This week I have focused most of my energy on sewing costumes for a play and making a Peep diorama the Pioneer Press Peep Diorama contest.
I teamed up with my friend Sara who has a blog and is committed to diorama greatness.
So this week I thought I'd write about how to make an awesome diorama.
Step 1: Pick a dramatic subject. We picked MacBeth since that is what is running on the stage next door and there is fake blood.
Step 2: Gather materials. We used a box, fabric, a small box from the recycling bin, model magic, doll hair and parts, gum wrappers, foil paper, a paper clip container, stage blood, hot glue and of course Peeps.
Step 3: Prepare the diorama. This includes marking where your big set pieces will go as well as any painting you may want to do to the interior or exterior of the diorama.
Step 4: Build set and costumes.
Step 5: Add Peeps and Props starting from the back of the diorama and working forward.

Step 6: Do not neglect the outside of the diorama. Cause really if you've spent all this time on the inside don't you want the outside to be just as great?
Step 7: Professionally light the finished product and take photos.
