DIY: Pottery Barn Inspired Easter Sign

 PB Inspired Easter Hippity Hop Sign {Dolen Diaries for See Vanessa Craft}

Hello, See Vanessa Craft readers! I’m Shelly Dolen from Dolen Diaries where I share my love of all things creative!! Are you a Pottery Barn fan? Me, too. However, I’m not always a fan of the price tag especially when I can make my own version at home for free. I actually had everything I needed for this PB Inspired Easter Hippity Hop sign at home but even if you have to go out and buy supplies I can promise your DIY will not cost you $99 plus tax & shipping.

Supplies:

  • 14 x 31″ plywood {I used MDF but my sign is not for outdoor use. If you leave MDF outside you’ll have a mess on your hands}
  • 2 pieces of 1 x 2″ cut to 15″ long
  • 2 pieces of 1 x 2″ cut to 29.5″ long
  • Metallic Paint {I used Martha’s Rose Gold craft paint}
  • Black Craft Paint
  • White Acrylic Paint
  • High Grit Sandpaper
  • Staple Gun & Staples
  • Paint Brush
  • Happy Easter Hippity Hoppity Stencil

First, I painted the sign white and while I waited for that to dry, I used my Circut Explore to create my stencils. If you don’t have a cutting machine you could print, cut, and trace the lettering. The fonts I used: Happy = Bodoni MT Easter, Hippity, & Hoppity = Nursery Rhymes

Using a pencil I trace the stencil to paint. I love the painting part, it’s SO relaxing!! It’s like a coloring book or paint by numbers for adults.

I first painted the whole design with the rose gold craft paint. 

Once the rose gold paint was dry, I painted a second coat of black over the whole design.After that dried, I took a high grit sandpaper to gently rub back some of the black paint to give the sign an aged look.

It was finally time to attach the frame! My 1 x 2 pieces were all reclaimed so they were already stained brown but I think raw wood or naturally weather wood would also look just as good as stained.

I laid my frame pieces out face side down and then placed my sign centered on top of the frame. *Don’t feel bad if this takes a couple of tries because it took me a few. 

I used an air stapler to secure the sign to the frame.
