  1. Assemble all materials at one place.
  2. Tie one end of the thread to a wet chalk piece.
  3. Put a dot , then place  your thumb tightly over the thread on the dot and draw a circle.
  4. Similarly draw 2 more bigger circles encircling each other by increasing the radius.
  5. Make a small incision in the colored rangoli packet.
  6. Now hold the Sieve in your left hand and pour little amounts of red rangoli powder regulating the flow using the plastic cover of the rangoli packet itself. . The trick is to never let your sieve touch the ground. However keep it as close to the ground as possible.. Fill up the inner circle. Ignore if it falls a little outside the chalk circle.
  7. Similarly, Add yellow color outside the red
  8. Now fill the biggest circle with green rangoli powder.
  9. Make a fresh cone using magazine cover. stick it in place using a cello-tape. Fill it upto 3/4 using white rangoli powder. cut the lower end of the cone so as to allow free fall of rangoli powder.
