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,

FIVE ON FRIDAY from the lil’ FARM

Linking up today with FIVE on FRIDAY to share a few random pics of my lil’ ole’ farm life.
Here’s to the farm life ya’ll.
I welcome 6 new baby Bantam (we call Baneys) chicks on May 30, 2016!  

I watched ole’ Large (I named 3 of them Small, Medium and Large) play “kick the can” with a plastic bucket for about 15 minutes or so before tiring of it.

I was elated when a roll of hay that got away from me ended up FINALLY stopping on a section of barbed wire fencing.  Otherwise it would’ve went all the way down in the creek. Shew~

I watched as a single deer checked on the progress of the grapevines as I done the morning dishes.

And most off all, throughout the week, I stayed happy despite having to put up with a lot of…..

I hope you enjoyed my week all wrapped up in pics! And thanks much to Amy over at FIVE on FRIDAY for hosting the linkup!
See ya’ll next time,

RUSTY HORSESHOE CRAFTS and BARBWIRE WREATH

Hey ya’ll. I’ve been super busy the last month and a half with new calves on my lil’ farm. This is all new for me and wow at the things you learn.  But anyways this is leading up to my new craft post today using old rusty things on the farm.

I have tons of ole rusty horseshoes around not because I’ve had horses but because I love rusty farm stuff.

So when putting up a new wooden door for the calves I thought about making a sign that said COWS but by using the horseshoes as letters. Here’s how I started.

I just laid them out and moved them around until they started looking like the letters I needed. I just loved tge big fat one I had for a c.

I used medium sized wood screws and screwed them into the door.

And then came the “s.”  I got it but it doesn’t look as good as the other letters.

But I got it the best I could.

The s is just the best I could get it but I’m sure the cows wont mind.

And then I needed to make something to fill the space around it.  So I wanted a rusty wreath made of barbwire. So for me I just went over in an old field and cut some. But if you don’t have any, maybe you can ask around or buy a new roll of wire, and spray paint it rusty brown.

Here I just made a few circles with it and then screwed it straight to the door.

And for one last sign for the side of the lil ole barn, here’s what I made.

I did finally wash off the MOO sign later. I screwed it to a piece of 2×6 then to the wall. But fir the word COWS I just screwed each letter to the wall individually.
