Lately I’m quite obsessed with mandalas and its geometric shapes and repetitions. I really have a good time drawing them. It’s very relaxing and creative. In addition, once you have the mandala drawn, colored or made, it’s a nice piece of decoration and, if you love meditate or you practice yoga, it’s a good point to focus your mind while you try to reach the Nirvana.
Today we have searched a good tutorial to show you how to make a beautiful Mandala String Art full of colors. Here you have a nice video made by Diônatan Bertelli

As you see, you will need:

  • Round shaped wooden board (painted in black, white or the color you like the most
  • Nails
  • Hammer
  • White, soft purple, dark purple, soft or pastel green and turquoise threads.
  • Picture or Frame Hangers.(

The process is simple and I think that you already know it, but as you can see on the video, it’s about to tie the thread into one nail and its opposite and repeat it until you have finished. It’s better to watch the videotutorial to be sure that you’re doing it right.
