Hi there! It’s Robin from A Home To Grow Old In, and I’m back to share some spring inspiration with you. It’s no secret around my home that I love decorating for all the seasons and holidays. Even if I only put a few decorations out, it can completely change the feel of a room. The downside is that decorating can be expensive, but creating a few Easter decor things myself helps to save some money, and it’s fun! This cute fabric wrapped canvas with a bunny is so easy to make and can use up some fabric scraps you already have on hand.

Here’s what you need:
- 8″x10″ stretched canvas
- 2 different kinds of scrap fabric (1/3 yard is plenty)
- fabric glue
- card stock
- spray adhesive
- pom pom or cotton ball
Before you get started, iron out any wrinkles in the fabric. Cut the fabric so that there is enough of an edge to completely wrap around the canvas. I found it easiest to spray the back of the fabric with the spray adhesive, and lay the canvas on top of the sticky side of the fabric. It helped to hold the fabric into place while I was securing the edges.
I cut a notch from each corner to help fold the long side over first. It kind of looked like a tab that I folded over. The edge was then secured into place with a small amount of fabric glue. I ran a line of glue along the long edge of the canvas to adhere the fabric to the long side.
Next, I folded and glued down the wide edge to wrap around the sides. Glue any overlapping fabric to the back of the canvas.
Now, to start on the bunny. I printed out a bunny on cardstock and cut it out. You can download the bunny I created for this project here. Then, I sprayed one side of the cardstock bunny with spray adhesive and adhered that side to a square of fabric. I let it dry for just a few minutes and cut off the excess fabric with scissors.
I noticed a little bit of fraying around the edges of the bunny, so I trimmed it off and applied a very small amount of fabric glue around the entire edge with my fingertip. Be careful to only get the glue on the edge! The glue dries clear but it has a sheen that is noticeable if you get a lot of glue on the front of the fabric. It’s worked great, and I haven’t had any more fraying.
I applied some of the fabric glue to the back side of the bunny and placed it in the middle of the fabric canvas. Then, I put a dab of glue on a pom pom and put it on the bunny as a tail.
That’s all there is to it! Check out how cute this little guy turned out! One of my favorite things to decorate seasonally is our fireplace, but I have a hard time finding decorations to fit our super narrow mantel. This canvas works perfectly for it, and it was so easy to do. Now, I’m thinking about a making a second canvas with an Easter egg on it! It’s perfect Easter decor for spring!
