Good Morning Everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful Saturday morning.
While I was checking out some of my favorite crafting blogs I came across a very cute Halloween Diorama made by Dina Concienne which you can find HERE. She actually made one using a video project by Jim the Gentleman Crafter which you can find HERE. Please go and check both of their blogs out, they are incredible crafters.
Anyway I liked them so much I decided I needed to make one for my grandkids. I bought most of the items from Michaels the craft store. I used a Tiddly Inks Digital called Trick or Treat Wrens which you can find HERE. This project was very time consuming to make but I loved crafting it.
The following pictures show you:
1. The front with the lid on.
2. Looking from the top down.
3. Taking the top off and looking inside.
4. Looking into the hole from the front to see the inside.
Here it is...and oh yea I am going to enter it into the Tiddly Inks weekly challenge "Halloween" which you can find HERE. Hope you like it!

You can see from the picture of the inside that all that is in there is a black xmas tree, a black bird in a cage tag, a battery powered tea light, a black fence and three different sizes of the pumpkin cut from Peek a Boo Bug by Tiddly Inks. I left my floor painted black but you could put paper on it if you wanted. It really looks cute when you turn the big lights off and turn on the tea light inside the diorama.
