I’ll admit, I have a buffalo check/plaid obsession. When I saw this pin for a buffalo check bunny sign, I knew I had to have one. The purpose of the Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month’s challenge is about Spring Crafts/DIY Projects, so I chose to make a Rustic DIY Bunny Sign (with Cricut).

As a Plaid Ambassador, I was given the Mod Podge and supplies for this bunny sing. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Let’s Create a Rustic DIY Bunny Sign

Making the rustic wood frame with 1x2

The first step is to decide on the size of your sign. I went with 8×10 for my sign. My husband cut the plywood 8×10 and made the frame out of the 1×2.

Painting the plywood with white craft paint for the background of the wooden sign

I painted the plywood with white craft paint for the backing. Then I stained the frame with Kona Wood Stain. While these both dried I worked on making the bunny for the sign.

In Cricut Design Space™ I uploaded an outline of a bunny with a bent ear because it’s so cute. Then once I sized it to fit the 8×10 frame, I hit make it. I did mirror image so the bunny would be cut on the good side of the fabric with my Cricut maker. Also make sure you use the rotary blade and the fabric mat. If you want to know more about cutting fabric with the Cricut maker I have a full tutorial.

Once everything dried my husband nailed the plywood to the back of the frame. Then I went back and stained the side of the plywood once it was attached to the frame. My husband has is eye on a new tool to make the indentation so the plywood would fit inside the frame.

Using Fabric Mod Podge to Add the Bunny to the Rustic Sign

Iron your fabric before applying it to the wooden sign

Now it’s DIY time to add the pink plaid fabric bunny to the rustic wooden sign. To get the bunny read for the sign, iron your fabric so all the wrinkles are out. Then apply a layer of fabric mod podge to the back of the bunny using the Fabric Mod Podge and decoupage brushes.

Putting fabric mod podge on the bunny for a DIY bunny Sign

Here is the tricky part, carefully get your bunny where you want it on the sign. I should have place my bunny where I wanted it on the wood sign and then applied the mod podge to half the bunny. Then repeat. Oops, but you live and learn when creating something new. I used the Mod Podge Smoothing Tool to get out any bubbles. Remember don’t shake your Mod Podge because shaking causes bubbles.

I waited about 20 minutes and then I applied a top layer to the fabric using the mod podge.

After it dried, I added on the bunny pom pom tail. My parents have a pom pom maker because my mom knits hats and my dad makes the pom poms. So my dad made me a couple sizes of bunny tails out of white yarn. It was a hard choice of which tail size to choose, but I went with the bigger tail. Bunnies do have the cutest fluffiest tails ever.

The best thing about this sign is that it’s perfect for spring and Easter. The pastel pink plaid, the white and the wood are such a pretty combination. I’m happy with how my rustic DIY Bunny Sign, so remember to not just pin, but make something fun too!
