You're NOT going to believe what I did with this piece of scrap plywood, you've got to see it!

Updated: Feb 15

I cut door hangers almost daily, so therefore I always have scrap pieces of plywood cluttering up our shed. I really hate throwing any of it away, so anything I can do to use it makes me happy. This time I knew exactly what I wanted to use this scrap piece for.

I had recently demonstrated how to use graphite paper to put lettering on a door hanger and this got me thinking about that project. I found an image of 3 crosses and that's where it all started. Thinking about Easter the pastel colors came to mind, so I started by painting the base.

I painted the base white, then dry brushed with both pink and purple. I purposefully wanted it to have a kind of rough non-blended look. I then taped down the image of the crosses on to the sign and used my graphite paper to trace the crosses on.

Here's a quick video of my transferring and painting the crosses, super quick and easy. I bought the graphite paper from Hobby lobby, you can use it multiple times. Once traced on to the wood you can start painting. I used glossy black Anita's craft paint from Hobby Lobby.


I used my cricut to design the greeting and painted it with a stencil. I just think this sign is gorgeous and perfect for the Easter holiday.

Now that my sign is finished and sealed with a coat of polyurethane. I get to work turning this into a beautiful Easter wreath. I purchased the greenery from Hobby Lobby and the flowers from Michaels.

This is a gorgeous wreath and the sign matches perfectly with the beautiful flowers. I chose to use a simple purple and burlap ribbon bow. It didn't need anything to fancy. Sometimes simple is best!

Can you believe this all started with a scrap piece of plywood. I love this wreath and I'm sure it will sell fast. Here's the link if you think it would be best on your door!!
