This adorable bunny canvas can be made in any color, and is perfect for using up leftover tissue paper. This is a great Easter craft for kids!
When I was little, we didn’t do as many crafts for Easter. I guess it wasn’t “a thing” then? I don’t know – but I feel like I’m totally missing out on pom poms and pastel colored tissue paper!
I’m really kidding. , , But really, I didn’t make a lot of Easter crafts for kids when I was little. The focus was mostly on baskets and candy (no pun intended but we were few).
I might have made a bunny out of cotton balls and glue or something. The simple decoupage project I’m sharing with you today takes the basic cotton ball bunny up a notch!
If you’re looking for a fun craft for kids that works for Easter and beyond, then this bunny canvas is for you.
Take your kids’ craft materials – some tissue paper, craft paint, Mod Podge. , And you’ll also get to use up the pom poms that I was missing out on. do you still feel sorry for me?
If you’re ready to join in, find out how to make it below!
canvas for kids
gather these supplies
Paint your canvas with several layers of paint and let dry. You’ll want to let it dry completely between coats.
find the bunny
Print the bunny silhouette to fit your canvas – a seated bunny works perfectly for this purpose. You would not want to do anything complicated. The tissue paper needs to be simple and large enough to make the shape.
Cut out the bunny silhouette and trace around the edge with a pencil, directly on top of the painted canvas.
apply tissue paper
Cut several small squares of white tissue paper. Take a square of tissue paper and wrap it around the eraser end of your pencil. Pour some Mod Podge onto a palette or piece of paper and dip your tissue paper/pencil into the Mod Podge.
Press the tissue paper down onto the canvas within the confines of the bunny silhouette. Pull the pencil up and it should leave behind the tissue paper.
Keep adding tissue paper in the same way until the entire bunny silhouette is filled. When you stand back a bit you will see if there is any space that needs to be filled.
Using craft glue, glue the pom poms where the nose, eyes and tail should be.
Allow to dry completely before displaying! I’m sorry, I can’t help but adore the shape of her beautiful tail. I think this is the biggest pom pom I have ever seen.
Hang your Easter Bunny canvas now! I admit, this project got me excited. , , Because I’m wondering what other silhouette art I can make from tissue. Let me know what you think in the comments!
