Harry Potter inspiration sparks stonemason diorama

December 17th, 2012

Here at The Dolls House Emporium we enjoyed the dark humour of this Creative Competition entry.

Using The Corner Shop it was based around a coffin-maker and stone masons’ workshop – with some of the workers trying the goods out for size!

Ann Ashcroft, from Lancashire, gained inspiration from making Harry Potter-type miniatures for her grandsons.

Ann says: “All the family had an input in my coffin makers/stone yard.

“My seven-year-old grandson did the stippling on the wall, my grand-daughters doing the graffiti on the back wall. We all had a lot of fun and lots of laughs.

“The coffins are made from wood, cardboard, balsa wood and bass wood, as are the gravestones.

“Small pieces of stone were in the reduced tin at the local DIY store.

“In all it hasn’t cost very much but provided hours of fun during the wet summer holidays.”
