LITTLE FARM SIGN

Here is a cute little farm sign that I recently made.

I just made it for fun to hang up around the chickens and the cows.

I saw a similar one on Pinterest and I just kind of went with it.

I first painted the wood cutting board red and then I freehanded the words in pencil.
that way I could erase and try again if something was way off.

But overall I like how it turned out.

Happy crafting ya’ll,

MASON JAR BIRDFEEDER

I love Mason jars old and new.  And therefore I’m always looking for new everyday uses for them. And by looking on Pinterest I ran across this idea. A chick feeder, old jar and lid as a bird feeder!

For this easy bird feeder craft, all you need is:

-chick feeder base, approximately $3 at feed or animal stores
-A mason jar, new or old
-a metal or enamel lid
-E-6000 glue

Super simple. Just steady your lid upside down ((I sat mine in the feeder)) and squirt e-6000 glue on the bottom of you Mason jar.

Then sit the mason jar bottom onto the upside down lid to dry.

Drying takes about 24 hours to cure completely as this is strong glue.

Then after completely dry just flip it over and screw the jar into the chick feed base.

Now you can start to see that when we unscrew the base , we flip the jar and lid  top upside down to fill with birdseed.

The lid acts as a topper to keep the exposed birdseed dry and the handle on the lids makes for an easy way to hang.

Here it is hanging out on a shepherds hook.

And here it is over beside my little chicken coop. The bits and pieces of corn and seed that falls are soon found. (Look in the bottom right of the corner of next pic down.)

When I take it down to refill it, I have plenty of help from the Gerty, Myrtle and the girls.

My little chickens are so curious about anything I am doing.

I loved how simple and beautiful this craft turned out to be that I am also going to go ahead and use a chick feed waterer base to make a hummingbird feeder this same way.  Remember, in case you don’t know, you can’t use a chicken feeder base like this to hold hummingbird liquid. I tried! It all runs out! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by ya’ll! See ya’ next time.
