Glass dome/mini diorama
« on: May 24, 2021, 11:50:18 »
Hi everyone,
Here are some pictures of the glass dome I have in the living room. I try to change it regularly. It just makes me happy to have something playful in the living room  ;)

Those look great, that's a great way to do seasonal themes. I have a couple of apothecary jars I use in the winter, need to get some moss stuff to use them in the summer as well.

I absolutely love the idea of displaying Playmobil sets under glass dome displays (bell jars?).  :love: Very cute concept with a lot of possibilities!
We get up at twelve and start to work at one, take an hour for lunch, and then at two we're done.

Such a lovely idea to exhibit your favourite figures and accessories  :love:

I would not mind at all putting one these on a coffee table as they would undoubtedly be a topic of conversation and curiosity since Playmobil is a brand that speaks to everyone.

I love the way you set up these little beauties  :)

Thank you. It is really fun to plan and make the new displays.
As I don’t have a lot of playmobil I struggle to add some height to the displays.
The next one I want to make is either “feeding the ducks” or “walking the dog with grandpa and grandma”. I just don’t have any ducks or grandparents yet ;)

These are great. It reminds me of a set up they had in my preschool. I remember looking at the classroom display every day. The connection of playing with playmobil at home and seeing the display at school absolutely blew my mind... very cool idea for dioramas in the household!

What a great idea Elise! If you wanted to fill the height, could you get a tree in there?

Thanks. I think you can, but it would depend on the tree. My dome is 20 cm in diameter and the height is 30 cm. It would be best if the tree can be placed in the back and not in the middle.
Im gonna try of i can get a smaller tree on a rock in there.

Let me know if anyone is gonna try out the “glass dome diorama”. Looking forward to seeing it :)
