Make a Mandala in your garden

Updated: Mar 31, 2020

This is an idea we have borrowed from our friend Dani at

A mandala is usually circular and represents the Universe in Hinduism and Buddhism. The circular design symbolises never ending life.

What you'll need:

  • A dry day in the garden or park

  • Petals, leaves, sticks, pebbles, shells if you have them

Step 1

Pop your shoes on and head out into the garden or the park and collect a selection of natural items. This works best of you have a handful of petals and a handful of sticks rather than just one of each item. See what you can find.

Please remember to ask permission before you pick any flowers.

Step 2

Find a nice place on the grass or patio for the setting of your artwork. Start in the middle and work you way round the centrepiece placing your items on the ground to create a circle.

You can make this as large or as small as you want to.

Have fun and send us a picture of your finished mandala!


Always ask permission before you pick anything that's growing.

Theo and I loved the Mandala project! We collected leaves, petals and flowers on our daily walk around the block and also used some from our garden.
