Easy rangoli hacks for Diwali festival

I usually share traditional rangoli on social media.

There were several requests for rangoli tips for beginners including easiest methods of drawing for festivals like Dhanteras, Bhaj Dhuj, Lakshmi Pooja and of course Dipavali.

 I started sharing designs with tools available at home  bangles, old CDs, spoons.  etc.  The advantage is we get the simplest rangoli in the shortest possible time. 

They are also perfectly symmetrical.  Later many on social media started trying their own versions.  

After trying these simple rangoli hacks , please also read the post on a complicated rangoli technique that is rare

Simple rangoli hacks for Diwali and New Year 
This is a fusion of a traditional rangoli , only the circle is drawn with a tool.  The spirals and other patterns are drawn free hand. The trick in drawing the spiral is that it should be drawn in a single stroke to get a beautiful and uniform pattern.  If we draw in two or three steps it will be non-uniform with joints.
