Easter Sign

I wanted to do something fun for Easter this year and I have seen all the fun Farmhouse style signs, and wanted to try one myself.

I didn't get a picture of my husband cutting the wood  - I guess I was in a hurry to start the the project :).  We cut a piece of MDF to the size I wanted the sign, and then cut the the trim pieces for the frame.  Then, I stained the frame with some wood stain that we had in the garage.  I like to use a cloth to apply it.

I then cut the letter out of vinyl using my cricut, and free handed a bunny.  I then put the vinyl on the wood and used it as a stencil.  For the bunny used some graphite paper and traced it onto the wood.

I then painted the letters and the bunny, and pulled up the vinyl.

I actually did this project with a good friend of mine, we both loved how they turned out!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I have been looking for some large white pedestals, and hadn't found what I was looking for, so I decided to make some from some odds and ends I had.


I started out with some misc. wood pieces, candle sticks and finials.

I nailed and glued them together.

Next, I painted them with silver and black and paint.

Then, I painted over them with a warm white color and sanded them here and there to antique them.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
