These lovely spring canvas cards will brighten up any room and put recipients in the Easter spirit. Set the scene with birds and bunnies galore (which can easily be composed by using a stencil). The kids will be proud to display their simple yet elegant designs on the wall, complete with small embellishments like pom poms that make the drawings come to life.
This craft is better suited for older children as assembly is a little advanced for younger kids. With these seven easy steps, the finished project will be ready in no time. Even your teens will want to hop on board this activity, as it is a crowd-pleaser all around.
You will need
Step 1Cut and stick a piece of hessian in the middle of a stretched canvas with glue, and leave to dry.
Step 2Print the bunny template on a sheet of A4 acetate. Cut out the bunny shape to create a stencil.
Step 3Spray some repositionable adhesive on the back of the stencil, then place on the hessian.
Step 4Using a stencil brush, apply a little pink acrylic paint in a circular motion over the stencil. Carefully lift the stencil, and allow to dry.
Step 5Glue a large pom pom to the bunny’s bottom.
Step 6Create a bird picture by making a stencil as before, but using blue paint for the bird and green for the leaves.
Step 7Glue each hessian picture onto a piece of folded card.
