This is my first instructable. Finally! I have enjoyed the instructables site so much-and now it is time for me to contribute!

Well, it is not even an instructable-just photos of what me and my kids made during this week's holiday. I might post a step by step instruction later, but a lot of it is kind of self explanatory. Just use cardboard, glue and paint in the most clever way you can think of. And a few other materials maybe.

I would like to say that is my kids who have made it. But it is not really true. They watched (partly) and I made it. Not sure I am really comfortable with being a 43 -year old diorama maker. But hey! It was fun!
<p>I love this; thanks so much for sharing and have a splendorous day!</p><p>sunshiine</p>
Thanks for the nice comments! The &quot;fire&quot; is made from melt-glue that I pulled slightly into flames. The &quot;shields&quot;were casted in glue in an emty chocholate praline casing. As they broke coming out of the form, we decided to make &quot;used&quot; shields... The house is all cardboard. The trick is to finish it of with some very watery black color that seeps into cracks and makes it look grimy and realistic.
<p>The overall diorama looks so realistic, and the little details (chips in wood, etc.) are really well done! *awe*</p>
<p>That is awesome! I would love to see a step by step if you get one up sometime! All the details are just amazing and I'd love to see how you did it all :)</p>
