OK – Now you all have that song going through your head. It was hard not to think of it all the while I was making this project.
I don’t know what it is with me and bunnies lately, but I just have a lot of “bunny” ideas that I am thinking about. Maybe it has to do with the time of year me thinking ahead to warmer days.
This is a project that I am doing for the June issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine. The theme for the magazine is “summer” and it comes out late in spring. I thought it would be a great idea to make something that represented the warm and sunny months. I thought of flowers and gardening and what came to mind was the thought of fresh herbs that I used to buy at the farmer’s market in Annapolis Royal here in Nova Scotia all throughout the summer. So I decided to make a nice set of scroll sawn plant pokes.
Now these aren’t actually “bunny” silhouettes. They are all silhouettes of hares. I love the large ears and gawky, odd shapes of hares and I thought they would make fun little plant pokes.
I made a dozen of them, all in different shapes for 12 different herbs.
They are cut from ash, and I will admit, the lettering is quite a challenge:
But fear not – as usual I have some other versions of these cute little hares ready to be finished up today. The other versions will make things much easier for someone who is newer to scroll sawing to accomplish, yet I think the results is equally cute.
So that is it for today. I have to really get ‘hopping’ today and get to work. I promise to have several more pictures tomorrow with some fun and different looks to these handsome hares.
Happy Monday to you all! (And try not to hum that song today!)
