DIY Reversible Rustic Easter Bunny Butt Wood Sign

This DIY Reversible Rustic Easter Bunny Butt Wood Sign is a fun, easy painting project that is perfect for Easter holiday decorating and gifting.

Can you believe March is almost gone? Where does time going? I’m afraid to blink too long because my girl might be going to college and she’s only 6 now. Easter is around the corner and I thought I wouldn’t make it finish this decoration. I’m so excited.

I made this fun Reversible Rustic Spring Easter Bunny Butt Wood Sign to put on my tray decor. Why reversible? Because I’m so behind that I needed a flexible decor to keep up LOL.

I’m seriously so happy Spring is starting and the weather is starting to get better so I truly wanted a pretty Spring decor too.

Let’s face Easter is one day so I wanted to make a decoration piece that I could easily turn back into Spring. I’ll be sharing the farmhouse Spring tray centerpiece soon that includes this easy DIY easter decor. I’m in love with how it turned out!!!

This craft is fairly easy to make. On one side you can make it without any cutting machine but on the other, you definitely need one or you can find a pretty self-adhesive stencil. But, of course, imagination is the limit. If you are good at hand drawing or hand lettering then you are a winner!!!

This reversible wood sign can be used as part of a centerpiece as I did, if you make it larger you can put it on your mantel, entryway table decor, as part of your front porch decor, and if we don’t make it reversible you could even use it as a rustic bunny wall art for a kid’s bedroom.

What kind of wood do you use to make a sign?

The best wood for your wood sign projects depends on your purpose for the wood sign. Generally, the best wood for wood signs is pine and plywood.

However, depending on the purpose, I just use whatever I have around. For example, for this project, I used a scrap wood piece I had left from another project.

What machine do you need to make wooden signs?

If you are looking to buy a cutting machine, then it will come down to the purpose. For small scales, I recommend looking into Silhouette and Cricut. I personally own a Silhouette and love it. But I’ve heard really good things about cricut too.

For large-scale projects then you should look into more professional cutting machines but I don’t have experience with that.

Prep Work

Clean your piece of wood off prior to staining. This will get rid of any loose dirt, splinters and provide a smoother surface to work with. All you need to do is clean it off with a brush or cloth.

Stain your piece of wood and let it dry well.

Making the Easter Bunny Butt Wood Sign:

I prepared a file with all the pieces for the bunny easter sign in case it’s easier for you. You can snag files with the links Above. But, I used a cup large enough for the body of the bunny and then cut the shape of the bunny feet. You can use a cutting machine if you have one to stencil and for the feet.

So, draw the circle directly on the stained wood.

Paint the whole circle with white chalk paint. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Actually, bunny bodies are furry so your painted edge doesn’t need to be perfectly straight (wink!). Let it dry, apply another coat and let it dry well.

Starting painting the circle for the Easter Bunny Butt Wood Sign

I used white paint because I love the contest between the walnut stain and the white but you can use your favorite color.

In the meanwhile, let’s create the cute little feet. Cut your feet pattern and let’s transfer them to the felt.

Cut out paw pieces and white felt ready to be traced.

For the main foot shape, use white felt. With a pencil, trace the shapes of both feet and cut them.

As you can see for this side of the wood sign we can easily do it without an electronic cutting machine. Woot!

Then trace the pads on pink felt.

There you go. Cute aren’t they?

Once your wood piece is dry, Sand it. It’s important that you don’t make my mistake LOL. I only remembered to sand it when the sign was completely done. Duh!!!

After sanding, clean your wood piece well and then glue your cute bunny feet.

Lastly, glue your pom-pom bunny tail (Actually leave this for the last if you are actually planning on making it reversible and haven’t done the other side)

There you go!!!! Your Easter Bunny Butt Wood Sign is almost done!

Let’s move on.

Making the Hello Spring Wood Sign:

Using your cutting machine cut out the template for this project (you can get it on links above) with the vinyl on your mat.

Remove the vinyl from your mat, peel off all the inner design that you will be painting.

Once you have removed all your vinyl pieces apply your transfer paper.

Remove the backing from your vinyl very carefully making sure everything is staying on the transfer tape.

Now time to apply to your prepped signboard. If your vinyl is heavy-duty I recommend sticking it quickly on a fabric first to reduce a little bit the adhesive, otherwise, it will happen to you like did to me, I got some adhesive left on the wood later.

Line up your vinyl with your board so it will be applied evenly, and using your scrapper firmly push it down.

Next, slowly remove your transfer tape so that only your vinyl is on your board.

Paint your design. Allow it to dry and then apply your second coat. Repeat this step until your desired color has been achieved.

Once your paint has completely dried remove your vinyl.

Let it dry a little bit more and sand it. Here again, you will see that I sanded it after gluing the bunting. You know what to do, right?

Now, cut a couple strips of baker’s twine and create some buntings with your washi tape.

Cut them into your favorite shape. I cut them like a triangle.

There you go! It’s all ready.
