Default mini x-pen - make or buy?

Anyone have any suggestions on how I could make a pet exercise pen?

I'll try to attach a photo of a full size one. Has anyone ever seen a mini one for a dollhouse?

Never seen one but a few suggestions. You could use fence panels, for example the miniature horse figurine ones. I am sure there are different brands but not sure what size they are. You could make one from wire either superglued or soldered together. Get some of that plastic canvas (for embroidery) and cut out lots of the squares until you have your fence panel shapes (if that makes sense). Also there are lots of types of wire mesh on Ebay. That might be a good option.

Great suggestions, shannon. Thank you!

I do know what you mean with the embroidery canvas. That could work. I'm also going to check the mesh on ebay.

Yippee! Look what I stumbled across at -- of all places -- Big Lots!
They had this with the "Fairy Garden" stuff in the seasonal section.

Oh, and I realize this doesn't quite go with my victorian theme, but I have a house rabbit, so this is a nod to bunnies.

Perfect! And perhaps it is a present day home with owners that have retained all the original decor??
