How to Make a Mini Modern Zen Garden

Looking for a beautiful modern and mini zen garden? Want to add a touch of green and a big splash of bright color to any space? I love to position unusual tropical and desert plants inside various containers to create small, fascinating worlds. And they’re simple and fun to create!

Did you ever make sand art as a kid–you know, where you poured layers of colored sand one by one into a clear glass or plastic vessel and then poked around the edges of the vessel to make designs? Well, this is kind of like the adult version of that because you get to pour and shift colored sand into place and make designs in it, but you get a chic result this time!

* A small glass bowl
* Colored sand
* A single small plant
* Potting soil

{These Are a Few of My Favorite Things}

For {My Favorite Things Party}, I purchased 5 Salted Caramel Cocoa Mixes with Marshmallows served in lidded glass jars and combined them with handmade additions! To personalize my gifts, I printed “These Are a Few of My Favorite Things” labels and secured them to the top of the jar lid. Then I made white & milk chocolate {Hot Cocoa Spoons} with sprinkles, and for a twist, I added hand-cut “YUM YUM” Beverage Stencils to dress up the drinks if they are made sans marshmallows! I love DIYs, big and small!
