Hi, guys! How are you? In our previuos posts, Mandala String Art, step by step, we have already seen how to make a Mandala String Art on a video tutorial. Today we are going to show us more impressive mandala String Art designs that can inspire you to create new shapes and crafts.
First of all, we want to talk a little about the mandalas. In case you do not know, the mandalas are spiritual symbolic representations of the macrocosm and the microcosm, used in Buddhism and Hinduism. They are usually circular shapes that have a center from which perfect geometric shapes emerge.
These pieces can be great to decorate a teashop, a religious articles store or a meditation room, due to the fact that mandalas help to relax and meditate, as we can see in the previous image. Then, we will see some stunning designs because of their shapes and the color of their threads.
We start with this wonderful and complex mandala in orange and yellow tones. We can appreciate many geometric shapes within the circle. You can buy it on Etsy.
This other mandala String Art has no circular shape, although it seems. Actually it is a geometric shape with 22 points or vertexes. We really love the mix of colours used.
Notice that a mandala String Art can be ever better if we make it on a round wooden base. This is made by Crafty Starling with cherry wood and is amazing.
For this, byHANDstringart has used a thicker type of yarn or thread. This is mandala String Art easier to make, their shapes and figures are simpler, but still looks great.
We really like this gradient color from blue to green for a String Arty mandala. Absolutely gorgeous, made by the hand of RaesCraftyCreations.
You can also make Mandala String Art with some blank spaces inside, like this design with rainbow colours threads created by @entrehilosuy.
This mandala String Art, also forming a 22 vertex polygon is great because of the striking colors he has used. The shape departs from the central yellow point and comes out with several radius and a gradient is made at the same time. This work is by Mandalas Olho de Deus.
This mandala String Art is special because it is made with blue threads that glow in the dark. In addition, its figures are wonderful and seems like a lotus. A work made by MagicLineStore.
Form concentric circles in the middle that look like an eye is a good start for a mandala String Art, as we can see in this piece made by ESTREDAYENU.
This design is similar to the previous one, follows the idea of concentric circles and is something appreciated in a mandala.
The swirl is not a very common figure in the mandalas, but, nevertheless, it has a central point and is circular, so it can enter this category.
We hope you have enjoyed these mandala String Art designs and we hope that now you are feeling like making a DIY mandala String Art like one of them to decorate your room and that it helps you to concentrate and meditate.
We can’t understand how, after so many years of bloging, we haven’t dedicated yet one post to talking about cactus Strings Art! Luckily, today we have thought about it and we have looked for the 10 best cactus String Art, so, here we have our Top 10. As we can see below, some of them are regular cactus or succulent, others are cactus with flowers and others are cactus that can be found in flowerpots or in the plains of the desert. Let’s take a look at these 10 works.
We love this String Art with three different cactus planted in three pretty pots, each one of a color. Notice that one of them has pretty flowers. You can DIY or buy it on BrittasDreamDesigns.
CACTUS AND SUCCULENTS
Pay attention also to these beautiful succulents and cactus on a dark wood base. We love their shapes and colors. This work was created by Rachel Herring.
We leave the flowerpots and we take a look at the plains of the desert to imagine a big cactus like this one. It’s a nice piece that you can buy at Etsy or, if tyou prefer Do It Yoursef, so we encourage you to watch this tutorial by Love Tempe.
Here you haver another tutorial step by step by TurquoiseBoutiqueStudio that could help too to make this cactus String Art.
CACTUS WITH CLOTH FLOWER
Sometimes it is very good when we add an object of another material in a String Art work. For example, in the next two cactus String Art, the flower is made of cloth and it looks wonderful. This one is made by BrittasDreamDesigns and the next one with the orange flower is made by Locker Pivots.
If the String Art is to decorate a nursery, it is better to make it with soft and pastel colors, like this cactus full of flowers and beautiful details. It’s no longer avaliable on Etsy but you can Do It Yourself having it as a reference.
CACTUS WITH FRINGES
If you are tired of cactus flowers, you can add something more original, like pompoms or colored fringes. You can see the full tutorial step by step visiting Perles and Co.
THREE CACTUS ON WOOD SLICE
In case you would like to add something different on the cactu String Arty, you can also change the base from normal wood piece to a slice of wood. You can buy it on hannahhandcraftedco or take it as an example and try to imitate it.
Another original way to make these String Art cactus is by drawing them in geometric shapes. It gives a much more modern look. We have found it on Pinterest.
REAL CACTUS ON STRING ART
To finish, we turn it around and we offer you a variety of a geometric String Art with real cactus planted in the wood base, as if they were flowerpots or vertical planters. Is really really original and you can found the whole tutorial step by step on Brit.co.
We wish that all these cactus String Art have pleased you and that you decorate your home walls with them. We encourage you to do it yourselves and tell us how it was. See you soon!
You can use these free pattern to make a wonderful geo String Art DIY too, even if your are not muslim, but you really love their artwork or culture.
There are not very easy to make because the figures are complex, but the amazing result deserves the hard work. We hope you enjoy it.
