from one side .
The more patterns we add the richer the muggu becomes as is evident from the next few images.



If you are drawing for Friday or Varalakshmi Pooja decorate with a kavi border
