My youngest is allergic to cats and dogs. However, she was born with a nurturer’s soul. Her current obsession is bunnies. She wants an angora rabbit with every fiber of her being. But, I am not convinced that she can take care of one or that she isn’t allergic to them.
But, she loves all things bunny and since it’s spring and bunnies are everywhere, I get to hear her arguments on why she needs an angora almost every hour. She has bunny sweaters, pajamas, stuffed bunnies–you name it.
We’re moving soon and she wants to decorate her new room in aqua and white. And bunnies. So we made this Easter/Bunny Lovers wall art. (I didn’t put “Happy Easter” on it per her request.)
Easy Easter Decoupage Idea
- 8×10 canvas
- Aqua acrylic craft paint
- Paint Brush
- Foam Brush
- White Pom Pom
- Easter cut files from Ruffles and Rainboots *
- Decoupage Medium/Mod Podge
- Pretty Scrapbook paper
- Cricut or sissors (the shapes are easy to cut by hand if you don’t have a Cricut or Silhouette)
Take a dry foam brush. Dip in the acrylic paint and lightly paint the canvas using horizontal strokes. We wanted a dry brushed, light background so did not care that the white from the canvas could be seen in the strokes. This method also means that the paint dries in minutes.
Use a cutting machine or scissors to cut out the bunny shape while the painted canvas dries. If using scissors, it may be easier to cut out the shape on card stock to use as a template.
Evenly coat the back (front?), underside, of the bunny with the decoupage medium. If you put too light of a coat of glue on then you will end up with wrinkles. (It really has been a long time since I decoupaged because I forgot and got wrinkles!!!)
Place the bunny, glue side down and use glue to attach the pom pom. You are done.
How quick was this cute project?? This adorable and easy decoupage idea would be fun in an Easter Basket for a Crafty Girl!
