DIY Farmhouse Sign & Cricut Supply Giveaway

Farmhouse style decor is one of the hottest trends in home decorating at the moment. We live in a farmhouse on a farm, so it kinda makes sense for us. I also have a growing collection of family heirlooms and antiques, that fit in with that style. I’ve been adding farmhouse style signs to our house one at a time. This is my first farmhouse style sign tutorial, and I’ll be adding the others that I’ve designed and made in the next few weeks. This DIY Farmhouse Sign just requires a few supplies and less than an hour to finish. I’ve also partnered with several other Cricut bloggers to feature some of our projects, and to give away a box of Cricut supplies. The complete details are at the bottom of this post.

Don’t fret too much about your design being absolutely perfect. I’ve never seen an antique wooden sign that was. You can also lightly distress it if desired. I used milk paint, so my version also has a rustic look. Milk paint dries very fast and it has a pretty finish; I love using milk paint.
