DIY Bunny Canvas

With Easter right around the corner and spring under way, I decided I wanted to create a fun and seasonal piece of art work for my home! After thinking a lot about it, and taking a very inspirational trip to the craft store, I came up with this really cute DIY Bunny Canvas art idea and I am thrilled to be able to share it with you! I think this is a perfect decoration to keep out all year long and the colors and pattern are perfect for spring and summer decor!
- Americana Multi-Surface Satin Acrylics 2oz - Soft Jade
- 9" by 12" wrapped canvas
- Recollections fabric adhesive sheets (Vintage Romance)
- Burlap flowers
- Foam paint brush
- Hot glue gun
Oh my goodness isn't this bunny adorable!? With a little help from DecoArt and a few supplies from Michaels, this project did not take very long to create! Here is how to create your own!
First I began by painting my canvas with my craft paint. I am addicted to the Americana Multi-Surface line of paint! It is perfect on nearly any surface and the color options are among my absolute favorite! I painted the canvas with two coats of paint and then let it dry completely.
While my paint was drying I brought out my Silhouette and cut a bunny shape out of my adhesive fabric. It worked perfectly! And I just love the fabric! This vintage pattern is just perfect for springtime and I think a bunny looks adorable out of it!
Next I simply removed my adhesive fabric bunny and placed it carefully onto my painted canvas. The adhesive fabric is really sticky and sticks to itself easily so be careful when handling this.
After my fabric bunny was placed on my painted canvas, I used my hot glue gun to add a little burlap flower to the bunny's neck. I love how this adds a three dimensional aspect to the art and really accentuates the cute little spring fabric bunny.
I think this is really cute in my home and I will definitely be keeping it up all spring long!
