Hello friends! As you know, this year Easter is early. Man it comes up fast when it falls in March. Can we start a committee or something to make Easter the 3rd Sunday in April every year?! Haha!
This month our Wood Connection craft is this adorable sign- Hippity Hoppity Easter’s on its way. We always have so much fun in our classes! Just in case you haven’t heard-we teach classes every month for the Wood Connection. If you aren’t local or can’t make it on the nights of our classes, we offer the kit you can purchase and find the instructions here on our site.
Let’s get to this craft tutorial!
What you need for this project:
- 8 x 10 wood block
- Carrot trio
- Small can of stain
- Wood glue
- Orange paint
- Green paint
- Foam brushes
- 8 x 10 size Easter printable
Great news! We have this Easter printable available to download and print in our shop! Of course you can always print it out and stick it in a cute frame too.

Start by painting a coat of stain on the carrots. Staining them before painting is what will give them that dirty, fresh-out-of-the-ground look. Also stain the sides, back and just a little on the front of the wood block.
Stack the carrots and tie them together with some jute! So stinkin’ cute!
Place the print on the block and press it down, smoothing it out from the center to the outsides using a vinyl squeegee or credit card.
Last, set the carrots on top of the block and just like that–you’ve got some cute Easter decor!
Pretty easy right? New crafters come to every class we do and everyone leaves with a perfect completed project! We hope everyone leaves our site feeling like they can be crafty too! We are certain anyone can be crafty with just a little nudge in the right direction. 😉
