    We’ve also put together this step-by-step guides to making a  lovely spring canvas card, that will brighten up any room. 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

    • Hessian
    • Scissors
    • Card
    • A4 stretched canvasses
    • Glue
    • Bunny and bird templates
    • A4 Acetate
    • Glue
    • Acrylic paint
    • Stencil brush
    • Large pom pom

    To make

    Cut and stick a piece of hessian in the middle of a stretched canvas with glue, and leave to dry.

    Print the bunny template on a sheet of A4 acetate. Cut out the bunny shape to create a stencil.

    Spray some repositionable adhesive on the back of the stencil, then place on the hessian.

    Using a stencil brush, apply a little pink acrylic paint in a circular motion over the stencil. Carefully lift the stencil, and allow to dry.

    Glue a large pom pom to the bunny’s bottom.

    Create a bird picture by making a stencil as before, but using blue paint for the bird and green for the leaves.

    Glue each hessian picture onto a piece of folded card.
