I used a knitting needle to clean the roots and closed scissors to push the soil down. once the grass was as I liked, I lay in a fake leaf I picked up off the floor near one of the fake trees it fell from but you can use a felt leaf or something leaf shaped or even a rock for this part. I just pushed it in with the help of my scissors since my hand would not fit inside the jar.
Lastly the fairy, I chose a feathered fairy I made last year but no longer had a spot to hang it, cut the string off I'd used to hang it by and gently with the help of the knitting needle (I didn't want to accidentally cut Miss Fairy in half with my scissors) I arranged her and her feathery dress so it looked as if she lay sleeping on a fallen leaf hidden in the grass.

This fairy was made with thin copper wire, beads, pink feathers and crinkle plastic paper.
Disclaimer;The fairy was created using my fly tying skills learned years ago in a program to teach kids the basics on fly tying. Okay so I took what, an hour or an hour and a half class like ten years ago so I'm not an expert or anything. I've never been fly fishing in my life but I should still have my fishing pole for it. The closest I ever came to was practicing in the yard on how to cast. For some reason I never got around to actually trying it back when I was into the idea.
