I know it’s only February, but I am feeling ready for spring! It’s been a long, snowy winter here in Connecticut. I am ready for sunshine, bright colors, and warmth. Just thinking about the upcoming season makes me smile.
Have you ever made a reverse canvas craft? These fun, farmhouse style canvases are so easy and inexpensive to make. I am happy to share the simple step by step tutorial here with you.
Materials needed to make an Easter Bunny Reverse Canvas:
- canvas (I had purchased this multipack of 10 inch by 10 inch canvases from Michaels.)
- glue gun and glue sticks
- utility knife
- scrapbook paper
- Cricut Explore Air 2 machine
- stain or dark wax (I used Annie Sloan’s Dark Wax)
- foam brush or disposable make up wedge (for applying dark wax)
- paper towel or rag
- four pieces of ribbon of different widths, in coordinating patterns
Directions to make an Easter Bunny Reverse Canvas:
- Turn your canvas so that the back is facing you. Carefully use your utility knife to cut the canvas and
remove the canvas from the wood frame it is wrapped around.
- Trace the canvas around the outside of the frame. Trim the canvas inside of the traced line so that it fits on the back of the frame.
- Paint, stain, or wax the frame. (I applied Annie Sloan’s Dark Wax with a make-up wedge and wiped off excess with a paper towel.)
- Carefully use your glue gun to glue the canvas to the back of the frame. Attach it so the natural colored side is facing the front and the white side is facing the back.
- Search for a bunny template in Cricut Design Space and cut it out using a Cricut Explore Air 2 machine.
- Using your glue gun, glue the paper bunny onto the canvas.
- Make a small bow with a thin ribbon to embellish. You might like to add a small pom-pom for the tail. (I thought I had some, but I had left them at school!)
- To make a bow, layer your pieces of ribbon with the widest on the bottom.
- Gather or pinch the ribbon together. Use an over, under pattern and then tie with the thinnest ribbon.
- Trim your bow to your desired length and glue it to the frame.
Which side of canvas do you use for reverse canvas?
You use the back side of the canvas that is a natural color.
Of course, I made mine blue and white. Recently, I have been loving all things blue and white. This past week, I made these simple, but elegant Decoupage Easter Eggs.
This DIY Easter Bunny Reverse Canvas is such a cute and easy craft! It is so affordable too! This project only cost a couple of dollars to make. Wouldn’t this make a great Easter decoration?
