Call of the sea diorama: by Zuzu

Hi there folks!

It's Zuzu here and its my turn to post a project on the blog.

I have made a diorama. It's pretty much 100% craft parts apart from the box which came free with 4 pairs of socks inside at Christmas.


I painted my box, inside and out then added some bits of stick as platforms on the sides and bottoms to make it easier to layer the craft parts. (you can use that 3D foam sticky tape or pads if you prefer).
I used some decorative flourishes for waves and simply started to layer the different parts on to each other to build up a 3D scene.

Flourishes (for waves)
Ship
Ships wheel
desert Island (Palm trees)

Mermaids

octopus
gull
fancy corners
dolphins

  2. so much detail, you could keep looking at it and seeing something you missed on the previous look. The colour of the background really brings the wood to life. Gorgeous as ever
