This project was completed in partnership with Oriental Trading. The project idea, instructions, and ideas are my own.

As part of the Oriental Trading Hip Hop Squad, I was challenged to make an Easter decor project using supplies found on their website.  I found so many fun blank items that would be perfect for DIY projects. But, when I stumbled on these Unfinished Wood Bunny Signs, I knew they would be the perfect base for an Easter screen printing project.

One of the hardest things about getting started screen printing is the fear that you will mess up and ruin an expensive blank. This Easter bunny project is a great way to learn how to screen print with vinyl without the fear of messing up a shirt. Practice your screen printing on a piece of fabric and make a DIY door hanger with the best prints!

If you are hooked on screen printing already, this is an easy project to make in bulk to sell at craft fairs or gather up your girlfriends and host a craft night.  With screen printing, you can use one vinyl cut as a stencil to screen print the design over and over.  Make one sign or make dozens – with just one piece of vinyl!
