Magical Miniatures

If you love all things magical and miniature you are in the right place.

About me and my blog

I am a mother of three and work on a market stall. In my free time I love to make magical miniatures. It all started with my gran who spent hours when I was a child teaching me how to make do. This entailed mending and fixing and making things from scratch. My dolls house consisted of cardboard boxes with windows cut out, beautifully decorated and all furniture hand made. We sat for hours making clothes and accessories for my dolls to the envy of my friends that all had the same generic stuff. So thanks gran for the inspiration. I hope you enjoy my art and my blog. Thanks for visiting.

1.12 Rabbit hutch

After scaling a rabbit hutch down to 1.12 scale I set about making one from balsa wood. It worked out at 6 inches wide 2 inches deep and 4.5 inches high.
I made two boxes cutting a square hole in the bottom of the top box and adding a ladder leading into the bottom. On both floors I sprinkled sawdust. 
Using a piece of oven mesh I cut out a small piece to add to the door as the bars. The caged bottom will be oven mesh too.
