This simple christian Easter wood sign is easy and fun to create.  I am not an artist by any stretch of the imagination.  However, I love to paint, as imperfect as it may be.  If I can do this, you can too.

What you need:

  • White acrylic paint
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Pencil (optional)
  • Paintbrushes (small tip and large)
  • Wood canvas (I bought mine at Walmart for less than $5.  You can get a package of them on Amazon here)

Directions for Easter wood sign:

  • Paint sides of wood with black paint
  • Lightly brush top of wood with black paint in various places, mostly on the edges
  • When the black paint is dry, paint over the whole canvas with white paint
  • Black paint should show through the white.  If not, take a dry brush and brush over the while paint to expose some of the black underneath to achieve a worn look.
  • If you choose, you can write the letters on the wood as you would like them to appear.
  • Paint the letters and cross on the wood.  (I personally free-handed this on because I like the rustic/homemade look)  You can use stencils or vinyl stickers if you prefer.
