Halloween Dioramas

This Halloween there is something new that I have seen popping up everywhere and I am beyond excited...Halloween Dioramas!
With shops carrying tiny fairy-like Halloween goodies and simple DIY sources online this will be a fun craft for adults and kids to get into. From spooky to sweet, here are a few that caught my eye.

Pumpkin Dioramas

Shadow Box Diorama

The great thing about dioramas is they are made of tiny things so you can use inexpensive knick-knack figurines, scrapbooking supplies, simple paint on paper or cardboard, or even outdoor materials from your own yard...or in my case local park. Here are some already carved out paper mache pumpkins from Pottery Barn Kids you could use.

I found a lot of supplies perfect for Halloween dioramas online at Joann Fabrics.
