Diorama in empty iPhone box

Bearbeitet: Apr. 22, 2019, 12:20pm

Alas, one of the flowers in the vase has broken off already. Not sure if I can fix it.

Anyway, iPhone box with a vase made from a bead, faux snakeskin fabric of the floor, and flowers and chandelier made from seed pods I found outside. I had great fun making it!

It's interesting to look at, but it also looks very fragile. Where will you display it? What is the pinkish/salmon colored thing in the corner, and is it the same thing on the wall? I wish I had the dexterity to do such things.

You need a puppy, or maybe a kitten, to "help" you with this. :-}

The only fragile parts are the seed pods, because their stems are so thin. I'm going to experiment with strengthening them with clear epoxy or something. The rest is not particularly fragile as it's all super-glued down. The two hexagons are glass tiles. The little thing on the floor in the left corner is part of some old electronics.

Because of my cats, this will have to be displayed in my barrister bookcase, where all fragile things in my house go to live....

Lovely. Of course I would be trying to add a bookcase or a tapestry to the wall behind the vase. Just because we don't have empty walls in our house.

If you can't mend the flower, think about gluing the broken bit to the floor under the vase. Real life flower arrangements lose petals that then lie artistically around the vase.

Box diorama with bookshelf, made as a gift for my library director upon her retirement. All the books come out of the shelf and open up individually (although they don't have actual book content on the pages -- they're made from magazines).
