The Accidental Bunny

I had no intention to create a bunny. I was working on another project and had cut two teaspoons to use the upper parts. The leftover handles were laying on my worktable side by side and they just looked like a pair of bunny ears. I tried to continue my work on the other creature but those ears just screamed at me. All I could think was B-U-N-N-Y. Well, yes, I get distracted easily. With Easter being just around the corner, I had at least a good excuse to bring that bunny to life right away.

His name is GrEgg Hopper.

I found a pocket watch case in my stash that had the perfect size to become the head. Once he had a head, GrEgg started to have a mind of his own. He wanted a nose piercing. Can you believe it? Personally, I’m not a big fan of poking holes in other body parts than ears but I wasn’t able to talk him out of it. Here you go, bunny.

 A paint brush was certainly mandatory. GrEgg went to work instantly and painted some eggs to live up to his name. I’m so glad he helps me decorating for Easter.
