Every family wants to have rangoli designs to beautify their houses, and make their festivals more special, but not all of them are that skilled at it. In this article, we will discuss some easy rangoli designs with dots.
Dots happen to be the base of these designs, which are further linked with one another, in order to make a shape. They include easy shapes like squares and rectangles which can be easily drawn and colored. You have to remember to wipe out the extra dots after the design is drawn. After you complete the art, no one will figure out the hack you used to make it that presentable! This makes your work easier and even beginners can start off with these patterns.

Hexagonal and parallelogram designs in yellow, pink, green, blue and maroon
You have to first take a square base and make dots with white rangoli or a chalk. Start from the middle by making hexagonal shapes, and follow it with the shapes of parallelograms all around. Once the center is complete, you get enough space to repeat the designs on all the sides. Make one each at both sides, two fore the top and two below. All the hexagonal shapes should be yellow or any other singular color. While all the parallelograms are colored correspondingly. Take a close look at the picture and you will see that all the parallelograms follow the same color in the same line.
Floral patterns with triangles and hexagon in the middle
This is a quick and easy rangoli design. At first you have to make a square or hexagonal dotted pattern. You first draw a hexagon in the middle and then surround with triangular shapes. One big triangle intersects the other one and makes the design more alluring. It is perfectly colored in yellow and green, which shows them merge. Simply add two semi-circular designs between two corners of the triangles, and after doing all of them, you’ll find the floral pattern. Color them accordingly and get the perfect look.
Floral pattern in green and yellow
The design is easier than it looks. After you make a square dotted area, make a small circle in the middle and make it prominent enough. Follow it up with parallelograms and make sure that you surround the entire circle. What make the design look difficult are the tips. You simply have to rub that parallel lines and merge them and bring the curvy tip. If your dots are small, you can make straight lines in between with these. This way you will be able to add 2-3 different colors in the petals.
Diwali design with diya, yellow base color
You didn’t know that Diwali designs could be that easy, did you? Simply make a base and draw a big hexagon in the middle. From the center make a 6 cornered star, which actually looks like a flower. Leave enough space after the hexagon, so that you make the diyas. The diyas have a trapezium base, which are followed with a bud to make the flame. Make bigger petals while the diyas are in the middle. Color them according and let the base color be bright yellow, orange, pink, etc.
Glitter rangoli design in golden, silver, purple and blue
By now you have seen some common shapes which make dotted designs easier. This is yet another example which shows you this. The square and dotted base has been zig-zagged at the external part. In the middle you have petal design. Those are further enhanced with bud-like shapes which touch the square design. There are four more petals drawn around the main design. They have been beautifully colored with glitter rangoli powder.
Colorful floral design
This is another design which you can do on Diwali. There is a circle in the center, which has been topped with a diya! You need to make petal-like designs to make it look like a flower. You then make triangular shapes joining the corners of the petals. The rangoli looks bright because of so many colors that have been used. You can put diyas at every corner and make the design look beautiful.
Big and bright rangoli pattern with red base
The design is big and simple! You have to first make a square dotted base and start off from a big circle in the middle. The circles are going to be surround be rhombus shapes. Four rhombus shapes one after another, will include all the colors in them. All the four corners of the rhombuses are followed by bud like shapes, and the spaces between each bud have semi-circular patterns. You get adequate space to color them individually. Just make sure that all the shapes get similar colors on similar sides.
Big and bright rangoli pattern with orange base
This pattern needs some more efforts and preciseness. Your start off from the very small dot in the middle and make six rhombus shapes to form a petal. The outer designs have open trapeziums which surround the initial design. That design is again surrounded with hexagonal patterns and they should properly ascent the trapeziums. There are 1 more hexagons drawn on every middle hexagon and their ends will help you join the semi-circles. For some more beautification, you can make rhombus shaped floral (petals) patterns just like the one in the middle. Color them accordingly and pat your back!
Colorful diwali design with diyas
Make a 6 cornered star from the dot or circle in the center. From the middle of every two corners, make flame type designs. They are easy as you join one convex line with one concave line. After making three bud-like shapes make the cloud-like designs to make it big. Make a semi-circle and two vertical bud-like shapes for the diya. For the flame, make a similar horizontal semi-circle. Color them respectively and get a similar look.
Ganpati puja rangoli
If you want to slightly level-up, this one is a good try. Make one big rhombus shape and draw the picture as given. An opposite ‘S’ with an extra curve for the ears followed by a snake-like design to make the mouse. It isn’t as difficult as it looks. Surround the rhombus with another layer to add a border color. Make the external curves with white chalk. The follow two designs have a similar rangoli base. You just need an Om and a Swasthik to be drawn instead of the Ganpati design.
Simplest dotted rangoli with floral patterns
This is surely one of those beginner trials, which you should start rangoli patterns with. This is one the simplest dotted rangoli and it couldn’t get sleeker and easier! Make the curved lines in four sides and make sure they join. The edgy points will create floral petals on all the sides. Now, the smaller rangoli will have external designs on four corners which will extend this design and make it look prettier.
Geometric shapes with floral patterns
Relying on geometric shapes when you cannot make difficult rangolis is the best way to enhance a particular rangoli design. Dotted rangolis are mostly based on geometric shapes. We have an example below, which has been based on geometric patterns and is then added with floral shapes. You can make other shapes according to your preference and also add brighter colors to make it attractive.
