During my recent visit to a lifestyle exhibition, I came across many such wood based Rangolis. After coming home, I planned to make some along with my 8 year old son and he was all game for it. He enjoyed putting the beads and stones and decorating the designs.
This is a peacock rangoli made using colored stones, beads, glitter glue, and the base is my son’s old wooden stacking toy square. The beads and stones were lying around in the house and we put them to a good cause. This Diwali we will use these decorated designs as centerpecie for our floor based traditional Rangoli. We believe in Reuse and Recycle !
