Not everyone knows how to keep a plant alive but even those black thumbs deserve to relax and achieve a state of zen and a Cardboard Bonsai Tree is an amazing solution. Create your own zen garden using basic materials just like s4loking at Instructables did, and you won't be spending a fortune to get a little peace of mind.
The tree base is made up of layers of cardboard stacked on top of each other artistically to create the gnarled, twisted branches of the bonsai tree. The foliage can be made from anything including flowers, leaves or paper and the garden is a box filled with sand and a few stones.
Making and tending to your Cardboard Bonsai Tree will let your mind relax.
