Easiest Rangoli

My parents were on vacation for a week and the maid had quit the job. It was my responsibility to take care of my home. During the course of time, I learnt many household chores.

Everyday, I would see the lovely Rangoli's drawn in front of everyone's house. I was thinking hard, what could be drawn for a week without repetition? I noticed each and every Rangoli for 2-3 minutes to understand its complexity. Once I noticed a Rangoli drawn without any dots. I tried this simplest design on a sheet of paper before I drew in front of the house.

PS: The quality of the pics are low and shown only for illustration.

Step 1:

Star Rangoli-1
Draw two triangles opposite to each other.
Step 2:

Star Rangoli-2
Draw an outline to both the triangles.
Step 3:

3Star Rangoli-3
Now, join the edges of all the lines.

Step 4:
Star Rangoli-4
Fill with your favorite colors.

Simple isn't it? :)
I call it Star Rangoli.

  7. Your rangoli maybe simple, but it will be superhit in Israel. It afterall resembles the Star of David.

  8. @ flyingstars, Thanks.

    @ Joel,Let me try a few good ones and I can participate better.

    @ Priyank, Never knew it was called Star of David, though I've seen it many places.
