    You're just going to plop these into your jar at the very first bottom base, and then once you're done pop them down.

    Your second layer is going to be your Moss, I'm using a Spanish Moss, I don't really know if it makes any difference, but this is extremely hard to put a part.
    So I am going to be stuffing that as a second layer.
