DIRECTIONS:

  1. Create the hillside for the gazebo to sit at the top at the back corner. Cut the green foam to resemble the profile of a hill with the highest point in the back corner of the long side of the foam piece. Slope it downward to create the idea of going down the hill towards the swing. Hot glue it in place in the bottom of the tray. Make a flat space in the foam for the gazebo and another area for the brick patio.
  2. Paint the chipboard or cardboard with the brick red paint and allow it to dry. Using scissors, cut out little bricks and glue them in rows individually to create a patio.
  3. Glue the flat moss, varying the two different colors of green around the base of the garden.
  4. Using the glue gun, nestle bushes and blooming purple and white flowers around the patio and gazebo, varying the sizes of round mosses and clumps of flowers.
  5. Cut out of the green block foam where the fountain will be.
  6. Place glue where the path from the gazebo to the patio and the fountain will be. Sprinkle the stones on the glue path and allow it to dry.
  7. Glue the fountain in place using hot glue.
  8. Cut the birch sticks to the size of the steps and glue them in place.
  9. Cut the round shaped moss in clumps like bushes and nestle them around the patio, gazebo and steps to soften the transitions.
  10. Clip small white flowers and randomly glue them to appear as though they have naturally bloomed.
  11. Glue the gazebo, fairy, patio furniture and swing in the desired locations.
