The banner I found at Hobby Lobby came with 12 pennants on it so I cut 5 of them off to make a shorter banner. You will want to lay down something under the pennants before you begin painting. I then took my spouncer and started making polka dots on the pennants. I used two different sizes of spouncers for this.
Once the paint was dry, I then glued the letters on the three center pennants leaving two on each side of HOP.
To hang the banner you simply tie a loop on each end of the jute twine.
How cute is this little wood bunny I found at Walmart? Although it is super cute just the way it is, I had a different vision for it!
The first thing I did was run a sanding block over it to smooth it out.
Next, I used the color “mint chip” from the DIY Paint Co. brand and painted the top of the bunny. I left the sides pink for added dimension.
Once that was dry, I then took my waverly brush and dabbed it in my DIY Dark Wax(also DIY Paint Co. brand) and light brushed it across the top of the bunny. You can make this as light or as dark as you want by adjusting the amount of wax you apply.
Next, I took a piece of pink burlap and used mod podge to adhere it to the ears and then trimmed around it with scissors to fit the ears,
To finish off the ears, I took jute rope and outlined around them and added a cute buffalo check bowl
Now, it’s time to get creative with the face. I used POSCA paint pens and buttons for mine.
So, what do you think? You can always change this up to fit your style but I think she turned out pretty darn cute.
I chose to paint my egg with the color Pink Parfait by Apple Barrel. You could sure skip this step if you wanted, however, I wanted the edges of my egg to be painted.
Next, I began gluing my straws on. I started with blue and worked my way to the top using all three colors.
Once I had all of the straws glued on I took my scissors and cut around the shape of the egg.
To give it a more finished look, I glued rope twine around the edge. I also used this twine to make a hanger for the egg once I was finished.
The last thing I did was add a bow. I simply took two different pattern of ribbons and crossed them and used a piece of jute twin to secure the middle. I added a cute little egg embellishment to the center as well.
If you didn’t want to add the twine hanger you could also use this as a shelf sitter or accent piece for a tiered tray!
To start, I simply used my Apple Barrel paint to paint my letters. You can find the paint I used at Wal-mart. I used “Pink Parfait” for the “H” and “Aquamarine” for the “P”.
Next, I took my piece of scrapbook paper, traced my oval shape onto it, cut it out and then mod podged it onto my oval. I then like to brush a little mod podge on the top and around the edges to seal the paper down.
Next, I used E6000 to adhere my pieces to my barn wood. I used the E6000 versus hot glue so I could use this sign outdoors also. Hot glue will not not uphold outside with the varying temperatures. Keep in mind this will take up to 24 hours to cure.
To finish my sign off, I simply took a few different pieces of ribbon and made a quick bow. I found both of these patterns of ribbon at Hobby Lobby.
I am in love with how this turned out. Now to decide if I want to keep this indoors or use it to spruce up my porch. If you will be using your sign outdoors be sure to spray your sign with a polyurethane or clear coat to seal it.
Who doesn’t love a cute scrap wood bunny? I have made several of these and I think they get cuter every time! If your anything like me, more than likely you will have all of the supplies on hand in your craft stash!
Scrap wood 2×4 or 4×4
White & pink paint(I used Apple Barrel)
Burlap ribbon(I used 2 in. wired burlap)

Sandpaper(optional for distressing)
Hot glue gun
I did this project live on my Facebook page and you can view the video below!
Who doesn’t love some easy diy holiday décor? This wreath is super cute and very easy to make! I am sharing my live video of me making the wreath as I thought it would be easier for you to watch rather than for me to try and explain. The bow is very easy to make but can be a little tricky to try and explain.
