I always enjoy hosting Easter egg hunts for my family, and for the last few years my neighbor and I have played host for our HOA’s community Easter egg hunt. I thought it would be fun to come up with some new Easter egg hunt ideas this year. I was inspired by decor I had seen at Pottery Barn to make my own signs to decorate my yard with. These Easter egg hunt signs will add some whimsy to my yard, and they’ll also make great photo props for pictures of the kids with all their eggs!

- Cut Files for Signs
Step 1. Remove the wire hangers and the labels from the unfinished wood arrows.
Step 2. Paint the arrows and the dowel rods with pastel colors. I painted one side of each piece, let them dry, then flipped them all over to paint the other sides.
Step 3. Paint the edges of the arrows with white paint.
Step 4. Cut the phrases from black vinyl. You can download the cut file here.
***Note: If you don’t have a vinyl cutting machine, you can use transfer paper to trace the lettering onto the wood and then fill it in with a black paint marker.
Step 5. Weed the vinyl by peeling away the pieces that you won’t be using. Place a piece of transfer tape over the letters and transfer the lettering to the painted wood arrows.
Your new DIY signs are ready! These fun Easter egg hunt ideas are sure to be a big hit this year.
These signs would also look adorable inside if you stick them in potted plants. You could also glue them onto a base and use them to decorate a party table with. Have fun crafting and creating decor for your Easter egg hunt or party!
