Today I have a farmhouse Easter print free printable for you! I love making Easter decorations, as the Easter holidays are my favorite! If you are like me at all, you are always on the lookout for fun Easter activities. This printable craft can be a great addition to your home and include quality time crafting – or quality time with your family. Springtime is such an exciting time of the year. Everything is fresh, fun, and the wildflowers are in bloom.
For years I thought that creating a fun Easter home was just for when you have younger children. But the older my child gets, the more excited I get to decorate our home.
Are you ready to add some colorful and creative flair to your Easter decorations? Look no further than this easy DIY project that uses a free printable, a canvas from the dollar tree, and some acrylic paint.
I designed this printable to be a full 8-1/2″ x 11″, but you can print at whatever percentage that will work for your frame. Out of all the Easter sign ideas I've created, I think this is my favorite.
First, gather your materials. You'll need:

- 8″ x 10″ canvas from the Dollar Tree
- This free printable (it's a pdf file you can print)
- Color printer – this is my fave!
- Acrylic paint
- Baby wipes
- Liquid glue
I love using the frame from a canvas, as they affordable and stainable. All you have to do is remove the canvas and the staples first. That is the only “hard work” of the project, and it isn't that hard. I save my canvas for other projects. But you can also use a picture frame, it's whatever you choose.
Now it's time to paint your canvas frame. Choose a color that complements your printable and use either a paintbrush or a baby wipe. I like using baby wipes for these because it will dry fast and look like wood stain when we are done. Let it dry completely before adding your image to it. I went with the Espresso color from DecoArt paint. It's an acrylic paint that's one of my go-to colors.
Print out your Easter print free download. trim it down to the size of your frame, then set it aside. The outside of my frame is 8″ x 10″, and the wood is 1/2″ wide. So I cut mine down to 7-3/4″ x 9-3/4. (Please keep in mind that this printable is for personal use only.)
Once your frame is dry, you can start adding your printable. Use a small amount of glue or adhesive to attach the printable to the back of your frame. Smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles carefully to ensure it looks neat and tidy.
And just like that, your project is complete! Add a cute addition, like a carrot or bunny, to each corner. Display this on your Easter mantel. Get creative and have fun with it, this project is a lot of fun.
This project is also a fun way to spend time with your kids of all ages. You can pick who does what part of the project and together create. The whole family can get in on this, especially when you let your older kids have a say in who does what. While pulling staples may not be ideal for your young kids, your older teens may love that part best. My daughter loves doing that part! You can pick which family member does which part. This is a fun crafts idea for the whole family – or for you to have time to yourself crafting away!
Finally, step back and admire your handiwork! You now have a beautiful and unique Easter decoration that you made yourself. You can hang it up on a wall or prop it up on a mantle or table for all to see.
Different ways to use this printable:
- Size it down smaller and turn it into an Easter time handmade card
- Cupcake toppers (each carrot can be a topper, the prices can be a topper, and each word at the top can be a topper)
- Size it down and use it as Easter treats wrappers
- Print several and use them as Easter egg hunt signs – or carrot hunt, which we do in our family
- Print it out and cover the carrots with an Easter chick or a cute Easter bunny
- Make these as gifts for your fellow Sunday school friends
- Trim it out with spring flowers in the lower corners
This DIY project is not only easy and affordable, but it also allows you to customize your Easter decor to fit your personal style. You can choose from a variety of free printables and paint colors to make it truly your own. Plus, it's a fun activity to do with family and friends, or even by yourself.
So why not try out this DIY Easter fun decor idea and bring some festive cheer to your home this holiday season?
