DIRECTIONS:

    Note: Attach the natural items using hot glue. Attach bigger items with the Gorilla Glue®.
  1. Place all of the accessories on the cardboard piece without the green foam to figure out placement.
  2. Using a serrated knife and the green foam, cut the form of a rolling hill coming towards the viewer.
  3. Attach the green foam to the cardboard using the Gorilla Glue and the hot glue as well.
  4. Determine location of the barn and chicken coop.
  5. Glue down all of the base terrain, such as the mosses and sandy areas, first.
  6. Brush on tacky glue where the sand will be (fields). Then sprinkle the sand in those areas. Allow to dry overnight. Tip the layout over a wastebasket and gently tap off the excess.
  7. To make the riverbed, brush a good amount of tacky glue in the base of the river. Sprinkle stones, ICE and blue glass beads in the glue and allow it to dry. Once the river is dry, brush clear nail polish on top.
  8. For the pumpkin patch, glue the flat moss in the pumpkin field and press it as flat as possible.
  9. Snip the orange buds off the branch and glue them randomly with hot glue in the pumpkin patch.
  10. Snip off the cabbage heads and glue them in rows with hot glue.
  11. For corn stalks. snip off the little yellow ears from the branch of flowers. Glue 2 or 3 ears in at the base of the green plastic leaves to appear like stalks of corns. Place some of the ears by the chicken coop and in the bed of the pick up truck.
  12. Glue the accessories down with Gorilla Glue®, especially the heavier items.
  13. Place the white picket fence on the edge of the farm or follow along with the photo. Hang signs on the fence.
  14. Use the assorted mosses to nestle the items in the layout and surround the buildings as well.
