5 point star mandala wall hanging in red white and blue colors for 4th of July

Boho Wall Hangings and Crafty Mandalas are all the rage for home decor! No matter your style, farmhouse, modern, ecclectic…you can find a wall hanging that’s the perfect fit. So, I thought, what better time to create a Star Mandala Wall Hanging in a Fourth of July colorway?!

I used the traditional method of creating a 5-point granny star, crocheting in the round. Then, I experimented a little bit and came up with the perfect formula for turning my star into a mandala.

Since we’re getting so close to the 4th, I’ve got my wall hanging on my front door, just in time to celebrate. But, don’t worry, you have plenty of time to complete yours. The entire project took under 2 hours to complete using a super chunky yarn and 8.00 mm hook.

Not in the mood to celebrate Independence Day? No worries, switch up the colors and you can create any type of star mandala you like! I’ve already got one in the works with Dallas Cowboys colors as a surprise for my hubby.
