Hello dear readers,
For a long time, I wanted to make a little Zen garden miniature but somehow didn't find the right time to do it. One of Birgit's Christmas 2020 gifts was a tiny Budha which is perfect for this kind of project. (Thank you again dear Birgit). Searching for inspiration I found many photos of miniature Zen gardens. I picked three photos out of several on the net in order to decide which one I like best.
Of the three, I like the middle one best although it'll be more difficult to make. (Especially the stone burner.) It will be a challenge and I'll have to try hard to do one similar to this.
I intend to make it a vignette, and already cut and glued up a wooden box for one of the four wooden frames in my stock.
Size of the box 12.5 cms width, 9 cms. length. 4 cms. depth. Made from popsicles and tongue depressors wooden sticks, glued to cardboard and cut to size.
Four ladies at the home center are following my tutorial for making a real-size toilet rolls holder from burlap fabric embroidered with wool. I spent a few hours making a model and finished it. It will keep them occupied and happy for a few days.
Meanwhile, I'm planning the next miniature for them to make after they finish this.
I'm going to make a miniature one like this for the dolls' bathroom.
I wish all my followers and readers an enjoyable, well-deserved summer vacation. Stay safe and happy. Blessings!
