DIY Bunny Spring Sign

DIY Bunny Silhouette Spring Sign

Spring is here, finally! I actually went outside today with a short-sleeved shirt on: It was amazing! I hope that this weather keeps up, but I heard a little rumor that it will be getting colder again before it gets warm for a while. I hope that isn’t a case, I’m a summer girl through and through. Enough with these boots and gloves, give me some flip flops and bathing suits!

It’s Cat, from The Rustic Willow again, by the way. Today I’m sharing an adorable spring project with you! I decided it was time to take my Valentine’s Day decorations down and start decorating for spring. That’s when this little sign was born.

This is what you’ll need for this project:

1 piece of 5″x14″ wood
Light blue paint
White paint
Paint brush
Painter’s tape
Hot glue gun
3 buttons

Start out by painting your piece of wood light blue. While that’s drying, print out your bunny picture. I made a template for you, which you can download here.

Position the template onto your wood and tape it into place.

Fill in each bunny with white paint. This makes it much easier to paint your bunnies–it’s like trying to color in the lines all over again! This is my favorite method to painting signs if I don’t have my Silhouette Portrait on hand.

I just love the cheerfulness this sign adds to my living room–and my mom loved it so much that she requested one too. It’s a simple project that took me less than 45 minutes to do, but it’s one of my favorite signs to date.
