Model Clay is an easy medium to work with to clay sculptures like this Kawaii Tree Model clay craft.  Kawaii means "cute" in Japanese.  Kawaii became a known word just like "nippon" would be recognized as 'japanese'. Anything that looks like it could be from Japan has the adjective "Kawaii" as a descriptive stylization of a form of art. 
For this project you need the following materials:
1.  Air dry Model Clay (3 different greens and a brown)
2. Bendable soft wire (bone structure of the tree)
3.  Wooden base ( I used a heart)
4.  CHARMS - assorted
