Easter bunny canvas craft for kids

When I was little, we didn’t craft for Easter that much. I guess it wasn’t “a thing” back then? I don’t know – but I feel like I was completely deprived of pom poms and pastel colored tissue paper! I’m just kidding actually . . . but really, I didn’t do a lot of Easter crafts for kids when I was little.

Maybe a bunny with cotton balls and glue or something like that. This simple decoupage project takes the cotton ball bunny up a notch! If you are looking for a fun craft for kids that works for Easter and beyond, this bunny canvas is for you.

Grab your kids’ craft supplies – a little bit of tissue paper, paint, Mod Podge . .   and you’ll get to use those pom poms I was deprived of too. Learn how to make it below!

Easter Bunny Canvas

Gather These Supplies

  • Canvas – 8 x 10 or 9 x 12
  • Mod Podge Washout for Kids
  • Apple Barrel paint – Parakeet
  • White tissue paper
  • Bunny silhouette (you can also Google one)
  • Pom-poms
  • Paintbrush
  • Pencil
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors
Painting a canvas with bright green paint

Paint your canvas with several coats of the paint and let dry.

Printed out bunny silhouette

Print the bunny silhouette to fit your canvas – a sitting up bunny works perfectly for this purpose.

Tracing the bunny silhouette onto the green canvas

Cut out the bunny silhouette and trace around the edge with a pencil, directly on top of the painted canvas.

Wrapping tissue paper around the end of a pencil

Cut several small squares of white tissue paper. Take one square of tissue paper and wrap it around the eraser end of your pencil. Pour some Mod Podge out onto a palette or piece of paper and dip your tissue paper/pencil into the Mod Podge.

Placing tissue paper into the wet Mod Podge on the canvas

Push the tissue paper down onto the canvas within the boundaries of the bunny silhouette. Pull up the pencil and it should leave the tissue paper behind.

Keep adding tissue paper in the same way until the entire bunny silhouette is filled in. You’ll see if there are any spaces that need to be filled in when you stand back a little.

Adding pink pom poms to the bunny on canvas

Glue pom poms where the nose, eye, and tail should go using craft glue.

Then hang up our bunny canvas! Now I’m getting excited . . . because I’m wondering what other silhouette art I can make with tissue.
