  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Buy a few succulent plants (Walmart)

    Step 2

    Buy a large jar (Walmart)

    Step 3

    Put layers of sand or rocks and top with dirt...then plant your succulents :)

    Step 4

    Add your little animals and/or houses etc...

    Step 5

    Turn it around and add more in the back so it's interesting on all sides :) water only occasionally when soil is very dry. Succulent plants store water in their leaves and therefore need little care.

    Step 6

    Place in a focal point and enjoy your creation :) ...maybe change the scene with the thanksgiving add a small turkey or native Americans, at Christmas add Santa & reindeer...etc
