To make your own winter mandala, gather bits of stuff you find outside: twigs, dried leaves, milkweed pods and other pods, stems, dried flower heads, needles, pinecones, stones….
Begin small. Some people start by putting something in the center, then creating a circle around it. But there is no single "right" way to design your nature art.
Here are some other ways to create winter mandalas:
- Make a mandala for the birds (and squirrels) using chopped nuts, raisins and other dried fruits, sunflower seeds, and bird seed. Then watch and see who comes to visit.
- Create a mandala out of snowballs, icicles, your boot tracks.
What a cute idea. I really miss having snow. Thanks for the post.ReplyDelete
Hi Rosi, I'd send you snow if I could - we have plenty to share. But the cool thing is that you can make mandalas on a sidewalk, a beach, in a patch of dirt at the back end of the yard, or even on the forest floor.Delete
