What do you make with an old candle holder, a dollar store sweet tart tin, a broken bracelet, some toothpicks, a marble found under the couch, and two smooth rocks? A zen garden, duh. The rake is two sharpened tooth picks, the asian charm thing on the closed lid is from an old charm bracelet, and the images were googled and mode podged on.

When I began doing this in science class once, my classmates asked me what I was doing. I told them I was raking the sand. I guess they didn't hear me right, since they all thought I said "raping the sand." Now there are messages in my yearbook saying, "Stop raping the sand!" Try explaining that one to my mother.

I have 2 questions...    Stupid as they may be, I must know.  Your little rake is made of 2 toothpicks, but what's holding them?   And the sand in your little tin...   If the tin gets tumped over, but the lid is snapped shut, do any grains of sand spill or seep out at all??   Very cute idea btw!!  I love it!

I tried gluing the toothpicks, but that didn't work. So, they're taped toghether. And yes, some sand spills out, so I am careful with it. And thanks!
