Everyone loves the voyeuristic effect of a diorama. It makes it more precious somehow- more cinematic. Well, this is sort of a cross between a snow globe and a diorama with one peep hole into the tiny world where you can create the lovely scene. It's a simple and inexpensive project to turn everyday household jars into magical objet d'art.
|Awoooooo! He's was $1 at Puzzlezoo on Main Street. A baby wolf, waiting for mommy to return from the hunt.|
|Add an oval sticker to the inside of the pickle jar.|
|And to the same place on the outside making sure that they are in the exact same place on either side of the glass.|
|Make trees into mini-trees.|
Spray paint the inside of the jar gold (or whatever color you choose), spray paint the outside black chalk-board paint. When painting the outside make sure to close the lid or the black will get inside the jar.

|Then add your little feature. Again with hot glue.|
|Model Magic around it to cover the base.|
|Add rhinestones or a ribbon to cover the edge of the paint if it isn't perfect.|
|I'm using Tulip rhinestones for this. Have fun!|
