This craft tutorial shows you how to make a farmhouse milk crate decoration using basic supplies from the Dollar Tree store.
What you need
8 x Paint Sticks
2 x Chopping Boards
2 Picture frames
1 x broom Handle or dowel
Black of brown paint for aging
Black Paint or milk SVG file
Start by removing the glass from your picture frames. Line up your pieces and measure your wooden paint sticks and make any cuts that are required. Cut and measure the broom handle also.
I highly recommend using a strong glue like E6000
Glue all the pieces into place and apply a base coat, for this one it has been coated in white paint and layered with grey using a sponge
You can also have a base of grey and add white and grey paint for a faux galvanized look like this.
Apply a Milk decal or freehand paint it with black paint.
Finish off by adding some rope to enhance the rustic farmhouse look. You can also add raffia or checkered ribbons.
