I wanted to make some quick rustic Easter decorations so you know me, I went to my pallet pile! I have a bucket at my shop that always has pallet boards cut and ready to grab anytime I need to make a pallet sign. I was planning on doing one sign and was having so much fun I ended up making these signs in 3 different ways. Look how well they go together with my scrap wood lanterns!

Supplies for Easter Decorations:
- Pallet boards cut to size – this is a personal preference
- Acrylic paint in assorted colors
- Air Nailer or nails and hammer
- Fabric Scraps
- Options: E6000, Poly-fil, other embellishments
Instructions for Easter Decorations:
Basic Sign Instructions:
Step 1) Cut your pallet boards to the length you want your sign to be.
Step 2) Lay boards together with the size you want to show face down and measure from the top of the sign to the bottom.
Step 3) Cut 2 boards to the measurement and lay them on the sign.
Step 4) Attach boards making sure to attach each sign board to the back board.
Easter Decorations sign 1:
Step 1) Paint each board a different color. Let dry.
Step 2) Using your pattern or free hand your bunny with white chalk.
Step 3) Fill Bunny in with white acrylic paint. Let dry.
Step 4) Glue on bunny tail embellishment with e6000. – I had this burlap embellishment in my stash. I simply removed the clip and glued it on.
Don’t you just love this little guy! (or girl…you choose lol)
I decided to make mine different sizes. Here is what the back look like of the small ones.
Easter Decorations Sign 2:
Step 1) Using your pattern or free hand your bunny with white chalk.
Step 2) Fill in the bunny with white acrylic paint,
Step 3) Glue on a bunny tail with e6000. – I used a ball of poly-fil for mine. *Diva tip: I save my old poly-fil pillows to use for craft projects. If I don’t have one to recycle you can usually buy a cheap pillow for less then a bag of poly-fil.
Step 4) Make a bunny bow by tearing a strip of scrap fabric. Attach to bunny.
I like having the different sizes don’t you?
Easter Decorations Sign 3:
Step 1) Spray your bunny pattern with repositionable glue and stick down to the wood.
Step 2) Using the pattern as a stencil, paint around the bunny pattern starting from the middle of the pattern and painting outward.
Step 3) Remove bunny pattern and paint more of the sign if you desire.
Step 4) Attach poly-fil tail with e6000.
