Making Natural Mandalas

A mandala made from petals and leaves.
Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning circle. The mandala holds a lot of symbolism particularly in Hindu and Buddhist cultures. The complex design is circular in nature, even if there are other shapes included, it retains a concentric circle pattern. They are used for focusing ones attention and aid in meditation and other spiritual pursuits. The mandala offered on this page was made using flowers, twigs, lichen, and fir cones.

Natural MandalasMy friend recently made this with her young daughter! It's a great way to get out and explore nature, looking for different colors and textures to incorporate into a natural work of art! You can also use items from home to enhance your design. We would love to see what you create, so please share them here on ThriftyFun!

I love this bit of nature art. What a great way to display the gazillion dandelions and fir cones in my back yard :)
