DIY Easter Egg Hunt With Yard Signs

12 Materials
2 Hours

Who doesn't enjoy watching kids hunting for Easter eggs?  I wanted to invite anyone stopping by this month to an impromptu Egg hunt and this is how I did it...

Choose wording

First I thought about words I'd want on the signage. I wanted my sign to be easy to understand and be bright and cheery. I limited my hunt to one egg per person to keep since I know many will stop by each day this month but you may want to allow more.

Make stencils and choose paint

I made my stencils with my Cricut machine then chose some acrylic paints in Spring colors.

Fence pickets

I used picket fence pieces because they're already treated to be out in the weather. Mine were cut down to the length and I wanted then sanded.

Paint pickets

Then I painted the fence pieces- each one a different color.

Paint wording with stencils

Then I painted the wording in using my stencils. If you have a steady hand you can use a paint pen instead!

Gently apply the paint and let dry then remove stencils.

Attach sign boards

Attach each picket to a tree or as I did to a white stake. A drill and a few screws make this a quick project.

If you want to you can spray the wording with clear spray paint so it holds up more then one season. 😉

Hide eggs & hang baskets

After hiding Easter eggs filled with candy and trinkets I hung a few baskets on the bottom picket.

Easter is coming... are you ready?!
