Some Bunnies were......Killed and Maimed!

Do you ever see something on Pinterest or Instagram and think......I want one? Well I do (all the time) and sometimes there are numerous things preventing you from finding it, and buying it!

I saw this lovely post in Instagram and immediately fell in love with this bunny!

Now I know that I could look around and find something similar but I WANT this one! So I decided the best thing was to make it myself.
Lucky hubby has every conceivable power tool in the shed and I borrowed his jig-saw and sander and some spare timber.

I have to tell the truth.....bunnies were killed and maimed during this process! One lost his head and one lost his back legs, and one had a bite out of his back.......poor bunnies, sad bunnies!

Dead bunny bin! Will have a proper service later.

Anyway these couple survived the jig-saw massacre with some minor non life-threatening injuries. This one has a bite out of his but!

And this one lost his head, but thanks to a tube of liquid nails.....Ta Da! All better.

Hubby just shook his head when I showed him my latest handiwork! Seems I should have used ply and not pine. Apparently that's why some of the bits broke off! Oh well! Live and learn I guess.

Now to decide whether to hang this fine rabbit or to let him run free!

I love my bunnies!

Keep Creating.

  12. Hi Rosie♥
    I've been married since end of 1993 & still have the same wooden spoon, it's not going anywhere! Mind you, I only ever use it when making Spaghetti Bolognese.
