Wondering how to make simple mehndi designs at home? Many cultures have their own ways of decorating the body. One is the Indian mehndi design that adorns the hands. Women paint mehndi onto their hands and feet. This tradition is mostly in Indian weddings, as it is seen as a way to show to other people that the bride is coming into the new marriage with a clean slate. There are many variations of this design, but it also depends on the region.

For instance, in the northwestern parts of India, mehndi is painted on the back of the hand and in the southern regions, the whole hand is covered with intricate patterns. Decorating the hands is a fun way to connect to your culture and heritage. It’s a great way to learn more about the parents and relatives that you never knew before. Not to mention, it is a beautiful design to adorn your skin! These simple mehndi designs will give you an idea of what’s possible when you want something easy and fun!

These are simple designs that beginners can try. The first step is to check the size of your hand and feet, then you can try out different mehndi designs on these areas. A mehndi design for hands would be a heart shape or some other geometric shapes with varying shades of pink or red color applied on it using henna paste (or any other kind of paste). For feet, you need to draw an outline of your foot with black powder and then add some color in between them by applying henna paste on them again.

Here are some more simple designs that you can use as base when creating your own unique style:

Paisley

Paisley is a popular mehndi design that can be done on the palm of your hand. It is usually made up of leaves and vines, but it could also be done in black, brown or red.

Paisley designs are usually done with white powder to give them an antique look, but you can also use natural henna powder to achieve this effect if you prefer not using any kind of dyes during your mehndi session!

Mehndi designs are usually done on the palms, but they can also be applied to other areas such as hands, arms and even feet. The design is made up of leaves and vines that intertwine together to form a beautiful pattern. The design can be done in black, brown or red. 

Stitch Mehendi design

  • Use henna powder.
  • A stencil.
  • Use permanent marker and toothpick (or q-tip).
  • If you’re using a permanent marker and your mehndi design is small, use a cotton swab instead of the toothpick because it will be easier to get into all the little cracks that you need to fill in with color!

This is my favorite technique because it’s quick but still allows you to feel like the artist. You can experiment on paper before trying it out on your arm or leg.

Florals

Floral mehndi designs are the most popular among women. You can choose flowers in different colors and styles to make a unique mehndi design on your hands or feet.

  • Flowers will add color and beauty to your hands, making them look more beautiful than before.
  • If you want to use flowers in mehndi designs then it is better if you have good knowledge about flowers so that you can make perfect flower patterns on your hands or feet with ease. The following steps will help you choose right type of flower for each part of body:

You can also choose flowers based on your mood, favorite colors etc. If you want to use flowers in mehndi designs then it is better if you have good knowledge about flowers so that you can make perfect flower patterns on your hands or feet with ease.

Mughal-inspired design

Mughal designs have been around for a long time. They were originally used as designs on the Emperor’s clothing, and were later adapted to be used on feet and hands. They are also called “Mogul” and “Moghul” designs. The designs were first started in the 1600s, and many people think they originated during the Moghul Empire, which was in India. Mughal designs are commonly used in henna tattoos, which are used as body art.

Content: They are often found in wedding celebrations, and they can also be used as a form of body art. Henna tattoos are temporary, and are created by using henna to dye skin. However, a lot of people are using henna to not only dye skin, but also to dye hair, fingernails, and eyelashes! Mughal-inspired designs can be drawn as simple outlines or filled with glitter and gold powder.

Mehndi is a beautiful art form that can be used to express many different emotions and feelings. While there are many different ways to apply mehndi designs, the process can be simplified by using homemade Mehndi paste. This homemade version of mehndi paste will save you time and money while still giving you the same look and feel of store-bought or professionally done mehndis. In this session, we’ll show you how to make your own simple hand/foot mehndi designs at home!

Step 1: Practice the basics.

  • Practice the basics.
  • Or on paper and make sure that you can do it perfectly. Do this before moving onto the next step of this tutorial.
  • Or on your hand, foot, face and arm before moving onto other parts such as legs or chest/back area etc…

Once you feel comfortable with drawing designs on paper, then practice on your hand. Start out by creating basic outlines of flowers or leaves using a pen or sharpie marker.

Step 2.: Start with simple shapes and patterns.

