I don’t have much in the way of Easter decor because I either sell it or give it away. I made something similar a few years ago for some co-workers and was going to go home and make myself some and never did. Do you do that?
I had a bunch of prints that I was selling at our last few shows and had a few leftover. You can find hundreds of free printables of your own by going to Google or Pinterest.
Here is what I did:
I purchased a variety of canvases that were 50% off at JoAnn’s. Score!
I then painted them with one coat of cream acrylic paint. While the paint was still wet and using a dry foam brush I streaked a brown stain (or watered down brown paint) across each of the canvases and then let dry.
I cut the prints to size and Mod Podged them into place on each canvas. I like to add Mod Podge to the canvas and the back of the print. I find this helps to keep the print from bubbling up too much. I then painted another coat of Mod Podge over the top and sides. The prints may bubble up a bit and if you’re careful you can work them out. I don’t mind a few bubbles; it adds to the character. Also, after the canvas dries the bubbles should flatten out. Let dry.
Working one at a time add another coat of Mod Podge and sprinkle with a clear glitter. Shake off the excess and let dry. Once they were dry I rubbed some of the glitter off so it wasn’t so thick.
On the small one I didn’t apply the bunny to the canvas. I coated it with two coats of Mod Podge and let dry. I also applied the glitter to the canvas and then added a dot of glue to the back of the bunny to attach and put a straight pin in the top.
Lickity Split. Took about two hours including drying time. These could be embellished in so many ways. Flowers, banners, words, etc.
