I am so excited to show you these two Mandala Wall Art Home Decor ideas I made with my sister, Angela! Both of these mandalas, even though they have very different styles, started as blank kits!

That means that you can decorate your mandala craft kit however you want to match your own decor style!

Check out the other craft kits available in my shop!

Mandala Wall Art Home Decor Idea #1

I decorated my mandala craft kit with navy, white and coral paint. To get the ombre/blended effect between the paint colors, I used wedge sponges.

For the backing, I mixed a bit of DecoArt cobblestone with white paint and applied an even coat of the mixture.

I used my heat gun to quickly dry the paint on both pieces of the mandala kit, then placed the reed around the edge of the circle backing and glued it to be the right size.

I mixed a bit of navy blue paint into the cobblestone/white mixture and used that to paint the reed circle. Once the paint was dry, I glued it onto the circle backing piece.

Then, I glued the mandala overlay pieces inside the reed circle. Next up are the little potted plants that come with the mandala craft kit.

Mandala craft kit accent pieces

I stained the stems of each of the plants with brown paint. and I painted the foliage for the plants with Waverly Moss chalk paint.

I had to paint over the stems with brown paint because some of the green paint covered up where I had stained before.

Next, I used Waverly celery chalk paint to highlight and add detailing to the foliage for each of the potted plants.

I painted the pots for the plants with tan paint and used darker brown to make the pots look dirtier/more detailed.

Paint the base piece of the potted plants with the same mixture you used to paint the reed piece from earlier. Allow all the paint to dry, then glue the potted plant pieces together.

Lastly, I glued a piece of jute twine to the back of the mandala so I could hang it. I recommend using finger protectors when gluing the twine. You can find some good ones on Amazon!

Mandala Wall Art Home Decor Idea #2

My sister Angela made the second mandala wall art home decor idea, and it turned out SO CUTE! If you want to make yours like hers, start by decoupaging the scrapbook paper onto the circle backing.

Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the circle and place the scrapbook paper onto the surface. Use a rolling pin to smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles in the scrapbook paper.

Next, get the mandala overlay piece, your paints, and some wet wipes. Use the wet wipes to apply dark brown paint around the outer edge of the mandala overlay piece.

Use another wet wipe to apply and blend a lighter brown paint from the edge of the dark paint towards the center of the mandala.

Once the glue and mod podge are dry on both pieces of the mandala craft kit, glue them together.

Angela painted her potted plants the same way I did, but she stained the base with a light brown instead of the paint mixture I used.

Let all the painted pieces dry, then glue them together. Lastly, glue a piece of jute twine to the back of the mandala and you’re ready to decorate!

  1. Hello! Loved watching you two painting the mandala. Looked great! I would try doing a paint and macrame w/beads artistic kind of thing (leaving the back off). Hope you’re having fun this week.
