Very small kolam designs for flats

Two of the constraints that we face at present are time and space . Many live in flats and particularly if the entrances of neighbours 

are very close space to draw our daily rangoli becomes a premium. 

Similarly time is also a factor in many homes because both husband and wife are office goers.  So a few very small rangoli designs in this post for our vasal kolangal.

Browse this website for hundreds or thousands ( I have lost count !) of simple to difficult rangoli designs and techniques. 

We can have some order for drawing our daily rangoli designs.  For Friday a small padi kolam with kavi . On other days we can draw small rangoli even with 2,3 or four dots with decorations inside and outside 

We can also reserve couple of days for free hand kolam.  I do not draw sikku kolam on Fridays and festivals. 

I prefer to use only kola podi to create kolam at the entrance.  Some how it gives me a sense of satisfaction 

doing it the traditional way .  Having said that drawing with arisi maavu was traditional before the advent of kola podi.

1) Very small and easy rangoli can be drawn without chukki 


2) The pic below shows how to draw a deepam kolam with 5 to 1 dots 

3) Smallest rangoli ( in the world ! ) but it is popular as an Instagram reel. You never know which video goes viral 

4) The small bird kolam below uses a 3 by 3 dots .  Shading at the right places should be done 


5) A very small and easy maavilai ( mango leaf ) rangoli


6) Rangoli tip _ Various options for drawing floral designs in rangoli - small pulli illatha kolam

The next image shows a collection of small small rangolis that we can add to our inventory .  Some of them can be used to decorate the periphery of an already drawn design
