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 fun Etsy sign thought it was so cute! My friend Marni and I partner up for craft nights and we loved this sign we crafted so I re-created it on the cheap. (Psst! If you need an invite to our private FB group and you’re local, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Here’s how you too can make a foam egg Easter sign, too!
Start off with the following….
- Piece of 12″ wide x 16″ long board
- Sheet of foam board (our egg is about 9″wide x 12″ long)
- X-Acto knife or utility knife
- Srapbook paper (ours is from Hobby Lobby)
- Foam brush
- Vinyl 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)
- Small amounts of DecoArt’s Sea Glass blue, Cotton white and Cinnamon brown acrylic paint.
- Paint your wood blue.
- Freehand & cut out an egg shape with your utility knife.
- Backward trace your egg onto scrapbook paper, cut it out.
- Decoupage your paper onto your foam egg.
- Hot glue the foam egg onto the board.
- Peel the inside of your letters out.
- Transfer tape your letters (Georgia font) and place it on your dry board.
- Paint white inside your stenciled letters.
- Lightly distress with brown acrylic paint.
- Distress the rest of your board, (optional.)
That’s it, you guys! 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.
