After having so much fun making a Valentine’s Day button heart canvas, I decided to try making a Easter-themed canvas to brighten up my walls for Spring. Looking at the pastel buttons and the yellow and blue striped canvas makes me happy.
- 1 8×10 blank canvas
- Acrylic paint
- Foam brushes
- Variety of buttons (different sizes and colors)
- Tacky glue
- Masking tape
Lay masking tape in stripes along canvas, wrapping tape around the back. Wherever you have not taped will get painted – you can make stripes even or do a combination of thick and thin stripes. Be creative!
Using whatever colors match your decor (or your buttons. Or whatever makes you happy), paint uncovered canvas stripes. Let dry. (Note: I didn’t press my masking tape securely enough onto the canvas, and I had a little bit of messy paint around the edges. Next time, I’ll be more careful).
Print out the Easter egg template here: Top half and Bottom half. I just used the same template that was used to make my Easter Egg Button Wreath, but you can use any egg shape or free-hand it if you’re brave enough.
When your paint is completely dry, remove the masking tape and loosely tape the stencil in place (be sure to only use the tape on non-painted areas).
Place tacky glue on the back of buttons and glue onto the canvas.
I used a variety of sizes. Luckily, the tacky glue allows you to shift the buttons around a little to get them in the perfect place before they dry).
Remove the egg stencil and let the glue dry.
That’s it! Now find a place to hang your Easter Egg Canvas Wall Hanging.
I think I may just have to make one of these for each holiday. They’re FUN to make, and come together so fast. My kind of craft!

I love it!
What a cute project!! I love button crafts and this is so bright and perfect for Easter!
My mom and grandma both collected buttons, and I have a smaller collection myself. I love finding button crafts…and thanks to my oldest daughter, I’m hooked on button canvases! :)
I LOVE buttons! I’m always collecting them, and looking for fun projects to use them on. This definitely looks like a fun idea!
I’m jealous of your coffee can full of buttons! My Grandma was a button collector and as a kid, I was fascinated with them!

I love this idea! I have a big coffee can full of buttons that would be great for this project.
Thank YOU! I wish I had more time to be crafty and cook and read…I just stay VERY busy, that’s all!

Lolli, Laundry for 5 kids and then you still have time to make adorable creative wall art like this. Wow. That’s all I have to say. Thank you for being a part of our party SHARE IT one more time, Saturdays. It wouldn’t be a party without you! Have a great week! Rose, FineCraftGuild.com
I love button crafts and this one is adorable. Your stripes are perfect – thank you for sharing such a great tutorial with Share It One More Time. Cathy
This is Darling!! I love the stripes behind it!
This is so pretty. It will be a great addition to my daughter’s room
I agree! Simple enough for even the non-crafty. :) I hung it by my front door and I love having the bright, cheery colors greet me when I come home!
I’ve got quite a collection of buttons now…and canvases. Now I just need to find more wall space (or friends to give things away to!).
Ahh! Thank you for saying that! I never considered myself a crafty person, but I’m actually really enjoying it now!
Thank you! My daughter got me hooked on button canvas art. It’s so easy, but it really turns out nice. :)

That is so super adorable. I love it! I am going to try to make one of these with my daughter!
You always have the cutest crafts! I saw a similar picture to this on pinterest using ribbon. I think it would be cute to have a button one and a ribbon one for decor.
So cute! I love that it is simple enough to do with kids and pretty enough to use for real decor.

I love the colors you chose. That is just perfect for spring. I need to hunt through my button jar!
