Hen House and Rabbit Hutch

I decided to make a hen house and rabbit hutch on the left side of the house rather than a garden. I figured the girls would enjoy that more. All of my granddaughters so far seem to love the “putting things in things” aspect of a doll house. They want to fill the cupboards and shelves, put dolls into bed, place things in drawers and set the table. Now they can collect eggs and move bunnies from their hutch to the yard.

I am sure Helen will ask me how they family gets the eggs (because there is no path around the cliff). I already have the answer. I will tell her the fairies collects the eggs and feeds the bunny and chickens. They just fly over there πŸ˜‚

The nests are made from burlap that I took apart and cut into straw size pieces. To make the hutch door and windows, I used the mesh from the back of mosaic tiles I had left over from a decorating project. More recycling!

Today I am baking the polymer clay bunnies, finishing a few furniture pieces and making bedding for the twin beds. I have the day to myself, so I should be able to accomplish a lot!
