Crochet String Light Circle

Seize the hook and make this illuminating rug!
It’s believed that mandalas exhibit radial balance. They bring eternal peace to their creators and let them focus attention on their work. They do have some spiritual powers but undoubtedly their most influencing benefit is the patience which is awarded when you see the final version of your magic circle. Originally, mandalas are made of powderly materials because they aren’t meant to be permanent. They should be destroyed, after all the intention not the product is important.

I’m not so keen on destroying my work but I adapt the mandala ideas to my DIY projects. Hula Hoop T-shirt Rug was one of my first magic circle enterprise. Now, it time I added some illumination to my crochet mandalas so I found Crochet String Light Circle on Crafty Queens. You take a few easy steps to complete this project. It can become a rug or a floodlit decoration on the wall.
