DIY "Egg Hunt" Sign, 3rd Blogger Competition #2 - The Ribbon Retreat Blog
Hello everyone!  I’m Christine from I Dig Pinterest and I’m thrilled to be a part of this fun blogger competition hosted by The Ribbon Retreat!  It was an exciting day when the products arrived in my mail box and I started dreaming up cute things to make with them!  In the end, I settled on this Egg Hunt Sign.  It’s perfectly functional if you enjoy hosting egg hunts like me, but also acts as a pretty porch or yard decoration throughout the spring season!  I’m all about multi-purpose.  🙂

One of the things I most look forward to when the weather finally warms up and the flowers bloom is celebrating Easter.  I typically put together a little egg hunt for my kids and their friends at a nearby park, so I figured this sign will come in handy.  And it also adds some curb appeal to my home!

Here are the supplies I was provided with.  I also used some scrap wood, two wood screws, hot glue, a white pom pom, acrylic paint, and white vinyl for the lettering.

I started by sanding and then giving my piece of wood a few coats of paint.  My board measured 16″x16″.  I used Apple Barrel Sublime Lime Gloss Acrylic Paint.

While the paint was drying, I went to the computer, found a rabbit silhouette clipart I liked online and enlarged it to be the size of a sheet of paper in a word document.  I printed that and pinned it to my white felt.  Note to self: replace the ink cartridge.

I carefully cut out my rabbit shape.

Next I printed out two egg-shaped clipart designs that I found online.  I made sure they fit nicely on either side of the rabbit on my board.  I glued them to the cardboard and then cut them out.  The cardboard will provide nice reinforcement for a sturdy final product once the ribbon is attached.

Next I selected the ribbon I wanted to use (I chose those that were the smallest in width so I could include more patterns and variety on my eggs).

Using hot glue, I adhered the ribbon to the egg in strips.  I roughly trimmed the excess ribbon as I went.

I turned the egg over so the cardboard was showing and then trimmed around the edges.

Ta da!  I repeated the process for the other egg, alternating the ribbon patterns to mix things up.

Next, I screwed the board to my post, placing the screws so they would be hidden by my felt rabbit. I made sure the post was centered and ran the full length of the back of the board for optimal support.  I roughed up the edges of the board with some medium-grit sand paper just for kicks.

I used my Silhouette craft machine to cut the “Egg Hunt” and the arrow below the bunny.  If you don’t own a craft cutting machine, you can always stencil on the letters and arrow or free-hand them with a paint brush.
I used the “American Typewriter” font.  “Egg” measured 4 1/2″ long by 2″ tall.  “Hunt” measured 6″ long by 2″ tall. The arrow measured 7″ long by 1 3/4″ tall.
I applied the vinyl to my board with transfer paper.

Lastly, I hot glued on my pretty pink silk flower and the pom fringe trim at a diagonal in the top right corner.  I used spray adhesive to adhere the felt bunny and the ribbon eggs to the board.  Lastly, I hot glued on a mini white pom pom for the rabbit’s cotton tail.

I just love how it turned out!  Now I have to host an egg hunt, because I can’t wait to show this off!  🙂
Happy Spring!
