I have a rabbit habit. I purchase rabbits or bunnies when I shop. This includes miniature ones.
A club member shared with us patterns to make a two sided vignette in a dome. Initially I made the interior for something else. But I didn’t finish it. Then one day, I decided to build shelves and display my miniature rabbit collection.
This was the first one.
Having a Rabbit Habit (of buying more and more rabbits or do they just multiply?) I needed a place to display more, so I made a second one.
This time I took photos of the process.
The walls and floor are cut from insulation foam board. It is light weight, sturdy, and easy to cut with a sharp craft knife. A snap blade style is best.
The archway was a plastic piece we purchased. I didn’t add one to the second one.
The top of the outside edges have a decorative piece we made from clay. It has a rosette block made using the end of a ink pen for the indention.
The decorative pieces for the shelves were cut from a mdf decorative screen tile. The tiles were 12×12 inches and I cut them apart according to what I liked. Then they were sanded and painted white.
The rabbit doll came in pieces I had to assemble and then dress her. I made her friend from faux suede.

The beautiful thing about these shelves is nothing has to be permanent.
I have all these stuck using museum wax. It is easier to remove and also less visible since it is clear.
