Today’s Easter project is not only fast, but super inexpensive, I’m talking less than $5 for this sign. I love wood signs because you buy the 6′ wood one time and you can reuse your unused wood for the next project. And your initial cost is only $8 for a 6′ board to start so you’re not too deep in the hole! I saw this sign on Pinterest (I typically do not say PINTEREST INSPIRED buuuuut, this goes to a dead link booo!-and there’s no water marking so I’m sorry the original artist isn’t correctly given credit!) and thought it was so cute! My friend Marni and I partner up for craft nights (if you need an invite to our private FB group and you’re local, email me!) and we loved this sign so I re-created it on the cheap. Here’s how you too can make your own foam egg Easter sign.
Start off with foam board, an X-Acto knife or utility knife, scrapbook paper (ours is from Hobby Lobby), pencil, decopage, foam brush, stencil (we have a vinyl cutter but you can email Marni email@example.com to order your own if you don’t have access to one) and a small amounts of blue, white and brown acrylic paint (we used Americana brand).
1. Freehand and cut out an egg shape with your utility knife.
2. Backward trace your egg onto your scrapbook paper.
3. Cut it out.
4. Decopage your paper onto your foam egg.
5. Paint your wood blue.
6. Peel the inside of your letters out.
7. Transfer tape your letters and place it on your dry board.
8. Paint white inside your letters.
9. Lightly distress with brown acrylic paint, distress the rest of your board (optional).
That’s it. Easy and affordable.
I think it’d be really cute to make multiples of these minus the wording, but have several different coordinating egg patterns lined up on your mantle.
