Easy Spring Art
Since it’s going to be in the 50s this week and a lot of my outdoor flowers and plants are starting to come up, I guess it’s spring. In the spirit of spring, I thought I’d share an easy spring art project.
You can do this with any shape, but I chose a bunny because it works for spring and Easter. This is also a great project for kids. It’d be a great Easter gift for family members.
Owen helped me make a bunny. And let me just say, it’s extremely difficult when trying to supervise a 2 year old with glue AND take photos with your expensive camera at the same time.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Waverly Inspirations fabric … Walmart
Mod Podge … Walmart
foam brush … Walmart
scissors or rotary cutter
bunny printable … HWTM
double sided tape
Start by printing the bunny printable onto card stock. Then, cut your fabric into 1/2″ to 3/4″ strips.
Turn the card stock printable over so the bunny is facing the surface. Apply Mod Podge glue over the bunny (you should be able to see the outline of the bunny).
Lay the strips of fabric on the glue, slightly overlapping the fabric strips.
Apply a coat of glue over the fabric.
You may have to assist your little artist and smooth out their glue glops.
Let the glue dry for an hour or two.
One the glue is dry, cut out the bunny with sharp scissors.
After cutting out the bunny, I used double sided tape to attach to a plain sheet of card stock. And then I put it in a white frame I had laying around.
It’s a perfect touch of spring on our entryway table, don’t you think?
And remember, you don’t have to stop at a bunny. You could do a tulip, butterfly, Easter egg, chick, lamb, etc.
I love it!
Super cute! And that lamp!!!
Darling! I did not realize Walmart had Waverly fabrics. I need to check that out.
How cool, what a way to bring in the spring and to get the grandboys to do something other than play ” shoot em’ up ” if it involves scissors and making some sort of mess they’re game..LOL Thank-you for the great idea.
Chelsea- I love it and also the fact that Owen was able to do it with you. I just know my grandkids would love to pick an Easter/Spring image and make one soon ! Thanks, as always, for the pretty inspiration ! Hugs, Dorinda
So cute! Owen did a great job. I love your lamp – where did you get it?
Something different. I like that!.
I just painted a carrot and a “chickie” on wood and love the way they have turned out.
Don’t know how to send you a picture but would if I could.
Love bunnies. This is one I will have to try making. Cute little helper!
I absolutely love that craft! A great idea!
I’m going to try this with scrapbook papers today, since I have some donated ones. Won’t have quite the same effect, but it will look great in a dollar store frame. Working with 22 kids this week.
Love the idea I will defo try it
