It has been a crazy couple of months here at our house and I imagine it will only get busier as we get closer to the wedding date! I am so excited to share all of the fun projects that are coming together for the wedding but I will be saving them for after the celebration. I don’t want to spoil any of the surprise for guests that follow me here on the blog. I have not been as active on here between my day job (short staffed) and wedding plans so taking a step away to do a quick Easter project was a welcome change. I found this wooden egg sign at Michaels for 50% off and started playing with an egg design and bunny ears popping out from behind. Jury is still out on if I will keep the bunny ears because I love the egg design too much, hello glittery top coat!

Begin by painting the wooden egg sign in your desired pattern. Since I used white paint to separate the colors, I decided on wavy lines so mistakes would be less noticeable that straight. If you have a paint pen, that is also recommended for where the pastel paint colors meet. I finished my egg off with a clear glitter paint and I think it brought the design together beautifully!
Cut two bunny ears out of the brown felt. I always start with cutting a template out of printer paper. That way I can refine it to the correct shape and size before cutting my fabric.
Paint the inside of felt ears with the pastel pink.
To add structure to the ears, hot glue wire onto the back. This also helps when attaching to the back of the sign. Hot glue the ears to the back of the sign using hot glue gun.
