Flowers are blooming and pollen is flying in the air. That must mean that Spring is almost here. Most kids will be out for spring break soon and right after that it will be EASTER! The months and holidays seem to fly by, don’t they. I am trying to be on top of things this year and get my Easter decorations made early. Hopefully it will keep me on track and I wont forget to buy plastic eggs for the Easter Egg hunt this year. Grab your Cricut (or other electronic cutting machine) and some vinyl and make this DIY for Easter with me.
- Electronic Cutting Machine (I used my Cricut Explore Air 2)
- Peel and Stick Vinyl in Brown, Lime Green, Olive Green, Yellow, and Pink
- Darice MDF Wood Oval Sign
- Transfer Tape
- Darice Paint Brush
- Acrylic Paint in Cream
- Darice Ribbon
- Darice Hot Glue Gun
Start by painting your wooden sign with cream acrylic paint, allow this to dry over night. Use your electronic cutting machine to cut your Easter image. I used my Cricut Air 2 and an image from the Cricut Design Space for my image. You can find the image sized with the wording, ready to cut here.
There are a few layers of vinyl for this image. I like adding all the layers of vinyl to the main layer, which in this case is the brown vinyl, then adding the image with all the layers put together to my sign. This way everything stays straight as you are adding layers.
One you have the vinyl shapes cut for this DIY for Easter sign, you will then add the wording. First cut a piece of transfer tape close to the same size as your wording. Then peel the tape off the backing, put the transfer tape over all the wording. Make sure to use the lines on the transfer tape to keep the lettering straight as you are adding it to your sign.
Always peel your transfer tape off at a 45 degree angle. This will help keep your vinyl on the sign you are making.
Lastly add your ribbon to the back of your sign with hot glue so you can hang it. This would be great on the wall or a door, or displayed with the grapevine and chicken wire DIY bunny decoration from my earlier post.
