Framed Easter Art Project

Framed Easter Art Project

I found myself unable to sleep yet again last night, and pulled out some of the spring paper pads I picked up last week at Michael’s. If you follow us on Instagram, you might have seen what I was up to. I’m one of those people who has a lot of scrapbooking supplies yet never seems to do much of anything with it. You could say that I’m more of a collector than a crafter. I’m excited to show you that I actually used my scrapbooking stash last night, and did a framed Easter art project.

This art project is so easy. Here’s all you need to make it:

5×7 picture frame
assortment of spring scrapbooking paper
white card stock
craft glue
X-Acto Knife or other sharp cutting tool

Measure and cut 2 pieces of white card stock to fit into your frame.

Using a sharp blade, cut the shape of an egg from one of the pieces of card stock, leaving a little bit of a border around the cut-out. Mine came out pretty good, but you might want to make an egg template to trace.

Cut strips from assorted scrapbooking paper measuring 1/2″ x 5″, enough to cover the 7 inch length of the frame (slightly overlapping).

Starting at the top, glue strips of paper onto the solid piece of card stock – slightly overlapping each piece as you go. Glue the piece of card stock with the egg cut-out on top, so that the colorful strips of paper peek through.

Place your beautiful work of art into the frame and enjoy!

    I absolutely love this craft idea and want to make it soon. I have the frame that I want to use and I need to get the other supplies! I am so excited about making this!

    This is a great eco friendly craft. I could see re using old frames and tissue paper or wrapping paper left over from last year (am I the only one who stashes these things away?) you could use cardboard that had been either wrapped or colored (hello glitter) for the templates and white board. A fun idea to let my kids do… with the recycled materials. They don’t get to touch my scrapbooking stash!

    This is cute! I’m seeing it for the first time a bit late but a cute idea for next year. Wish I was a bit more crafty and could think of things like this

    This is such an awesome idea! I love how versatile it is. What a fun project. This is something I’d love to do for Easter and then for other holidays throughout the year. The ideas are endless! Thank you for sharing!

    this would also be cute to do a cut out of a shaped bunny, or even a basket with eggs, very cute!
