DIY Zen Garden

Life can be quite stressful at times, but finding ways to unwind at the end of the day is vital! One of my favorite new ways to decompress is to play with my zen garden. Today, I will show you how to make your own zen garden using a shadow box (or picture frame), sand, twigs and more. This zen garden really helps me meditate and mindfully get over any aches and pains.

Here’s what you’ll need for this project:
  • shadow box frame
  • sand
  • faux succulent
  • handful of twigs
  • hot glue & glue gun
  • decorative white stones

Start by filling the shadow box frame with the sand. I chose blue sand, but you can select natural (beige) sand or another color of your choice. Shake the shadow box gently to evenly spread out the sand.

Using the hot glue, attach pieces of the twigs together to form a little rake for the garden. Please see the blog post for the details on how I made this rake!

Add the decorative white stones to the box. Begin dragging the rake through the sand to make an interesting pattern.

It’s quite fun (and very relaxing) to move the succulent and stones around the box. Creating different designs is actually quite rewarding! Please visit the blog post for more details and tips on how to make this Zen Garden.
