{{Cardboard Easter Signs}}

THIS IS A RECYCLED craft. I had some cardboard that were inside  the package from my curtain panels, and I thought hmmmmm, what can I do with these? I am going to do some small Easter Decorating this year but I want it to go more with my home decor. I don’t want to bring in any pastels this year mainly because I don’t want to drag in all my Easter stuff and dig it all out, since the baby will be coming late April. SOOO I made these.

HOW TO: I painted the cardboard with acrylic paint, and let it dry. Then I distressed the edges with walnut distress ink, then Mod podged cut burlap to the carboard. I then cut the bunny, the basket, and the eggs from my Doodle charms Cricut Cartridge and mod podge them on top of the burlap. I also distressed the eggs a little as well. Last I whole punched the cardboard and added jute and grosgrain ribbon for hanging. SUPER EASY!

THANKS A WHOLE BUNCH FOR STOPPING BY. P.S. I have enjoyed reading all your tips, ideas, products you love, and links on the eyebrows, you all rock. xo jen
