Farm Fresh Eggs

There’s nothing like Farm Fresh Eggs! This is the perfect addition to your farmhouse décor and you can display it all year or seasonally in spring and summer. The main design is a sign with a classic red and white barn flanked by a hen and rooster. Across the bottom are the words, “farm fresh eggs” with fun details and shading in the lettering, while the top of the sign features colorful flowers and vines. Accompanying the sign are four ornaments containing adorable chicks in different poses. Each ornament is finished in the shape of an egg. Pattern is a four-page booklet with the egg template, finishing instructions and supply list for the ornaments. A finishing tutorial will be published on my Youtube channel the weekend of Market.
