Quick And Easy Easter Craft

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.

I also share some Easter Egg Hunt ideas over on What’s Cooking With Ruthie‘s blog.  If you get a sec go check it out.
