Step 1. Use the files found below to cut your stencil from vinyl scraps. I didn’t have a piece large enough to cut the entire image so I separated and cut from two different scraps. You could even break the image up into three pieces if you need to. Once cut, remove the letters and bunny shape (use for another project!) so that you’re left with a stencil.
Step 2. Use transfer tape to move the stencil onto the wood sign. My sign was really smooth so the vinyl stuck just fine. You may need to pre-treat your wood sign with a layer of sealant first if you’re having a hard time getting the stencil to stick.
Step 3. Use chalk paint and a dauber to apply a light coat of paint over the stencil, taking care to stay within the vinyl stencil. Remember, less is more so go easy on the paint. You’ll thank me when it comes time to use the sandpaper!
Step 4. Allow paint to dry slightly before removing the vinyl stencil. You can see in the picture below that the stencil stuck so well that it removed some wood slivers. I like the look it gave to my vintage sign but if you don’t, make sure to use a less adhesive tack vinyl.
Step 5. You can either leave the image as it is (clean and minimal) or use a piece of sandpaper to distress the sign a bit. Totally up to you!
Step 6. Next you’ll need to decide how you plan on using your sign. If you’re planning on leaning it up against something on a mantle or table, you can just leave it as is. If you plan on hanging it, you may need to attach either a ribbon (as I did) or a couple saw tooth hangers.
And there you have it, your very own “Every Bunny Welcome” Easter Vintage Sign! I love the versatility of this stencil makes it perfect for almost any type of home decor. I’d love to see someone apply this pattern to a planter or even a door mat. Hope you enjoy it!
