Directions to make the Rangoli Craft

Download the Rangoli Template provided at the end of this post. Print the template and use it to cut pieces from cardstock paper in various colours. Create as many pieces as needed.

A beautiful Rangoli typically requires a minimum of 20 pieces. So cut accordingly and keep in mind that this is the most time-consuming aspect of the crafting process.

Rangoli Craft Pieces

With the Rangoli pieces cut and ready, you can move on to assembling the craft.

Choose either brown craft paper or black construction paper for the base. Black is recommended for a vibrant look.

Make a 9″ circle and cut it out to serve as the base for your Rangoli.

Begin arranging the Rangoli pieces on the circular base until you are satisfied with the design.

Once pleased with the arrangement, start glueing the pieces in place. Feel free to experiment with the arrangement of pieces to create a unique and beautiful Rangoli design.

Start with larger pieces and add smaller ones gradually. There is no fixed process, and you can rearrange the pieces as you go along but before sticking them.

Aim for a radially symmetrical design, a key aspect of Rangoli art.
Use contrasting colours for a vibrant output. Make as many Rangolis as you desire. It’s an enjoyable activity, especially for kids.

This craft is suitable for classrooms and other group settings.

I’m sure that children will thoroughly enjoy engaging in this delightful art form! Here’s a glimpse of our six-year-old daughter enthusiastically creating her Rangoli craft using the pre-cut pieces.

Effortless Methods for Cutting Paper Patterns for Kids’ Crafts

Wondering about the process of cutting the Rangoli pieces? If the thought of manually cutting numerous pieces seems daunting, fear not. There’s a straightforward solution: The Cricut Maker.

While I wouldn’t necessarily recommend the Cricut Maker for every craft project, it’s exceptionally beneficial for this particular one. Though it comes with a relatively higher cost, it proves invaluable if you frequently engage in crafting at home or need to cut out pieces for a classroom setting.

Here’s how to go about it:

The Free Rangoli template consists of multiple pages. The first page contains the template for manually tracing and cutting the pieces from cardstock paper in the colour of your choice.

The subsequent pages feature repeated designs. Import these pages into Cricut Design Space and proceed to cut out the patterns. This process is remarkably simple and takes just 1 or 2 minutes to cut patterns from an entire A4 paper.

We’ve personally crafted hundreds of pieces in various colours and patterns using the Cricut, enhancing our enjoyment in creating vibrant Rangolis.
