First, line the frame with painter's tape.
Mix equal parts white acrylic paint and turquoise black board paint. Paint onto the main part of the frame - you may need two coats! Wait until dry, and remove painter's tape.
Now apply painter's tape to the inside of the frame, to avoid spill over. Mix equal parts white acrylic and pink black board paint, and paint the outside of the frame. Wait until dry, and remove painter's tape.
Print out an 'Easter Egg Hunt' sign, and use a soft pencil to mark the back of the paper. Secure the paper to the frame, and use a ballpoint pen to trace over each letter. Press hard!
Remove your paper, you should see a faint outline. Use your chalk pen to trace around the letters, and fill in.
Decorate the outside of the frame with leaves, and you’re done. Now there's nothing left to do but hang up your sign... and start hiding those eggs!
