Creating Your Mandala
One of the great things about Mandalas is the fact that they are so simple to make. Today, I thought I'd show you how to make a mandala.
You will need a piece of paper, colored pencils, crayons, or markers.
Step 1: Drawing the circle.
Start by drawing a circle on a piece of paper. You can use a compass or just something big and round like a glass, bowl, or plate.
In the center of the circle, draw a dot as a focal point. I usually start by making an X in the center and move outward from the center.
Start drawing. I usually work from the center and go out. But just see where it takes you.
Step 4: Continue drawing until you have something you like.
Color your Mandala. Use colored pencils, markers, crayons, pastels, whatever you want. This is definitely my favorite part
You now have a completed mandala to share with others or keep for yourself.
I really enjoy creating mandalas. They are a great way to decrease stress, express yourself, and just enjoy creating things.