Now that you’re ready to get started, it’s time to start with simple shapes and patterns.

  • Don’t be afraid to try something new. The first step in making a mehndi design is choosing the shape of your design. If there are no specific guidelines or rules for this step, take inspiration from nature—the flowers on a branch or leaves on a tree will give you ideas!
  • Don’t worry about making mistakes (or getting it perfect). Once you’ve decided what shape(s) are right for your face and hair color, don’t stress about whether everything looks exactly like what was imagined in your head; just focus on creating beautiful designs by following these steps:
  • Pick colors that work well together – yellow/green works well with brown skin tones; red/orange works well with blondes; purple/blue works well against black hair colors . . . etc..
  • Choose patterns based on skin tones – if one person has darker colored skin than another person who also happens have blue eyes then perhaps choose an orange pattern instead because oranges look better against dark browns than light ones do? Or maybe just stick with greenish hues instead since those tend towards looking pretty good against bright whites too!

Step 3: Don’t be afraid to sketch your designs ahead of time.

If you’re like me, and have been practicing for years, then you know that the more time you spend in front of a mirror working on your designs, the easier it gets to apply them. This is especially true when it comes to trying different tools or techniques. The more comfortable we are with our tools and application process, the better results we can expect from them!

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from all my years of mehndis being applied by hand (or sometimes even by machine), it’s this: practice makes perfect!

Step 4: Test out a design on a paper before moving to your hand or foot.

You can test out a design on paper before moving to your hand or foot. This will help you get an idea of how it looks, and if it’s comfortable. Then you can apply the same design on your skin without having to worry about whether it will look good or not!

When designing a design, try to put the mehndi on top of your palm first. This will test it out to see if you like how it feels. If not, try drawing another design in between two fingers instead! If both designs work well then congratulations! You’ve found one that works.

Step 5: Try using lemon sugar solution on your mehndi designs to keep them looking fresh for longer periods of time.

The lemon sugar solution is a mixture of lemon juice and sugar and can be applied to your mehndi designs for about an hour. This will keep them looking fresh for longer periods of time, especially if you have done some intricate patterns on the design.

The sugar in the solution will help keep your mehndi design from fading, and the lemon juice will act as an antiseptic in case there are any cuts or scrapes on your hands.

Step 6: Place a bit of lemon juice and sugar on top of the design

Maintain the depth of color by placing a bit of lemon juice and sugar on top of the design and wrapping it in parafin paper or baking parchment for about an hour, then turn on an oven at its lowest setting, place the wrapped hand/foot in the oven for 10 minutes before removing it and allowing it to cool down. Make sure you keep an eye on it, as leaving it for too long can cause the sugar to burn and create a nasty smell!

Step 7: Apply some wax or Vaseline around each finger 

Apply some wax or Vaseline around each finger so that your fingers won’t stick together when you’re done with them (this also helps keep them from rubbing off onto clothes). You can also use rubbing alcohol instead if you prefer less messy results but will still need plenty of patience because these things take time! Just be patient!

Step 8: Use steady pressure as you apply the paste to create straight lines

Relax, breathe deeply through your nose and use steady pressure as you apply the paste to create straight lines, then try making small overlapping dots all around the lines, which will create a lace-like pattern once you remove the excess paste with a cotton ball soaked in olive oil after letting it dry completely (about 30 minutes). If that isn’t enough detail for you, try creating your own designs by drawing freehand onto paper first before transferring them to whatever area needs embellishment!

Step 9: Use a cotton ball soaked in olive oil to remove excess paste

You can use a cotton ball soaked in olive oil to remove excess paste. Let it dry completely, then draw freehand onto paper and transfer the design to your skin by using an eyeliner pencil or fine-tip permanent marker. You can also create your own designs by drawing freehand onto paper first before transferring them to whatever area needs embellishment!

You don’t need to be a professional artist to create beautiful henna designs, but it does help if you have some experience drawing and sketching. With that said, anyone can learn how to make simple mehndi designs at home by following these steps:

Conclusion

These mehndi designs are simple and easy to do. You can try any of them and see whether they work for you or not. Try different combinations of colours and motifs, as well as change the pattern according to your style preference. Remember that everyone’s skin is different and so there will be no one-size-fits-all when it comes to mehndi designs here on earth!
