Day 26 – Feed Sack

Feed sacks have gone through many different phases. Starting out as cloth based that was turned into clothing and curtains and things for your home, to becoming a more woven material, to now more likely being made of a paper based or plastic like product. Some had vibrant colors and patterns carefully put into them, now covered with logos, instructions and ingredients. I know at our farms feedsacks have been piling up for years, so if you happen to be crafty with current days feedsacks or stumble across some of the original cloth based ones, check out the Farm Related DIY projects below. Only four days left of 30 Days of Agriculture. Stay tuned for tomorrow to see MY FAVORITE DIY item and projects yet!!! Be sure to check out my pinterest board to find instructions or more information on all DIY projects and photos used on these posts.

Day 25 – Perfect Transformation

I can slightly remember from my first years of showing dad bringing a “feedbox”, feed shovel, and feed scoop so that he could hand mix the feed while we were exhibiting cattle at a show. Luckily, we no longer have to pack those added items and we use the dump and eyeball method. However, I do still see feed scoops around today while at the shows. Most of them now though are pretty bright colors and are made of plastic and would not work for today’s DIY ideas. But, if you are lucky enough to come across some old school or metal feed scoops “scoop” them up to make these really cool lighted wall scones. Perfect for any country themed home. These may be an essential in my future home!

We only have 5 days left of 30 Days of Agriculture and 5 more days of Farm – Related DIY so don’t miss out!
