I was on Facebook one day, and I came across a reel by Crafty Hawk Mom making over some rolling pins and I knew I wanted to make some for myself. Be sure to check her page out, she makes some cute stuff, you can find her here. I had a ton of old rolling pins I had picked up thrifting, so I had the supplies already! These were pretty easy to make and honestly you can make them to match your decor style! So come follow along as I make these DIY Farmhouse Rolling Pins!!
Thrifted Rolling Pins (I used 4)
Paints Any Colors You Choose
Farm Animal Stencil – Hobby Lobby
Letter Stamps – Hobby Lobby
Black Ink Pad
First, I painted them in all the colors I wanted. I tried to make them all cohesive, I wanted them to all be together and look like they belonged that way.
Second, I took the farmhouse stencil I had from Hobby Lobby and stenciled a different farm animal around the rolling pin on 3 of the rolling pins. Again, I rotated colors. When stenciling I used tape to hold my stencil in place and put as many animals as possible that each pin would allow, given its size.
Third, I took my final rolling pin and my letter stamps and randomly stamped animal sounds on it. The sounds related to the farm animals I had used on my other rolling pins. You could certainly choose other words or even more farm animals.
Fourth, I took some sandpaper and roughed the pins up and gave them a distressed and rustic look. When I was done sanding, I wiped them clean.
Finally, I added some clear wax to each pin and then tied a small raffia bow to the end of each pin. The wax I got at Hobby Lobby; they do have it at most craft stores. It is easy to use, just added it with a rag and wiped off excess.
This is how they turned out!! I ABSOLUTELY love them!! How stinking adorable are these and how fun will they be to display!? I just am amazed these ae just a simple thrift store find!
Here is how I have them displayed. I had this basket and thought they would look cute in it; I was right! However, if I can find and old metal basket that is kind of rusty, I will switch to that! Do you think you will try to make some DIY Farmhouse Rolling Pins? What rolling pin is your favorite?
