DIY Mini Zen Garden

DIY Zen Garden @themerrythoughtI remember being fascinated by mini zen gardens when I was younger. Somehow I never had one of my own though. When I stumbled across an image of a little kid playing in a mini zen garden recently, I knew I needed to make a version to have at my apartment. I added some tiny geodes and crystals that I am just in love with! It looks beautiful sitting on a desk or coffee table. Plus, of course, taking the time to comb through the sand and reorganize everything is super relaxing.
DIY Zen Garden @themerrythoughtWhat you need:
-Crystals (I bought mine here.)
-Little Knick-knacks
-Mini Rake (I made mine out of scrap wood and skewers. Just cut skewers to size, drill holes the size of the skewers, and the glue in place.)

Add some sand to the dish and the organize as desired. Simple as that!

    I have always wanted to make a zen garden, but just never did it for some reason! After seeing yours, I definitely want to do it! I really love your use of black sand. Thanks so much for the tutorial! Yours came out so beautiful.ReplyCancel

    My brother gave me a mini zen garden a few years ago, I’d love to set it up again in the future. I love it. The black sand looks gorgeous.ReplyCancel
