Ganesh festival or Ganapati Chaturthi happens to be a major festival in Maharashtra. They go through a long holiday time of 11 days along with grand celebrations and puja. Ganesh puja is prominent in other parts of India as well, although is it more widely celebrated in Maharashtra. Rangolis happen to be one of the major parts of Indian festivals, as they color the floors and brighten our hearts. These are colorful patterns drawn and are traditionally followed for different occasions. In this article, we will go through some rangoli ideas for Ganesh festival. You can also use these during Diwali as that too is another time when we do Laxmi and Ganesh puja.
Floral pattern with Ganapati face
Ganapati faces are common rangoli patterns for this occasion, since they relate to it perfectly and are easy to draw. In this design we see a floral pattern which has been chalked out in white. The petals have been colored with yellow glittered rangoli and are then followed by a big circular portion for the core. This is filled with red glittered rangoli. You have to then make the make of Ganeshji with rangoli cones.
Ganesh face rangoli in blue
This is pretty rangoli design because it looks bright and is colored in different shades. Chalk out the face of Ganapati with the black outline. You can make a sketch at first and then go for the outline. You can also opt to give a base color which can be white, yellow, etc. The face has more of blue, but that too have shades and fades according to the areas. Every blue merges into a light shades and turns white. You might have to be careful about the blending portion. Accessorize the neck and add the ‘Om’ sign as directed.
Beautiful floral patterned rangoli with Ganesh
Make a big circular portion for the middle with the base color of red. Add another circumference in orange. Make two floral outlines, one over another, so that you can color and section them out individually. The smaller floral layer will have alternative colors filled with red and blue. The blue areas will be followed by green and red will be followed by orange for the upper layer. Add easy designs in white over the petaled zones. For the middle portion, you have to use white for chalking out the Ganesh shape. For doing it neatly you must keep rangoli instrument handy.
Easy Ganesh face pattern with ring designs
Make a base in vermilion or red for the first circular or ring pattern. Add two more layers in yellow and blue. They would be gradually thin down. The yellow portions have been enhanced with more designs to beautify the look. The vermilion color has the Ganesh face, but it looks easy to do. Draw a ‘Y’ shape for the trunk and the rest of the designs will become easy to follow. The eyes, the ears and the forehead zone need not much difficulty. Just make sure that they are properly aligned and your work looks neat.
Unique Ganapati rangoli
This is an exclusive piece which has to be chalked out differently. At first you have to make the design of the face and then make the body, ears and finally the diya shape. This rangoli plays with the shape ‘S’ because you can see numerous shapes of it, completing the design properly. The shades of the colors start with yellow, orange, red and ends with brown. The light colors seem to blend into the dark and that makes it more appealing to the spectators.
Full and big Ganeshji rangoli with different colors
This is a big rangoli design which draws the entire figure of Lord Ganesha. All the parts of the body have been detached, which makes the outline easier to chalk out and even easier to fill in the colors. You know that you can easily brush off some extra color if it goes out of the border and it also gives a neater look. Chalk out the different zones starting from the face to the feet. Fill in bright colors to make it alluring.
Ganesh face and lotus
This is an easy design which can actually be unexpected for the viewers. The shades of colors used are very dull and that is what gives it a different taste. The face of Ganesha has been outlined with white and then the area over the forehead has been accessorized. This is followed by an upside-down lotus shape which makes the design look different yet catchy. Fill it with dull shades of green and purple, and use glittered powder if possible. Add diyas for the brightening bit!

Colorful Ganesha pattern on white board
Keeping a white board for your rangoli is another option if you don’t want to have it done on the floor. We see a rectangular white board which includes a Ganesh pattern in the middle and is then colors and covered with other shades. The Elephant faced God is easy to draw chalk out and fill in with colors. Use different shades of blue for the face and keep the lower portion as easy as possible. The design is backed with layers of colors which include dark blue, purple and red. The interior colors have green and yellow for on the contrary.
Canvas painting rangoli idea
Canvas paintings often give tips to rangoli patterns. You can take a pretty and easy tip from the design below. The shape of the Ganesh includes parts of His body, which overlap into each other like we draw Venn diagrams. These give us two sections of every part and also give us more chances to fill in colors. Use bright shades like red, yellow, orange, green and blue, and make sure that every zone blossoms their identity with the color differentiation.
Beautiful glitter rangoli
This is a beautiful glitter rangoli design which can be easily incorporated for your Ganesh puja.

This is cute rangoli which is easy to do. You have to first chalk out a rhombus shape on the floor and fill it with a dark shade like brown. Make another rhombus on the inside and use yellow or orange. Make the Ganapati’s face with white powder and then add designs on the brown base. You can choose designs which are comfortable to you. Small rangolis should be neater to look at.
Creative blend of colors
This rangoli patten isn’t very difficult but what still makes it super attractive is the way the colors have been blended together. There are dark to light shades of green and red which can be easily adopted for making a nice base. After you have created the base of the rangoli you simply need to make the face of Ganeshji, that too in a form of an outline only.
