For supplies gather:
soil, tiny rocks, moss and sand--most you can get at a craft store.
oven-baked polymer clay
To begin-- I layered the glass starting with the sand then tiny rock pebbles, then soil. Then you add the succulents. Cover your layers with moss. Add tiny rocks for variation on the moss.
Follow the directions for the oven-baked polymer clay. We used a knife and toothpick to create little mushroom tops and fairy-like houses. Really didn't do much detail on the houses...just made them tiny to fit in the jar. My kids did most the work, so this is a fun project for children to do and keep them busy!
After you cook the clay pieces, add to the terrarium and your village is set to fool the leprechauns! My kids now want to add a little ladder and a pot of gold.
