How to make mandala: step-by-step guide for beginners

A mandala is a complex abstract art, usually in circular forms with its center point from which different symbols and patterns are drawn. It is an echo of your soul and helps to bring the real artist in you. Despite of the theories and its popularity, it’s not that hard to make. Welcome to Unique Ideas-ideas for life and in today’s episode, I am sharing a beginner’s guide for creating mandala patterns. So here it is, How to make Mandala: Step-by-step guide for beginners. But firstly, let’s see how this art is really cool and what can be created using it. Watch  this on YouTube: click here.

Watch YouTube video and learn to make mandala:

Applications of mandala art:

       A number of beautiful creations can be done with mandala art.

  • How about a wall art?

You can use mandala in decorating your walls. These look absolutely beautiful and give a traditional look to your home.

  • Wall-hangings:

You can place mandala paintings as wall-hangings. The same as wall-art but you can place them anywhere as you like.

  • Hand-painted Jewellery box:

A mandala can make a jewellery box unique. It can be an ideal gift for anyone you love.

  • Mandala flower vases:

Interesting and unique these flower vases can be a cool stuff to sell. Consider making it for craft fairs or as gift.

  • More cool stuff:

You can use mandala in Stone art to decorate your garden. These also go well with cushion cover, book-cover, cards, table mats, and curtains.


What you will need?

You will need the following:

  • An ivory sheet 12”*16” – it’s the ideal size for small wall art however, you may start off with any paper and size
  • Colour-pens with 5mm tip- usually 5mm tip can create a clear and beautifully detailed mandala so consider using a fine tip pen if 5mms are not available.
  • Compass- for making circles
  • Pencil, eraser, and other stationery

How to make it?

When you have gathered all supplies, let’s move to the creation part!

  • You can start off with drawing circles from a source point with the help of compass. Draw neat and light circles with pencil so you can erase it off later.
  • Start drawing some more levels of concentric circles till you like. Try to keep them at a good distance. You don’t want to get things messy.
  • Now start with the filling process. Make abstract patterns that you like- loops, triangles, etc. You may use any colour or a black ink – whatever you like.
  • You can fill these with water-colours, crayons, or colour-pens whatever feel good.

Some Important tips:

  • You may want to try mandala with textured or color paper but when you are trying at colored background use black or blue inks only to make designs. Using a variety of color there can spoil the look.
  • Draw designs using fine tip pens for detailing and clearer look.
  • Align designs in symmetry. You know, everything that falls in symmetry makes it beautiful.
  • If you are not sure if your circles look right then you can try using polar graph sheets or you can trace them on your sheet by carbon sheets.
