Here comes Peter Cottontail hopping down the bunny trail, Hippity Hoppity Easter’s on it’s way! I don’t know about you, but I loved that song when I was a kid! Feeling a bit nostalgic, I decided to whip up an adorable DIY Easter decor sign that I can display through the holiday – and every time I walk by it, I start to sing that song!

If you prefer a video tutorial, I put one together for this DIY Easter Sign!
To create the washi tape bunting, cut a short length of washi tape – about 2.5-3″. Fold the tape over the twine, adhering it to itself. Using scissors cut the bottom of the tape to get the shape you want. Repeat until you have the length needed for your sign.
To create the bunny’s tail I made a pom-pom using a fork, though you could also use a pre-made pom-pom if you prefer. To create the pom-pom you start by wrapping yarn around the tines of a fork. I wrapped the yarn around about 50 times. Once complete, cut a small length of yarn and insert it into the middle of the fork tines, wrap around the yarn and tie tightly with a double knot. Remove from the fork and using sharp scissors, carefully cut the loops on one side and then the other. You will be left with an elongated pom-pom. Give it a bit of a haircut to get a more rounded shape. Hot glue onto a foam or paper bunny).
Place the bunny and bunting onto the DIY Easter decor sign. Don’t glue in place yet – this will help you decide how big to make your words. I chose to use my Cricut Explore Cutting Machine to cut “Hoppity Easter” out of vinyl. I created the design in Cricut Design Space and then sent it to the machine, which cut the letters out. I weeded the vinyl, and then used Transfer Tape to place it onto the sign. If you don’t have a cutting machine you can hand paint the letters or use a craft knife to cut the vinyl or use letter stickers.
Your new Easter sign would look great displayed along with this framed Happy Easter decoration!
