While cruising the net I came upon these cute bunny weather vanes.
Sooooo the next best thing is to make one.
this one is from the CRAFTY SISTERS
I found this sight here and went about following the instructions.
I went to the graphic fairy sight and copied this
I set off to the
copier shop and had my graphic enlarged to
17 1/2" a little smaller than the Crafty Sisters.
Then I went to my wood supplier Mr. dh and asked for a piece of 1" pine.
I had the doweling from other projects .
I also had a finial that was left over from another project.
Now for the block of wood. Mr. dh to the rescue.
Is this what you need , he said. Perfect.
All that's left to complete my stand is another piece of wood
that would act as a base.
No need, Mr dh added a frame around the outside of the block of wood.
Next is to stain, then let it dry. Don't be in a hurry.
Time to assemble. The finial still had a screw in it, so I screwed it to the block
of wood. Mr dh drilled a hole in the top for the 3/8 doweling to fit and then drilled
a hole in the bunny.
Glue the doweling to the bunny. Let dry.
I diluted my paint by half with water then applied it all over.
I found that made it too light. So I added more paint to the mixture till I was pleased
with the result.
My own Bunny Weather Vane. Just in time for Easter.
Thanks to the Crafty Sisters and their tutorial.
Have a great day!
