A Happy Easter Sign You Can Make in Minutes

With Easter not far away, I thought “why not make a cutie Easter sign for my first project!” My Happy Easter sign resulted.

I LOVE the plain pine look. I also love the contrast of the “untreated” wood used in combination with with bold colours and patterns.

That was the main inspiration behind this piece. This one is a fail-proof decoupage Easter project for any level and age of crafter.

If you’re not a fan of the raw wood look, then before you start just give the block a coat of paint. Choose a colour that is complimented by the colours in the paper you are using.

Step 2

Cut out your letters. I wanted my letters to have a child like feel to them so I didn’t draw them up or follow a font, I just cut them as I went.

Step 3

Place the letters on the wood as you go to check you are happy with their sizing.

Step 4

Have a play with your letters and arrange them where you want them to go.

Step 5

Mod Podge time! Apply some Mod Podge to the wood, stick your letter on top and cover generously with Mod Podge. Repeat this with each of your letters.

On a side note . . .  these sponge applicators are AWESOME! This was the first time I’d used them. They are SO nice to work with! I think I need to stock up! 🙂

Step 6

Use a larger sponge brush to give your Happy Easter sign a nice generous final coat of Mod Podge.
