Hand Carved Bunny Frames

A few weeks ago I found some plain wooden frames in a thrift shop and decided to liven them up with some bunny carvings... Here they are! And they are available in my etsy shop. To see how they came to be, keep on reading...


I use a bunch of different chisels but the ones that I use the most were hand-made for me by my grandpa, the coolest man in the world.

Plain frames...

light pencil drawing. Decided later to get rid of the flowers.


Always looks messy at first...



Looking better...

Carving is finished!

Many light coats of white paint and sanding in between layers.

Then some very light colour, ivory for the frame, light fawn brown for the bunnies, pale pink for the noses and white for their cotton-tails. Then another sanding of the entire frame, a few coats of varnish for protection (and makes them very easy to clean) and they're finished!


If you like what you see, you can visit my etsy shop. And if you like the frames but would like a different design/animal, just send me an email.
