    If desired, lightly spray the moss with spray adhesive and sprinkle with glitter. Gently shake off excess glitter. 

  • 4 Spritz trees with ink

    Wear disposable gloves and add a few drops of ink to the top and bottoms of the trees. Spritz again and tip the tree so the ink will saturate it. Add more ink for a darker color. Use paper towels to blot and clean up any spills.

    Arrange the trees, animals and fairies inside the orbs and glue in place. 

  • 6 Arrange moon light up

    Feed the moon light up from the back and arrange inside the orb. Tuck the battery pack into the grapevine.
