I love cherry blossoms and have wanted to have some kinda of different way of displaying my earrings. I love this up-cycled idea I've come up with for an old zen garden I no longer use.
Get your zen garden box.. rocks in the sand would be pretty cool.. I was going to do this but decided not to in the end.
Curl your branch so the resin will have something to grab onto.
I used a candle stick holder to keep my branch where I wanted it.
Now.. when I did this I put the sand in first instead of the resin.
I'd put the resin in FIRST if I were to do this again.. I found the resin did not soak into the sand as I had imagined.. but it would work better MUCH better the other way round.
If you don't fill it too high once the resin sets you can put another layer of sand on and it still functions as a Zen garden.
allow resin to set.. approx 24 hours before you start hanging things off of it.
