Arts and crafts projects come in all shapes and sizes, from the biggest masterpiece to the tiniest work of art. And I'm hard pressed to find tinier than these gorgeous miniature dioramas that are bursting with charming details and impressive craftsmanship. 

Looking for some artistic inspiration for your own projects? Check out our guide to the best acrylic paints to follow this beautifully realistic eye painting tutorial.

The stunning dioramas, created by YouTube user Hanabira工房, are built into small plastic display cases and resemble tiny apartment rooms. Each room is swimming with handmade details that really bring them to life, from minuscule fridges packed with food to a tiny TV that actually works! You can find new delightful details to discover the more you look at them. Watch the whole step-by-step process in the video above if you're wanting to make your own detailed masterpiece (or just sit back and enjoy the magic as it comes to life).

Clocking in at over an hour long, the video is also a win for creative ASMR fans (like me). Hanibara's channel is packed full of other creative projects too, so you certainly won't be short on crafting inspiration. Just make sure you're armed with the best acrylic paintbrushes to get started.
