Easter door hangers don’t have to be over the top or extra plush and pink. I mean, who doesn’t love a cute and fluffy bunny over anything else but I get it. Sometimes you just want that classic farmhouse or minimal style without the over pastel of Easter decor.
This DIY Easter Egg Door Hanger is so simple to make. If you have a Cricut (or another vinyl cutter) and a Target nearby, you are in luck. You could also create this by purchasing any type of pallet Easter egg you can find.
I thought about adding flower cutouts but it was too much. I like to keep things minimal because trust me. I can get crazy with some crafting glue and scissors sometimes.
I found this particular pallet Easter cutout at Target in the Bullseye’s Playground area (also known as the Target Dollar Spot). It runs for $3. After this year Target might not release them again. However, there are so many online tutorials about making your own pallet Easter egg.
What do you need to make a DIY Easter Egg Door Hanger?
- Easter egg pallet
- Cricut machine
How do you make an Easter door hanger?
I used a teal and gray color of vinyl but you can use any color that fits within your decor. The fonts that I used were Sweetheart Script and Twentieth Century. Both easily found online. Cricut is my personal choice for a vinyl cutter but you can use whatever machine works best for you.
For this particular wood pallet Easter egg craft, the last name measured 1.5 inches high and 6 inches long. The length measurement will depend on the size of your last name. However, I wouldn’t go much higher than 1.5 inches in height. This will ensure that the font properly fits within the pallet.
I shortened the height for the year to about 1 inch. I then offset it just a hair from our last name on one pallet under. I didn’t want the year font to overshadow our name but still be well seen. I am pretty proud that we are on our 10-year wedding anniversary when this post is published.
Once you have your vinyl cut, it is all about lining up the placement you prefer and placing. Make sure you rub the vinyl well into your project so that there isn’t any pealing. You might want to run some Mod Podge over the top to ensure that everything stays in place.
If you are planning to place this outdoors, you need to protect the wood against water damage. Before starting this DIY, use a clear sealer over the front and back of the egg pallet. You will also want to seal it again after you have placed the vinyl. There is no guarantee against weathering.
This DIY is just that simple. It creates a farmhouse or minimal style to any door this Easter and spring. I personally love ours. I feel like it completed my spring decorating beautifully.
