DIY Happy Easter Sign Wall Decor
Today I am sharing my Happy Easter Sign that I made using inexpensive items that I picked up at Dollar Tree as well as Walmart. I chose to use some fun pops of color for this pretty Spring Decor.
I started with a whitewash plank sign that I picked up at Walmart in the craft section. (was under $3)
To add in some fun pops of color I chose to use Cameo Pink and Aquamarine acrylic paints.
I used small round sponge brushes and went around the edge of the sign in each color using
a different size brush.
The next thing I did was use a wood bunny rabbit cutout that I had purchased at Dollar Tree in a package of 5 or 6 and using some scrapbook paper in black and white buffalo check print I
traced the outline of the rabbit on the paper and cut it out.
Then I simply adhered it to the wood using mod podge.
To dress up the rabbit a bit more I used black acrylic paint and a foam brush and just went along the edge of the rabbit silhouette to give it more of a defined outline.
I chose to go around the edge of my sign as well.
I had a package of metal words that I also picked up at Dollar Tree and chose to use Happy, and Easter out of the assortment. However, I wanted them to stand out more on my sign so I chose to go ahead and add some paint to them.
After they had dried I attached the words and the rabbit to my sign using my hot glue gun.
Of course I thought it needed a fun bow.. so I made a simple double bow using decorative Easter themed ribbon that I had also purchased at Dollar Tree.
I also went ahead and added a tiny jute bow to the rabbit to dress it up just a little more as well.
I could've stopped there, but I felt like the words needed to stand out more so I used some
black paint and one of the round sponge brushes and lightly tapped on some paint here and there which gave them a bit of a splatter look.
I really liked how it was turning out but after hanging it up I thought the letters still needed
to be more visible, so I used a black permanent marker to simply outline the letters.
I think it turned out so cute and such a fun pop of color for Spring!
