This short video demonstrates how to draw a simple pretty floral design in henna. This is one of my most popular designs for young girls at school fairs and other events. As you can see from this video it is very quick to do which is really useful as very young children don’t like to sit still for too long!
This design is more complex than “Henna Tutorials How to draw a simple flower #1”. It gives you the opportunity to practice getting a smooth variation in line thickness by squeezing the cone harder in certain parts of the line (outer parts of the outer petals). This design also shows you how to incorporate a simple tiny leaf pattern which is created with the ‘squeeze hard for a bit’ technique.
You could embellish it by placing a jewel in the middle and sprinkling glitter on the finished design.
There is a 10 second gap at the beginning to give you chance to get your henna cone ready, and I have not included music, dialogue or subtitles with this video. I am using a small hand template to show how the design fits on to a small hand, but the same design would work just as well on a larger or adult’s hand.
I’d love to know what you think, and also what other videos would you like to see?
If you’d like to have a go at this design yourself, why not buy some henna from my shop?
