Create beach-inspired luminaries to serve as table centerpieces. Prepare a luminary for each table by filling a plastic or tin beach bucket (without handles) about three-fourths full of play sand. Place a narrow candle in the center of each bucket so that the candle is safely embedded in the play sand
This is a homemade miniature Zen Garden made from a picture frame, some sand and round aquarium river stones and a candle. A bamboo back scratcher as a rake and voila! A Zen Garden for your bedroom or dorm room. You can get even fancier by buying a small Bonsai tree or one of those battery powered Zen fountains at Wal-Mart for $10.00 and add the soothing sound of trickling water to your garden. Sam.
