I have seen some gorgeous altered mouse traps over on Pinterest, so decided to have a go myself.
This was my 4th attempt...and my 4th mouse trap!
The tutorials on You Tube all show ( well the ones I watched did ) that you have to remove the wires on the trap...which I did easily to be fair...the drawback was putting it all back together again, ok some bits don't really have to go back, but tapping back the bits I needed caused the cheap wooden base to split, then I had one where I couldn't re-attach the piece that holds the main spring in place because the end of the u-nail piece was blunt and didn't go back correctly....so in the end (at this point I was slowly losing the will to live,lol ) on the last trap I left most pieces in place and worked around them...and this is the result
Would love to see you enter my challenge...you can find it here at
