Guest Post! Preppy Girl on the Farm

(I have always wanted to live on a farm...for real).

it was different and am so happy
Angela agreed to share her project here!

Preppy Girl on the Farm
Hi 504 Main followers!! I am so thrilled to be here.
I am Angela, the Preppy Girl on the Farm.
I started the blog as a way to share my craft projects
but also my adventures and misadventures on the farm.
I hope you enjoy my project.
I know you have seen a million monograms but hopefully this one is a little bit different.
You will need a canvas, spray paint, a template for your monogram and some sandpaper. My template was chipboard and I just punched out all the H's.
So spraypaint your canvas. I chose a dark brown.
Let that dry and then tape your template onto the canvas.
You can then spraypaint or hand paint your letters.
Let that dry. I then sanded the canvas to give it a worn look.
To add a little something extra, I glittered one of the chipboard letters and hot glued it to the finished canvas. I always use Martha Stewart glitter. It has extra sparkle and comes in many great colors.
A fairly simple and inexpensive project.
I hope you'll join me at Preppy Girl on the Farm.
Thanks!
Angela
