Building a diorama

considering my new budget of zero, I guess on the rainy days (or lazy evenings) this summer I'll be making a diorama centered around a covered bridge.
Here's my available materials:
  • Covered bridge (obviously)
  • A couple dozen trees
  • Some coarse grass, probably enough to cover a square foot.
  • Acrylic paints:
  • country tan
  • grey
  • green
  • red
  • blue
  • violet
  • white
  • black
  • yellow
  • and a few small tubes of other various colors
  • Plenty of foam and packing peanuts.
  • Lot's of glue (unfortunately it's mostly "Elmers school glue"), but some carpenters wood glue, craft glue (dries clear).
  • Various size talus
  • Aquarium stones painted grey to look like large boulders and rocks
  • Match sticks
  • BBQ bamboo skewers
Somehow with just these materials and whatever other scraps I can find I'd like to build a little scene where the bridge can be removed without destruction or the entire scene could be placed on a future layout.

Advice is welcome.
