Wooden Rangolis are alternative to traditional colourful powdered rangolis use to decorate our houses entrance.But having an added advantage of not being destroyed with wind,or by stepping it or for any other various reasons.Of course apart from giving different look, it is washable,flexible and reusable.This rangolis are made on plywood,coloured and embellished with pretty kundans,laces,butties etc..This can be used as wall hangings.
