Step 1: 

Start with a handful of air dry clay.  Roll the clay into a tube.  Use your fingers to give the Mandrake some shape.  A small neck and body.

Step 2: 

Use your stir stick to give your Mandrake some texture.  Use the end of the stick to create his mouth.

Step 3: 

Use the point of a pen to give him some nostrils.  Here I am using black beads to create the eyes.  You can also use doll's eyes or ball top pins.

Step 4: 

Fill the top of the Mandrake's head with silk flowers and leaves.  You can push the plastic flowers directly into the clay.

Step 5: 

Paint the entire Mandrake with brown water color paint.

Step 6: 

After the brown paint has dried use a spray bottle to spray on green paint to give the Mandrake more texture.  You can also just brush small amounts of green onto the brown.

Step 7: 

Place a small amount of moss in the bottom of your terra cotta pot.

Step 8: 

Place your Mandrake on top of the moss in the pot.

Step 9: 

Download my .pdf from the Stats tab above.  Cut out a label.

Step 10: 

Use Mod Podge to adhere the label to the pot.  If you have sticker paper you can also print on that and simple apply the sticker.
