making ocean dioramaMartha Stewart has a few beach and Ocean Diorama ideas, transforming sardine tins into adorable 3D miniature worlds. So if you plan on making an ocean diorama, look for a container in the food pantry. Or how about a shoe box? "Conceiving a diorama is an adventure in scale and spatial relationships," Martha says. "Choose a container, then put yourself in the shoes of one of its future inhabitants." Start your diorama box with the background. Martha glued maps onto cardboard, then glued them inside the tins. She cut waves from blue paper, added shells, twigs, toy birds, floating fish, a lighthouse, and a little bit of net too, sprinkled some sand and attached rope.
