Bunny Crossing Sign
If you have some old fence pickets lying around your garage, this is the perfect project for you. You’ll ideally want three pieces: one for “bunny”, one for “crossing”, and one for the bunny painting. First of all, paint the pickets the color you want - the recommendation is using colors that represent spring, such as blue or green. Then, make the letters and bunny using a pencil and use acrylic paint over it. Seal it all with a spray sealer and lastly, screw the pieces onto a post and place it in your favorite spot in the garden!
Why don’t you have a Smores Party with an Easter theme and place your sign in the middle? It will certainly be entertaining.
