One of the most popular mandala posts on this website is the DIY Mandala Tutorials that I shared with you all in February of 2015. While those tutorials are still amazing, there are also some other really great tutorials that are video based out there. I’ve decided to put together this part II in order to show you some of those videos. I am including beginner AND advanced videos. Hope you like them and I truly hope they inspire you further!
Ok, so this was THE video that really got me interested. This video set my world on FIRE to draw these lovely amazing flowers that are built up with designs and petals of all sorts. And then I stumbled on to the term Mandala and it’s truly all the same thing!
Complete with compass, protractor, rulers, pens, pencils, and erasers. She leads you through the supplies and the steps quite well!

5. How To Draw Mandala (beginners guide) – the Art Geek : Website : Youtube
A fast paced video that leads you through the building of a mandala with no compass, ruler, or protractor.
This video is a bit different from the others. You don’t draw shapes and petals that get decorated or filled in. Instead you make all of these little bitty shapes and designs turn into petals. If drawing petals seems overwhelming, this is definitely another way to give it a go.
This 17 minute video is very detailed and is easy to follow along with.
