Diorama Accessories

Dioramas are great and I love them. You can probably tell by all the stuff I have here on my website. And I have a whole lot of tutorials on how to make them from scratch . But, you can buy some really neat accessories to make your diorama spectacular. It all depends on the theme but here are some great accessories in different themes including medieval, forest, rainforest, farm, and ocean..

People and figures

One of the first places you might want to look if you want various types of people and animals for your diorama is in the model railroad world. There are a few different scales so you can get figures in different sizes.

HO Scale figures - These figures are less than an inch in size. The scale is 1/87 so the miniature people are 1/87th human size . More here on the amazon website:. HO Figures as Terrarium Accents

YOUNG TRAVELLERS - PREISER HO SCALE MODEL TRAIN FIGURES 10113

I like these, they are very appropriate for terrariums because they are little backpackers. Creates the illusion that they are traveling through your terrarium forest!

 

Bachmann Trains City People with Motorcycle

 

O Scale _ This is a larger scale for trains. It can vary a bit but typically O scale is 1/48 size.

SceneMaster O Scale Figure Sets - People Sitting

This particular set is kind of neat because you can put them on a little bench in your terrarium.

Bonsai style accents

Bonsai growers have been making and using little accents for centuries. We can borrow from this idea and give our diorama a nice feel of the orient.

Fairies and Figurines and Miscellaneous Others

FLORAL FAIRY

You can get various figurines in different sizes. Faeries are often terrific for terrariums. Just choose something of a suitable size.
