2. For the City Roads: Using a foam paintbrush and black paint, pant a curved road across the grass. Use a narrow brush and white paint to create road hashes.

3. For the City Pond: Glue the glass marbles around the pond area. Once dry, pool Mod Podge into the pond area, sink the seed beads into the Mod Podge. Allow to thoroughly dry.

4. For the People: paint the bodies of the people with a rainbow of colors.

5. For the Cars: paint the cars with metallic paints.

6. For the Trees: Paint the cones with Christmas Green. Once dry, sponge kiwi paint onto the cones in a random pattern. Glue a pom pom to the top of the cone.

7. For the Mini House: Glue the carton closed. Paint with three coats of yellow paint. Cut a roof, windows and a door from felt. Use craft glue to attach.
