Complete step by step instructions and video tutorials below!
Easter decorations are so fun to craft, especially when they include cute little bunnies!
I received this wood bunny cut-out from Oriental Trading and I knew right away what I was going to do with it.
In this tutorial, I will also teach you how to create a design to fit a specific shape, like this bunny sign. So you get two tutorials in one!

Hoppy Easter Sign Video Tutorial

Creating a Design to Fit Any Shape in Cricut Design Space
The first step is creating a design that will fit inside the shape of the sign. Instead of breaking all of these steps out I created a video. I think it may be easier to watch every step then try to type it all out.
If you have any questions about this process please reach out. I am happy to help.
Cutting the Design Using a Cricut Explore
Once the design is how you like it, select "Make It" and send the design to be cut.
Weed the design and remove the excess. I like to start in the corner with the weeding tool.
Glitter vinyl can tear, so be careful as you are weeding.
I wanted the design to fit on a sheet of 12" x 12" vinyl so I did not attach the ears or nose. Those will be easy enough to apply by themselves.
Cut the ears and nose away from the design with a pair of scissors.
Applying the Vinyl Design to the Sign
Cut a piece of StrongGrip Transfer Tape just a bit larger than the cut vinyl. Lay the transfer tape over the top of the vinyl and press it into place with a scraper.
Slowly peel back the paper backing. You want to make sure that the vinyl is now sticking to the transfer sheet and peeling up from its own paper backing.
Center the design over the wood bunny sign and press it into place using the scraper tool.
Peel back the transfer sheet. This time you want the vinyl design to stick to the wood and not the transfer sheet.
Repeat for the ears and nose.
Isn't it so cute?
The design fits the shape of my bunny sign perfectly!
I decided to hot glue some ribbon to the back of mine so that it can hang on my front door. I love it so much!
