Merry Christmas – Awesome Diorama with tricks

December 25, 2011

Merry Christmas, specially for those of you celebrating these days! Besides merry wishes, I would like to show you this awesome “Christas Diorama” I found some weeks ago and share with you some of the tricks this smart builder made (this is not our work)


Christmas Diorama - Tree made with roots

How about this tree? Check it out and have a thought about it. I had to stare at it for while and still couldn’t find out what it was – until my girlfriend pointed out that it is a root. However, I cannot tell you which you kind of root it is.

This guy was pretty ambitious about his work – he even made an entire town and a mountain behind it! All you see is in some scale close to 1/25. As you may have noticed, this guy wasn’t much into cars, though. I like the fact that he put different kind of lights behind some windows – this small detail gives the diorama more realism. The houses are made out of some kind of clay – can’t really tell you what it is, but it looks pretty real!

Christmas Diorama Rocks made with wood

The hillside is made of tree bark – and although tree barn isn’t really rock, somehow it gives the whole diorama a realistic look. Somehow, you could get Christmas feeling by watching it.

For the snow, you can use some icing sugar. You should previously apply some spray glue on the surface you want to have snow on by holding the spray in a downwards direction.

Merry Christmas everyone!

As a web site owner I think the material here is really magnificent. I appreciate it for your time. You must maintain it and keep it up forever! Excellent work.

I’m guessing the diorama replicates the Swiss or Italian Alps. Architecture just isn’t quite right for the way I remember southern Germany. If you know the locale please post.
I had forgotten how they put rocks on the roof to hold things down in winter Alpine winds.
Now who would’ve thought of an upside-down root to make a tree. Genius.
