The word “Mandala” is from the classical Indian language that means “circle”. It represents wholeness, a cosmic diagram that reminds us of our relation to the infinite. When used in crafts, the design of Mandala involves layers of circles and the number of layers depends on your preference. Here is a nice tutorial by a Russian stylist, Natalia Semenova, on how to weave a Mandala brooch using toothpicks. What a creative and easy way to make a beautiful Mandala brooch! Take this idea further and you can make pendants, earrings and other accessories. Enjoy!
Here are the things you will need:
- Colored thread or yarn;
- 4 toothpicks;
- A little bit of patience 🙂
