Hi friends, do you remember a couple of weeks ago when I showed you this tall chicken feeder I bought from my friend, Dolly’s Aunt Bunny?
She was kind of a plain Jane and I knew she needed something to make her a little bit fancy.
Well look at her now!
One of my favorite magazines is Country Gardens. It’s one of those that you never tire of no matter how old. I never throw an issue away.
It only comes four times a year. Every now and then I pull out back issues and just enjoy. While browsing through an old ‘2008’ issue I saw this. . .
Immediately I thought, that is just like my feeder only fancier. I had to give my girl a make over. I didn’t have a checkered board stencil so I cut a square out of cardstock with my large square punch and it worked great. I wasn’t going for perfection here. In fact, I wanted to be a bit imperfect.
I used what alphabet stencils I had so my lettering is a bit different.
Using stuff I already had around the house this project cost me chicken feed.
And who knew that Purina did more than feed cats and dogs?
I didn’t copy everything that was on the one in the magazine, but I love the new look!
It found a home on my wall behind the pergola next to a few other tin buddies.
What fun projects have you been doing lately?
I’ll be sharing with:
