Today, we are going to share a painted wood Easter decoration with the darling saying “Oh, for Peep’s sake!”.
We made this sign with scraps of 2×4 studs we had left over and some supplies we already had on hand from previous crafts.
Click play on our YouTube video below to watch us create these cute blocks.
- (2) 2″x 4″ scrap wood, cut to 3 1/2″ and sanded to creating two square blocks
- Brown acrylic paint
- Black acrylic paint
- White acrylic paint
- 1″ paint brush
- Fine detail paint brush
- 4″ square of adhesive contact paper (to create a sticker)
- 3″ printed outline of a bunny (cut out for a stencil to trace)
- Ultra-fine point black Sharpie marker
- A small dish of water
- Paper towels
- Optional: blow dryer to quickly dry paint so sticker will stick to the wood
- Stain your pre-cut and sanded 3 1/2 inch blocks with acrylic paint. Thin the paint by dipping your brush in water after each dip into the paint, to create a stain effect. We darkened our brown paint by blending a very small dab of black acrylic paint with the brown. Be careful, a little black paint goes a very long way.
- Air dry for 1-2 hours or you can use a blow dryer to completely dry your blocks quickly.
- Cut out the printed 3″ bunny outline, right along the line to create a stencil to trace.
- Using the bunny stencil, trace the bunny shape onto the 4″ square of adhesive contact paper.
- Cut out the bunny shape on the contact paper.
- Remove the protective backing and adhere the bunny sticker to the center of one of the painted blocks.
- Paint the entire block white, using the white acrylic paint (not thinned with water), painting carefully over the bunny sticker also.
- Use a clean paper towel to gently rub some of the white paint off the block to create a worn, distressed effect.
- When the white block is dry, remove the contact paper bunny sticker to reveal the stained bunny silhouette.
- Hand paint the words “Oh, for Peep’s sake!” on the second stained brown block using the small fine point paint brush.
- Allow the second block to dry and then your project is complete!
