I’m so excited for Spring and everything that comes with that time of year. It’s like a fresh beginning when all the trees start budding and plants sprout up from the ground. It’s a bit early to start thinking about flowers blooming since there’s still snow on the ground, so I set out to bring some colorful cheer into our house with this adorable Easter canvas art.
The kids and I created this super easy and fun Easter canvas art with tissue paper! My kids (ages 4&6) were able to do this craft independently with just a little bit of help getting set up.
How to Make your Easter Egg Canvas Art
- Tissue Paper
- White Glue
- Paper plate or bowl to pour glue into
- 8″x10″Art Canvas
- Water in a cup
- This FREE Printable Easter Egg Template
- Cut Tissue paper into small squares and triangles. It doesn’t have to be perfect, in fact it will look better if its not perfect!
- Pour some glue into your plate or bowl. (I used a paper plate for easy cleanup).
- Now start creating! Place a piece of tissue paper onto your egg template and use the paintbrush to paint the glue over top of the tissue paper. *I found it went on easier if you watered the glue down, or just dip your paintbrush in some water before dipping it in the glue*
- Once you have covered your whole egg with tissue paper, let it dry.
- When your tissue paper is dry cut the egg shape out and glue it onto your canvas! VOILA! Beautiful Easter canvas art that you can enjoy year after year!
I hope you have fun making your own Easter Egg Art!!

Love this. Way to share with us all and be unstoppable. Cheers!
These are really cute! I did a similar one in the shape of a cross last year so I’ll have to try the egg shape this year 🙂
The cross is a great idea too, and such a good reminder of what Easter is really all about! I’ll have to try that! 😉
Love this!! I am going to do this with my kids. They are on break this week so we need lots to do!! Thank you for sharing
Hope you enjoy your break with your kids… It definitely helps to have lots of activities to keep them occupied!
I love this. So elegant looking, but so easy even a noncrafty Dad like me can do it. I’m so going to try this.
Thank you Dave, yes it’s super easy! My kids did it with hardly any help from me, and they look great hanging on the wall!
