Create the perfect starting point to your egg hunt by creating bouncing calligraphy signage with the sign blanks available online and in store at Hobbycraft.


You Will Need

Wooden Arrow Sign »

White Acrylic Paint »

Blue Acrylic Paint »

Large and Small Paintbrush »


How to Make

1. Paint wooden sign using white acrylic paint and leave to dry

2. Sketch out your lettering lightly in pencil, erasing and redrawing until it looks as you wish. 

Top tip! You could trace lettering using tracing paper and transfer it over to the wood by scribbling on the back – just remember you’ll need to trace the other side of the paper too in order for the letters to be round the right way.

3. Paint the lettering using a bright acrylic paint and a fine paintbrush
