Dollar Store DIY Farmhouse Easter Sign

I received the wooden Easter egg, the twine and the burlap necessary for this project at Dollar tree and I already had vinyl and spray paint on hand, so it only cost me $ 2. You can also paint it by hand with chalk paint to give it an even more country-chic look.

To make the words “Happy Easter”, you have several different options. You can use a cutting machine, stencils or trace the letters by hand. I used my Cricut Explore Air 2, black vinyl, and transfer tape. The font I used was free Skinny Police from Dafont.com. I have included detailed instructions below for how to make the words using the Cricut method. If you use the same $ 1 wooden Easter egg from Dollar Tree, make the lettering about 4.5-5 inches wide.

Even though the instructions for this DIY Easter sign inspired by the Rae Dunn-inspired dollar store seem long, it’s actually a very quick and easy project to do. I just wanted to give you a complete step-by-step process on how to use the Cricut design space and transfer tape to complete this project, but if you’ve used the design space before and are familiar with the transfer tape, you have to go through the instructions. You can also watch this informative video on how to transfer the vinyl to your Easter egg using transfer tape. Sometimes it’s more useful to see the process instead of reading it!
