DIY Mehndi Design (Henna Pattern) Tutorial

Hi friends, its that time of the year again, Durga Puja, Diwali, Bhai Dooj, all festivals are lined up one after the other. And not to forget Karva Chauth.

I had shared a mehndi pattern tutorial on the blog which is the most loved on pinterest (you can see it here) I had thought I would do more such posts but I just realized its almost two years since I did that post, gosh! It is high time I share at least one more DIY mehndi tutorial with you all so that you can try it out one of these days during all the festivity.

I am planning on doing this on my hand on Karva Chauth, my  favorite celebration of love. (All my non-Indian friends you can search the festival names mentioned in this post on google as I don't want to go on ranting about all the goodness that each festival brings)

Coming straight to the tutorial - I saw this amazing henna pattern on instagram (shared by someone from facebook - I think its going around on a lot of social media channels but I have no idea who really owns this image.

I think this neat and simple patterns looks amazing. Just follow the picture tutorial below step by step and you will see it is an easy pattern and all that you need is a steady hand.

So first we begin with the most basic lines that make the pattern going through the center of the hand.

This is the basic pattern that is also used to create the semicircle on the outer part of the hand. This pattern is done on the back of the hand but you can do the same pattern on the palm as well and it would look just as gorgeous.
