This is one of the latest things in the market. These are sticks on acrylic sheets which have blingy, shiny designs. They look unique and are best when you feel you cannot dedicate as much time you should for a rangoli. Besides, you do not have to worry about people stepping on it and spoiling it.

This is a cool design where you can make a figure using bold colours and like the woman here has been given a diya in her hand, you too can get as creative. You can also make namaskaram hands with a diya in between or hanging lamps design with actual diyas places on the curves. 

Flower Power

This is the easiest, classy yet needs precision. Just gather a lot of marigold flowers and draw a cool design. On those lines place the marigolds and leave space for the diyas or candles. Light them once you are done with the puja and click pics for Instagram!

Ombre Effect

This is a basic number but sometimes basic is the best. If you don't have many colours then simply draw something in white and fill in with a maroon colour. You could take some maroon kumkum and mix it with water and apply.
