I’m excited to blog about this darling Easter project I created using the ADORNit letter press tray. First off, I have to admit that I’m a beginner crafter, but this was such a fun home dec project! At this point you can take a sigh of relief and be assured this is an EASY project to accomplish. If I can do it, you can do it! It took me about a 1 ½ hours and now that all the hard stuff is done this should be easy for you to make! This blog post will help you accomplish this fun project fast and easy so you can decorate for Easter.
First step is to trace the chipboard provided to the outside shape of the wooden tray. At this step I also traced the shapes of the squares inside of the tray. This helped me know where I needed to lay the paper and give me an idea of my design space.
Inside the wood kit you will find darling Easter Wood Shapes. These wood shapes are easy to press and pop out. I used the largest scallop frame and painted it orange with craft paint. I’m really into vintage so I distressed it lightly with a brown stamp around the edges. I picked a spot on the word paper to go inside the frame.
I had a can of yellow spray paint on-hand which made painting the flourish chipboard and spring wood shape super easy!
I used all the wood shaped eggs and covered them with paper. The smaller eggs are placed next to the bunny and add a fun dimension. I also used the bunny wood shape to pop it out of the frame.
This picture is a finished view of when I was done laying the paper on the chipboard and how I adhered it with zipdry glue. It doesn’t look that pretty, but once the wood frame goes over top of it, you can’t even see the uneven edges! To create the pinwheel I cut the paper in two 3.5 inch squares and folded them like a paper fan and glued them together with the zipdry.
On the inside of the two large frames I lined it with the ribbon. I put a line of glue down first then added my ribbon.
For the flowers I simply cut it out a square from the Watering Can patterned paper. To dress them up I added cute ADORNit dimensional flower stickers.
Feel free to be creative with this project and have fun with it! When you’re all finished snap a picture of your project and share it on our ADORNit Facebook! This was my first DIY project so be sure to leave me a comment and tell me what you think.
