I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I wanted to try something completely different for the 13 Days of Halloween. I made this diorama for Smileyyogini. I used a 2 liter bottle, cut it in half and then built the scene underneath. The back of the bottle has a black tree and the crow sits on top where the mouth of the bottle is.

Love it! I have seen some pins with this clever bell cloche and thought them all amazing, yours is no exception. Very well done, bravo!

Wow, I would have never guessed that was a 2-liter bottle if you hadn't said so, it totally looks like a fancy glass dome (plastic is better anyway, as said glass domes are super easy to crack/shatter).  The diorama environment looks brilliant and the black crow is an awesome topper.  Where'd you get the little skeleton dudes from?  Did you paint them like that, or did they come that way?

Thanks all!

They came like that. They were little miniatures that I found at a little gift shop but I believe that they are the ones that Michael's carries.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
