Today I am sharing with you how to make this adorable yet simple Bunny Canvas Decor project.
For my mantel I needed one more touch of something and decided some type of canvas piece would be fun. I decided on the fabric because I have never done it before and wanted to try it out. I also wanted to test out my fabric blade that I got for the silhouette machine. So after a little planning here and there this project came about. I hope you enjoy it!
First I picked out two pieces of fabric to match my decor.
Cut the fabric for the background to be big enough to fold over to the back of the canvas and secure down.
For cutting the bunny I used my Silhouette machine with the fabric blade. This blade is the same as the regular one just a different color so you will know to not use it on paper- it will dull the blade and not be able to cut fabric.
I took a clip-art image of a bunny and traced the outline on my Silhouette Studio program
Cut the bunny as instructed in the program
And Ta-da this is what you get :)
You could also print a clip-art image from your computer, cut it out, trace it onto a piece of fabric and cut the bunny out by hand.
To secure down the fabric I brushed on a very thin coat of Mod Podge onto the front of the canvas to get the fabric to really hold.
Pull the sides of the fabric to the back and staple down tightly.
Add a thin layer of Mod Podge to the back of the fabric bunny cut out
Apply bunny to the fabric covered canvas
I then took matching tulle and cut it into 2.5 inch wide strips. I only used 2 of them and the length of the tulle that came off the bolt was 60 inches so they were 2.5x60.
Take both strips and wrap them around your 4 fingers like in the picture above.
This is what you will have once you have wrapped the two.
Cut a little piece of scrap tulle and use it as a string to tie across the center of the folded tulle
Then take the scissors through the two ends and cut all the loops to be open. You will then take and fluff up the tulle into a ball. You will literllay pull some of the tulle in all directions until you get what you want.
Then lastly hot glue it onto the tail area of the bunny.
TA-DA All done!!!
Here is a little peak at my Easter mantel this year.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter and have fun making some decor for the holiday as well!
