Point egg seekers in the right direction with these Easter Egg hunt signs.
This project was inspired by Easter decor I had seen at Pottery Barn last year. I usually host my extended family at my house for Easter, and part of the festivities always include an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. These colorful Easter egg hunt signs will make great photo props for pictures of the kids with their baskets full of eggs.
Supplies Used to Make the Egg Hunt Signs:
- Darice DIY Crafts Wood Plaque Arrow 13.75 x 3.75 inches
- Darice Unfinished Natural Wood Craft Dowel Rod, 1/2-Inch
- Gorilla Wood Glue
- Cut file
Step one: Untwist and remove the wire hangers and the labels from the unfinished wood arrows. You’ll only use 3 of the arrows for this project, unless you want to design more!
Step two: Paint the arrows and the dowel rods with pastel colors. I painted one side of each object, let it dry, then flipped it over to paint the other sides.
Step three: To provide a nice contrast, paint the edges of the arrows with white paint.
Step four: Cut the Easter egg hunt sign phrases from black vinyl. If you don’t have a vinyl cutting machine, use transfer paper to trace the lettering onto the wood and then fill in the design with a black paint marker.
Step five: Weed the vinyl. Place a piece of transfer tape over the letters and transfer the lettering to the painted wood arrows.
Step six: Use wood glue to attach a dowel rod to the back of each arrow. I have a little trick for speeding up the process! I like to use a bit of hot glue to help hold the wood in place while the wood glue dries. Let the glue dry completely.
Stick these colorful signs in potted plants to add some holiday cheer to your porch. Place the signs in floral foam inside pots to use a party decor indoors, too. Have fun crafting and creating decor for your Easter egg hunt!
