Art-Making: Prayer Flags


Prayer flags are believed to bring happiness, long life, and prosperity to those who create them. Each color has a special meaning: blue/space, white/air, red/fire, green/water, and yellow/earth. Tibetan prayer flags can even be made with classes or groups and hung together to create a fun and peaceful environment!
