How Do You Do Mandalas on Cricut?

Mandalas are intricate, circular designs that are used to represent the universe. Mandalas often contain religious or spiritual symbolism, and they can be used to create artwork and decorations.

Mandalas can be created with a variety of mediums, including paper, paint and fabric. With the advent of digital cutting machines such as the Cricut, it is now possible to create mandalas on vinyl and other materials with ease.

Creating a mandala on a Cricut is a relatively simple process. First, you’ll need to select an image or design for your mandala.

You can choose from ready-made designs available in the Cricut library, or you can create your own custom design using the Cricut Design Space software. Once you have your image or design ready, you’ll need to upload it into Design Space and adjust any settings that need tweaking before cutting.

Once your mandala design is ready in Design Space, it’s time to prepare for cutting. You’ll need to select a suitable material for your project – vinyl works well for this type of project – and adhere it onto the cutting mat with transfer tape or repositionable adhesive. Make sure that you’ve got all settings tweaked properly before starting the cut.

When your material is ready on the mat and all settings are set up properly in Design Space, send your project over to the machine for cutting. When the machine has finished its job, remove any excess material from around your cutouts before carefully peeling away each individual piece of cut vinyl from the mat.

Assembling Your Mandala

Once all pieces of your mandala have been cut out of their respective materials, it’s time to begin assembly.

Start by arranging each piece in its intended position on a flat surface according to your pattern. Then use glue or adhesive tape to secure each piece together one at a time.

Finishing Touches

Once all pieces have been glued together securely, it’s time for some final touches. Depending on what kind of material you’ve used for creating your mandala – such as paper or fabric – you may want to give it some extra pizzazz by adding glitter or gems here and there.


Creating Mandalas with Cricut is an easy way to bring beautiful art into any home decor project. With just some basic instructions and materials like paper or vinyl, anyone can make their own unique Mandala designs right in their own home!
