Find some zombie finger puppets at your local craft or Halloween store.  This craft also works with any small Halloween figure that will fit in your container.

If you don’t already have tons of these little zombies laying around your house like I do, you can order them from Amazon.  (search Zombie Finger Puppets Halloween or Glow Finger Zombies)

Zombie Diorama materials

Box or container – I used an old square tin
Zombie finger puppet or other figure
Glue/Hot Glue
Paint (to match your glitter color)
Paint brush
Optional- picture hanger

Step one – paint your container in several layers of paint to cover completely.

When the paint is dry spread a layer of glue on the entire inside of the container and then dump some glitter in there.

Shake the glitter around to cover all sides.  Let dry.

Glue on a picture hanger if you want to hang your diorama.

Use your glue gun to glue your zombie in place.  You will want to put him towards the front so his hands can hang out of the container.  It’s much more realistic this way 🙂
