Mandala Cone Tree

I make mandala earrings that sell at Sunrose Gallery here in Seaside, Oregon.  I purchase a PDF of the mandalas and  usually make several copies when I  find some cool ones on Etsy.  The other day I was surprized to discover  I had 5 pages of mandalas in my print-out folder!  So I decided to use up several sheets of the mandala images to make a cone Christmas tree and I am happy how it turned out.

Step One: Coat each image with a thick coat of Judikin’s Diamond Glaze (so it will have some strength.)

Step Two:  After the glaze is completely dry, cut out the images.

Step Three:  Use hot glue to attach to a cone tree that has been coated with black glitter.

Step Four:  Attach a flat bead to each center.

FYI:  I got my mandala images on Etsy.

After I make something I have never seen before curiousity gets me and I want to see if there is something similar to my idea.  I found some other cool ideas on Pinterest that feature mandalas:

This is fun and colorful!  It would be an easy print project.

 

man 2

This would be a fun mandala project to do with the kids.

 

man 4

Ha!  When I Googled “mandala tree” up popped an image of the advent calendar I made last year!

I hope the mandala’s inspire you!
