How to Make DIY Miniature Winter Wonderland Zen Garden


This Christmas, Gocrafta has come up with a special gift, a unique Christmas craft idea, miniature winter wonderland garden.

Let’s start from the story behind this craft and then continue with a step by step tutorial.

As Christmas was just around the corner, My friends wanted to give something special to his girlfriend. My friend and I were browsing online shops to find the best Christmas gift. He liked the one “DIY Miniature Winter wonderland Zen Garden” but It was very expensive. I have suggested other gifts that fell under his budget but his mind was stuck on that previous one. He told me that I wish it was available at a low cost.

I replied, don’t worry. I will make the same for you by my art and craft creations. He said It is impossible to give the same texture and look with your art and craft talent.

Then I told him just wait and watch. After two days, finally, I made the same gift, winter wonderland garden, as he desired.
