Project #119: Winter Forrest Diorama
An easy craft to make with a cardboard box, duct tape and washi tape.
What you’ll need:
* Exacto Knife
* Paper (any color)
* Washi Tapes
* Duct Tape
* Cardboad box or shoe box
* Toys …example wood animals
Step 1: Pick out a cardboard box for the forrest scene and a thinner box (I used a shoe box) for the trees and other wooded accessories.
Step 2: Cut the cardboard into any scene you would like, I chose to make a snowy mountainous forrest scene.
Step 3: Cover the front and back of the cardboard diarama in white duct tape.
Step 4: Cut out and cover the trees and the mushrooms in washi tape (you could make flowers and animals too). I left little tabs at the bottoms of the trees and mushrooms so that I could attach them to the diorama.
Step 5: Decorate the forrest diorama however you would like with duct tape, washi tape, and paper. I used washi tape to make snow caps and a pond. Attach the trees and mushrooms with small strips of duct tape. I also used small strips of duct tape to fasten the trees to the mountain. You’re finished!
My children had so much fun playing with the diorama and it makes a great home for all of our wooded forrest animals. This will make a great holiday decoration too.
