Mandala Wall Art – Still a WIP

Remember that mandala wall art project I started two months ago? Well, I’m happy to announce that…it’s almost done! I know, I really thought this would be done but after seeing what the mandalas look like on the wall I want to make more. This is what it looks like so far:Mandala Wall Art 1- Pops de Milk

As you can see, this is not in my bathroom as I originally wanted it to be. After getting feedback from Jason and my family about bathroom humidity and potential mould growing on my beautiful mandalas, I decided to instead place them above our dresser. This decision was made a month ago and it was only a week ago that I actually put the mandalas on the wall. Why? Because I was really stuck on how to secure them to the wall without having to hammer in nails. I had thought about reusable adhesive but feared it wouldn’t be strong enough. I continued to think and brainstorm until eventually I gave the adhesive a try. And it worked!

Now I just need to make a few more. If you’re wondering how to make your own mandala wall art just check out a few mandala patterns and then experiment with different stitches. Once you’ve made a few you can stiffen them by applying a generous coat of Mod Podge to the back of the mandala:Mandala Wall Art 7- Pops de Milk

Allow to completely dry and apply more glue if needed. Stick reusable adhesive to the back and press firmly into the wall. Each mandala is different in size and weight so you may need more or less adhesive and if it falls (as one of mine did) just apply more adhesive.Mandala Wall Art 3- Pops de MilkMandala Wall Art 6- Pops de Milk Mandala Wall Art 2- Pops de Milk

  1. Amazing! I want to make one (or a dozen) too! I can see how they would be addictive. Especially since I’m always trying to come up with ways to use up scrap yarn. Great ideas on how to hang them too! A splendid post, Patricia!

  2. Thank you for posting this! I have been looking for a way to mount my crochet mandalas without using embroidery hoops – this is very helpful! Thank you =)
