Easter Canvas Tutorial...

Hello! Okay, my camera had some issues, or my computer. I lost a lot of photos. But we are not going to panic. You don't need all the photos for this simple tutorial.  (if you need more photos, you can refer to my Valentine's Canvas tutorial. Very similar projects.)

Darling. Frugal. About 1 hour of your time. 

I know Easter is this weekend, but I am going to leave it up for spring. 

All you need is a 16 x 20 canvas. Hobby Lobby or Walmart. Then a 16x20 piece of fabric. I went all springy on mine. Love it. But would love to see someone do it in a more modern print too... Mod Podge, your fabric to the canvas. Press out bubbles.

Print out these link 1  link 2  files on regular 8.5 x 11 paper. Tape them together at the notch (you will see what I mean). Using the bunny template and white wool felt, cut the bunny out. I found that cutting it with a small blade rotary cutter was the way to go with this project.

Then I just used spray adhesive and placed it on the almost dry mod podge fabric layer.

The nice thing about these canvases is they are super light. You can prop them just about anywhere without nail holes. Just a fun spring touch.  Hope you make one too!

And one more bit of spring decor. I lined the back of my hutch with Michael Miller Pillow and Maxfield fabric. So bright! I am going to bring lots of these bright colors into my living room this year. Hope you like!

Also, our fabulous sponsor HyperNoodle has all these new fabrics! (some are on the way in the mail right now to me!) She would like to offer Quilt Story readers 10% off any order of 1 yard or more today and tomorrow. Use the coupon code QUILTSTORY1.

Did you just wrap that fabric around a board of some sort and slide it into place? I was just wondering, because that would be a fun way to switch out background fabric depending on the season (or your mood). Thanks for sharing, very cute!

I love the bunny! And so easy!!! Thanks.
I also like the background in your hutch. It really dresses it up.
